What to expect from Polkadot price?
Traders should expect Polkadot price to continue to fall towards its support level of $12 or even beyond that considering the bearish nature of the market today.The short term and midterm indicators also compliment this and describe an increasing bearish trend for the Polkadot price.
However, if the buyers defend the $12 support level, DOT price could recover and have a chance to move above the $13 and even challenge the $13.5 mark . However, due to the strong selling pressure and the low bullish momentum, further upwards movement is unlikely, and the price action will stagnate at this price level.
