  • Polkadot was near the range lows but saw a bullish structure break.
  • The rise in demand meant the range highs were the next target, provided Bitcoin does not encounter sharp losses.

Polkadot [DOT] saw some bullish pressure emerge in the past 24 hours. On Monday, 28 August, Polkadot was able to breach a short-term resistance level at $4.56. This signaled bullish intent. However, the sentiment remained bearish across the crypto market.

Realistic or not, here’s DOT’s market cap in BTC’s terms

Bitcoin [BTC] was hovering above the $26k level, but was indecisive about the trajectory of its next move. It was likely that another move toward $25k could occur – which would lead to losses for DOT. Should traders lean bearish or bullish on the altcoin?

The 1-day chart showed that the $4.5 zone highlighted in cyan was a bullish order block. The $5.5 area marked in red represented a bearish order block, and together they showed that DOT could trade within this range in the coming weeks.

A look at the lower timeframe charts showed that there was a bullish market structure break on Monday when DOT climbed above the recent lower high at $4.56. Since it occurred within the higher timeframe order block, it appeared likely that bulls could drive prices higher.

Yet, the OBV did not see a strong move higher and continued to cling to a two-month-old support level. Meanwhile, the RSI remained below neutral 50 on the daily chart to show momentum favored the sellers.

On 27 August, DOT fell from $4.52 to $4.42. This saw a contraction in the Open Interest, but a day later, the price of DOT shot higher to reach $4.68. The OI also climbed higher, which signaled an influx of capital and showed bullish sentiment in the futures market.

The spot CVD was flat over the weekend but noted a small move higher on Monday when the bullish structure break occurred. Therefore, they signaled further gains were possible. Yet, a volatile Bitcoin could cause losses for the short-term DOT bulls.
