DOT primed for 27% ascent

  • Polkadot price formed a double bottom on the daily time frame and rallied 25% so far.
  • A continuation of this uptrend is likely to result in a 27% ascent from its current position.
  • The MRI also indicates that a buy signal is around the corner, adding a tailwind to the bullish thesis.

Polkadot price crumbled as it tested a crucial resistance level on September 14. This downswing seems to have formed a bottom and rallied exponentially on September 22, indicating that an upswing is on its way.

Polkadot price ready to climb higher

Polkadot price rose 53% between September 8 and September 14 as it encountered the 70.5% Fibonacci retracement level at $38.31. However, a brutal rejection here led to a swift sell-off that crashed DOT by 34% to form a double bottom at $25.21.

Now, the Polkadot price is hovering above the 50% Fibonacci retracement level at $30.16. Moreover, the Momentum Reversal Indicator (MRI) signal flashed a yellow ‘up’ arrow, indicating that the next red daily candlestick will display a buy signal. 

Therefore, a resurgence of buyers is likely to push DOT to slice through the $34.93 resistance barrier and retest the $38.31, constituting a 27% advance.

In a bullish case, the Polkadot price could extend the run-up to $41.69.

DOT/USDT 1-day chart

While things seem to have improved for the Polkadot price, a breakdown of the 50% Fibonacci retracement level at $30.16 will start to sow seeds of doubt into the minds of buyers.

If the investors continue to sell, DOT might revisit the $25.21 support floor. 

A decisive daily close below this level will create a lower low,  invalidating the bullish thesis and triggering a crash to $22.23.
