  • Market structure remained bullish due to the overwhelming strength of buyers in the last five days
  • A retest of the $6.3-level will be likely should DOT close a session below $6.8

Polkadot [DOT] has leaned strongly north in December so far. Despite the pullback from $7.68 over the weekend, the altcoin retained its bullish market structure. Bitcoin’s [BTC] latest dip saw DOT recede considerably too.

It is possible that a short-term resistance level just above $7 could rebuff bulls should DOT bounce in the coming hours or days. What should traders watch out for next?

Short-term move, subsequent retracement offered some clarity on the way forward

From 7 December to 9 December, DOT saw a swift move north from $5.9 to $7.69. Soon after, the bulls were beaten back and prices momentarily dipped to $6.285 a few hours before press time.

The explosive rally past $7 was used to plot a set of Fibonacci retracement levels (cyan). The 78.6% retracement level was at $6.284, where Polkadot prices withdrew. Therefore, two scenarios are possible. The bullish one is where DOT surges higher without dropping below $6.8.

The slightly bearish scenario, at least in the short term, would be a slow drop towards $6.285 once more. Following such a dip, the uptrend could resume. In either case, to the north, the next bullish target is at $7.9 – A higher timeframe resistance level. The $8.21 and $8.8-levels could obstruct the buyers as well.
