A 4-hour candlestick close below $40.4 would confirm a breakdown that has a price target of $31.7, a 22% move calculated by measuring the height between the start of the upper trendline to the beginning of the lower one.  

Bears have several price targets in between at $39.2 and $37.8, both previous lows established in the last week.  

If bulls want to have a chance of a breakout, they need to defend $40.4 and push Polkadot price toward the upper trendline at $44.2.  

Climbing above this key resistance level should drive Polkadot price toward $53.9. The initial price target is the previous all-time high at $46.8 and then the psychological level at $50.
