Technical indicators on the 1-day chart
The technical indicators remain bullish on the whole as the token has seen huge spikes in the short term. The price action is still above the 50-day and 100-day Moving Averages, implying higher prices will soon follow.
However, after an explosion from the upper end of the Bollinger Bands, we can see that the price action remains in the upper zone, indicating that bulls are in charge of the action.
The RSI indicator indicates that the buying pressure is still high as the gradient is slightly positive. This means that soon we might witness a price hike.
Although, the MACD indicator shows that the histogram has turned green as the MACD line continues to progress above the signal line. However, the distance between the two is closing in, indicating the possibilities of a bearish crossover.
The conclusion for today’s analysis can be done on a slightly sluggish note. With the launch of the Parachain auction on the Polkadot network, investors have become bullish about DOT.
