Polkadot (DOT): Completely Recovers from this Year’s Market Crash – FX Leaders



*DOT: The early gains of 2021, erased by the crypto market crash, have now been recovered


Polkadot (DOT) has returned to where it came from. Early this year, it rallied above $10.00, rising all the way up to $49.723 (a 390+% gain for the year) before coming back to earth and giving back almost all of its gains during the market crash of May 2021. 

Since then, DOT has been on a steady climb, as it almost fully recovers the entire market crash losses it encountered mid-year 2021. Since the $10.37 low of July 2021, DOT has rallied to a high of $32.07 this week – marking an astounding 300+% gain in less than 3 months. 

V-Shaped Recovery

What we saw in DOT is characterized by technical analysts as a “V-shaped recovery” – this is the best-case scenario after a sharp decline, like the crypto crash last May. It is “V-shaped” because, aside from the price chart looking like the letter “V”, its recovery is quick, sharp and sustainable. It totally negated the negative sentiment that the crypto crash brought to it.

*DOT daily timeframe chart, bullish case growing 

Here are key some technical observations that support Polkadot’s bullish case: 

    1. Didn’t fall below the $10.00 major psychological support level during the market crash
    2. A golden cross formed as the 50-day moving average (gray line) crossed above the 200-day moving average (purple line)
    3. A bull flag is forming after the most recent breakout; it looks like it will be heading towards all-time high levels soon. 

Given how strong the cryptocurrency market has been lately, led by Bitcoin’s potential return to $60,000, it seems like DOT and all the other altcoins may soon be heading towards all-time high levels as well
