Polkadot price shows bearish stregnth
Polkadot price continues to show reasons to believe that a sweep-the-lows event is underway. DOT, The cutting-edge smart contract and gaming token, experienced a 24% decrease last month after breaching an ascending trend line. The trend line supported the summer as prices fluctuated back and forth in a triangular fashion. An influx of volume was spotted during the most recent sell-off, which looks like a continuation pattern compared to previous sell-offs.
Polkadot price currently auctions at $6.30 as the bulls have been rejected from both the 8-day exponential and 21-day simple moving averages. The Relative Strength Index is back above support on larger timeframes showing the current sell-off may be short-lived. A pullback near $7.00 is plausible in the days to come.
Still, the triangular breach could result in a serious sell-off in the grand scheme. If the technicals are correct, a liquidation towards the $3.50 level could occur sometime in 2023. Such a decline would result in a 40% decrease from the current market value.
