The bullish momentum failed to break through the 50-day moving average

The price of Polkadot (DOT) turned from the recent high, but found support above the breakout level of $20. Earlier, bulls broke through $20 resistance including the 21-day moving average line.

However, the bullish momentum failed to break through the 50-day moving average. Had the bulls broken through the 50-day moving average, the market would have risen to $30. Since the bulls failed to break the recent high, the altcoin has now found support above the $20 breakout level.

Currently, Polkadot is likely to be forced to move sideways as long as the cryptocurrency price remains above the 21-day moving average and below the 50-day moving average. Today, DOT/USD is trading at $20.54 as of press time. There is a bullish candle indicating a possible upward movement of the cryptocurrency.
