The Polkadot (DOT) price started to note a fall on its daily chart after Bitcoin could not stay above the $24,000 price.
Other significant altcoins followed suit with Bitcoin’s descent on its chart. Over the last 24 hours, DOT lost 3% of its market value. In the last week, the altcoin lost close to 6%.
The technical outlook also started to portray how the bulls were losing strength on the daily chart. Demand for the altcoin noted a downtick, which is why even accumulation fell on the chart.
With a fall in demand, DOT is headed toward its nearest support level, and a continued reduction in buying strength will push Polkadot below its support line.
If demand in the broader market improves with BTC appreciating and moving above the $24,000 mark, then demand for other altcoins, including DOT, will increase on its chart.
DOT must break past its overhead resistance to ensure that the coin does not incur further losses over the upcoming trading sessions. The market capitalization of DOT noted a decline, which meant that sellers had started to resurface in the market.
