A commendable performance
DOT’s performance on the price front was also in investors’ favor as it registered double-digit gains in the last week, thanks to the ongoing bullish market. CoinMarketCap’s data revealed that DOT’s price increased by 13% during the last week, and at the time of writing, it was trading at $5.23 with a market capitalization of over $6 billion.
A look at DOT’s on-chain metrics suggested that the price hike did not happen just because of the market condition, but that several factors were at play. DOT’s Binance funding rate remained consistently high in the last seven days, reflecting its demand in the derivatives market.
Positive sentiments around DOT also remained relatively high last week, indicating the community’s trust in DOT. As per LunarCrush, DOT’s volatility increased considerably, increasing the chances of a continued uptrend in the days to follow.
Realistic or not, here’s DOT’s market cap in BTC’s terms
What should Polkadot investors expect?
DOT’s market indicators gave a bullish notion, as most of them suggested that the uptrend will sustain itself in the coming days. The MACD revealed a massive bullish upper hand in the market. DOT’s Chaikin Money Flow (CMF) was also substantially above the neutral mark.
According to the Exponential Moving Average (EMA) Ribbon, the 20-day EMA was fast approaching the 55-day EMA, increasing the chances of a bullish crossover. Moreover, the Bollinger Band revealed that DOT’s price entered a high volatility zone, further increasing the chances of a continued price surge.
However, DOT’s Money Flow Index (MFI) was in the overbought zone, which might be concerning for investors.
