DeFi Index Reaches New ATH — Will DOT Follow Suit?

Polkadot (DOT) has been moving upwards, since bouncing at the $28.30 support area on April 23.

DOT is expected to continue moving upwards and eventually reach a new all-time high price.

Daily DOT Movement

DOT has been moving downwards since April 1, when it had reached an all-time high price of $48.36. The same day, it created a shooting star candlestick and dropped. 

The downward movement continued, until DOT bounced at the $28.30 support area on April 23. It has been moving upwards since. 

Currently, it is trading right at the $40 resistance area, which is created by the 0.618 Fib retracement resistance level. The next resistances are found at $48.40 and $61.70, respectively. 

Technical indicators are bullish, supporting the continuation of the upward movement. The MACD has given a bullish reversal signal. Both the RSI & Stochastic oscillator are increasing, the former having just crossed above 50. 

Therefore, the token is expected to successfully break out from the $40 resistance area and move towards a new all-time high.

Afterwards, the next most likely resistance area would be found at $84.
