The past week saw Polkadot rebound from $17 which allowed the alt to form a higher high and maintain its uptrend. Prices now traded within the confines of an ascending triangle but there were some warning signs in the market. At the time of writing, DOT traded at $21.3, up by 3.9% over the last 24 hours.

Meanwhile, ADX- which measures the strength of a current market trend, was also on a steady decline. Considering these factors, DOT could form a higher low as opposed to an immediate breakout, however, any low formed above $20.5 would continue to support a bullish thesis. On the flip side, a fall below $19.5 would likely result in a breakdown from the pattern.
There were reasonable signs to suggest that DOT could lose steam pushing to $24. Multiple bearish divergences were spotted across its indicators and some downside was expected moving forward. Meanwhile, a close below $19.5 would leave DOT open to additional drawdowns.
