Polkadot Price Analysis: DOT stabilizing after rise, $10 likely

The original proof of authority cryptocurrency saw a small flash rise in the hours prior to writing and has been more stable than other cryptocurrencies in the top 10 list. The DOT price jumped from $8.30 to the $9.30 range in the early hours of 8th August 2022.

The flash rise happens at the same time as the relative strength index (RSI) showcases an oversold score of 86.33, indicating high DOT purchase volume. It is very likely that an institutional whale moved into the Polkadot investments pushing the price up; nevertheless, the news is good for day traders and hodlers alike.

Polkadot is enjoying good levels of support after small corrections since the flash rise in the price, and the RSI is also indicating a stable score of 51.46. The RSI score is also quite close to the monthly RSI moving average (MA) found at the 53.14 mark. DOT price displays a more stable price movement, but the overall buy/sell trend owing to global inflation is apparent on the RSI chart, with both the oversold and overbought threshold lines touched briefly in the past week.

At the time of writing, the DOT price stands at the $9.25 mark enjoying three levels of strong support. The Bollinger Band average (BB: basis) presents the first support level at the $9.24 mark, while the moving average (MA) presents the second support level at the $9.20 mark. The Bollinger Band lower limit is presenting the strongest support at the $9.14 mark.

Bollinger Band upper is the only resistance indicator at the time of writing, present at the $9.35 mark, and any more strong buying trends in the coming week can throw the price up to the $10 level. Once the $10 high is breached, the DOT price is primed to maintain the $10 high unless a major market event sways the price movement.
