Bitcoin and most of the large and medium cap altcoins tumbled last week as news of a Russian invasion emerged and global markets reacted with fear. However, over the past few days, the price has hauled itself back above some important near-term levels.

Polkadot also saw some demand arrive in the past few days after dropping below the $15-mark recently.

A set of Fibonacci retracement levels (yellow) were plotted based on DOT’s move from $23.19 to $15.8. It presented the $13.79-level as a place where bulls could potentially enter the fray. DOT didn’t quite reach these lows but halted at $14.2 before seeing a bounce.

At the time of writing, the market structure was near-term bullish. This was because the price had climbed above the $17.1 (cyan box) area and retested it to find demand. Moreover, the $18.6 area acted as supply on the hourly timeframe over the past two weeks. However, the price pierced above this level in recent hours as well.

Therefore, a move upward can be expected in the next few days, targeting $20.5 and $23.2. Before that, a pullback to $18 or $17.5 could occur and would be a buying opportunity.

The RSI stayed above neutral 50 in the past few hours to show that bullish momentum remained strong. The Chaikin Money Flow also stayed above +0.05 to indicate significant capital flow into the market.

The OBV had been on a steady downtrend over the past few weeks. However, over the past five days, the OBV has seen a bounce, registering a higher low to signal buying volume.

Conclusion

The $17.2 area was flipped to demand and the price saw an hourly session close above $18.62 as well. A pullback to $17.5-$18 area, if seen, would likely be followed by another leg upward for Polkadot.
