The above chart of DOT noted the rising value of the digital asset along an ascending channel, however, instead of witnessing a push upwards, the price broke down. The value peaked at $6.10, following which it began its descent.
The dropping price has finally stabilized, however, it may not witness a price swing anytime soon.
The reason for DOT’s consolidation is that currently, the market has been witnessing the selling and the buying pressure being equaled. This was highlighted by the Relative Strength Index, which was going to surpass the overbought territory as the price appreciated. However, the fall has brought the buying and selling pressure to a level.
Whereas the Awesome Oscillator indicated a rise in the short-term selling and the value turned negative, indicating a low momentum. As the digital asset did not have enough short-term momentum to carry one, we may see the value move sideways.
As DOT’s price recently broke down from a bearish trend, the price may not see another move in the short-term for the time being. The consolidating price of the asset is given rise to bearish pressure in the market, however, the asset may move close to the $5.7 price level.
