On 15 September, the market structure on the two-hour chart of Polkadot shifted bullishly when the recent lower high at $4.1 was breached. Following this development, the buyers drove prices as high as the $4.224 resistance before facing rejection.

The past five days saw large volatility in the DOT prices, with $4.05 and $4.2 serving as support and resistance levels respectively. To the dismay of the bulls, the recent slump in Bitcoin [BTC] prices brought DOT back toward the $4 mark.

There was a bullish order block (cyan box) that extended from $3.91-$4.02 where a bullish reversal could occur. In particular, the $3.95 support was one to watch as it brought the bullish structural break last week. Hence buyers can seek to enter a long trade at that level, with a stop-loss below the $3.89 mark.

This information suggested that DOT could sweep these lows in search of liquidity, possibly form a deviation to the south reaching around $3.85 before a short-term bullish revival. This respite bounce is what traders can look to ride higher and book profits on, but BTC and DOT volatility could make this venture risky in the coming days.
