- Polkadot is in a pennant and ready for the breakout.
- With five good technical reasons, bulls look to take the upper hand in DOT price action.
- A clear run higher will spell 35% returns for the bulls.
Polkadot (DOT) price has formed a pennant, with both the highs and the lows squeezed toward each other. With momentum and volume building on both sides of the spectrum, a breakout in DOT price looks to favor the bulls as they hold the most supporting elements.
Bulls hold all the aces to flush the bears out of DOT price action
Polkadot price has been stuck in a pennant for the most significant part of September, with prices squeezed in from both sides. A closer look spells fortune for the bulls with five technical elements in favor of a long. The first element is the monthly pivot at $26.67, holding price action in check since Sunday. The level launched price action back to the upside after bears had the upper hand short term. In that pivot holding, buyers reclaimed ground above both the 55-day and 200-day Simple Moving Average (SMA). Two supporting elements are helping out the bulls. With the 55-day crossing the 200-day SMA to the upside, the signal of a Golden Cross forming is flashing for technical traders to choose sides with the bulls.
DOT price action in the Relative Strength Index (RSI) is back below 50, making it slightly oversold. There is yet another reason for buyers to add some DOT coins to their portfolio. With global sentiment in favor of risk-on and stocks back in the buy-the-dip playbook, this makes Polkadot price very attractive with this discount.
