Polkadot is falling to the previous low of $16

Today Polkadot (DOT) fell below the moving averages as the altcoin continues its downward correction. On February 28, the altcoin rallied to a high of $19, but the bullish momentum could not be sustained.

Currently, Polkadot is falling to the previous low of $16. The market has been fluctuating between $16 and $20 since the January 22 plunge. Buyers have been defending this key support of $16 since January 22. DOT has retreated to the low of $17. On the upside, a rally above the moving averages is expected if the price rises above the current support, but the altcoin will face a strong resistance at $22.
