DOT Drops to Key Support: Will Bears Prevail or Can Bulls Rebound?

DOT hit the range low of $6.3 again with sellers looking to break the buying strength at the key support level.

Polkadot (DOT) extended its range bound movement, as it price sank to the range low of $6.32 for the fourth time in April. Earlier in April, DOT had looked to push on from the $6.32 support level but failed to breach the price resistance at the $7.5 price area.

This led to a slow dip for DOT with the bearish pressure in the market accelerating the selling pressure. With multiple indicators flashing more bearish signals, DOT sellers could break the bullish defense at the key support level.

Sellers Look to Close Below $6.3

Zooming out to the higher timeframe (daily), it showed that the $6.3 support level has been vital for buyers. The buying strength at the level has held firm on multiple occasions with sellers unable to break below the level.

However, the selling pressure on DOT coupled with the overall bearish sentiment in the market could give sellers an advantage.

A look at the Chaikin Money Flow (CMF) on the four-hour timeframe noted strong capital outflows with a reading of -0.19. In similar fashion, the Relative Strength Index (RSI) stood at the edge of the oversold zone, denoting heavy selling pressure.

Both indicators were heavily bearish on the lower timeframe and could yield short term opportunities for sellers.

A full bearish candle close on the four-hour timeframe below $6.3 would serve as a short signal with target levels at $4.5 to $5. The likelihood of the support level caving is high, as every test of a support/resistance level weakens the buy/sell strength at the level.
