Polkadot price posted significant gains over the past week after Bitcoin showed a recovery on its chart. Other altcoins have also moved in the same direction. At the moment though, DOT has been trying to break the immediate resistance at $5.
In the last 24 hours, the DOT noted a 2% drop, but that could be attributed to a slight drop in demand for the altcoin. The technical outlook for Polkadot remains bullish. Buyers and demand for the altcoin have to continue to rise, and soon the DOT will travel above the $5 level to trade near the $6 level.
Accumulation has been building over the past week as buyers have outpaced sellers at press time. However, it is critical that the DOT breaks above the $5 mark, or the coin will start trading lower, causing a loss of investor interest.
The market structure for DOT remains bullish, as the coin managed to turn some resistance marks into support levels last week. A push from the buyers will no doubt strengthen the efforts of the bulls to cross the stiff price top of $4.90. Polkadot’s price is trading 91% below its all-time high assured in 2021.
