Polkadot is likely to face resistance at the $48 high

The price of Polkadot (DOT) has retreated over the past two days after reaching a high of $43.20. Buyers were unable to break above the resistance zone at $44.

The altcoin is falling back from the recent high and is likely to hit the low of $39. The uptrend will resume if the price finds support above the recent low. On the upside, the market will go up to $50 if the bulls break the resistance at $44.

Moreover, the cryptocurrency is approaching the overbought zone of the market. Meanwhile, altcoin is struggling with the initial resistance at $44. Polkadot could be contained between $39 and $44 if the bulls fail to break the initial resistance at $44.
