The bulls could not sustain the bullish momentum

The price of Polkadot (DOT) continued its downward correction after the price fell below the previous low of the January 22 plunge.

Polkadot (DOT) price long-term analysis: bearish

On the bearish impulse of January 22, the cryptocurrency fell to a low of $16, but the bulls bought the dips. As a result, the altcoin rose to a high of $23. The bulls could not sustain the bullish momentum above the $23 high. 

Consequently, selling pressure resumes. The current downtrend reached the low of $14.07, but pulled back above the low of $16. The current bearish candlestick and the previous candlesticks have a long candle tail. These candlesticks indicate that there is strong buying pressure at the current support. Therefore, it is likely that the $16 low will hold. If DOT rises back above current support, buyers will try to regain resistance at $23. A break above the $23 high will cause Polkadot to rally above the moving averages. Moreover, the bullish momentum will extend to the high at $27.
