DOT/USD Daily Chart
Intense selling pressure on Polkadot (DOT) pulled the price slightly below the daily MA 50 at $4.7. A mild rebound occurred but the bulls’ attempt to push the price beyond $5 was met with resistance. Polkadot bulls must now seek to flip this crucial level into support before the uptrend can resume. Once this mission is successful, the pair will make one more attempt to rise above the $5.64 barrier and then $6.0.
On the flip side, the bears are unlikely to give up their advantage easily. They will try to defend the $5 resistance level. In the event of a rejection, it may increase the possibility of a break below the MA 50 at $4.7. The bulls are most likely to buy the dip at $4.5 which coincides with the ascending trendline support. Further declines may cause the DOT/USD pair to retest the $4.0 marks to $3.54 support range.

DOT/USD 4-Hour Chart
The hunt for higher support continues on DOT/USD after its loss of the 4 hour MA 50 and MA 200 support levels. Massive sell orders may be triggered if Polkadot (DOT) slides beneath $4.70. Further down, support is envisaged first at $4.5 and then $4.35. On the flip side, an increase in demand for DOT may cause a bullish reversal to come into the picture.
In this case, a rebound may occur past the MA 200 at $4.92 and then $5.08 coinciding with the MA 50 close. The DOT/USD pair is only bullish above $5.20. The main resistance is found at the $5.64 and $6.0 level. As long as DOT/USD pair trades beneath $5.0 marks, the $4.50 to $3.54 support zone levels may be tested by sellers.
