DOT/USD 1-hour chart

dot price

DOT formed a clear symmetrical triangle on the 1-hour chart which now seems to be breaking out. The upper trendline was set around $4.3 and DOT is currently trading at $4.54 after establishing a small bull flag straight into continuation. 

Polkadot has also climbed above the 100-MA on the hourly chart. The breakout is clear as bulls got a lot of continuation after first breaking $4.4 and peaking at $4.79 a couple of hours later. The RSI, however, is close to overextension and could hint at a short-term pullback towards the 100-MA  at $4.55 before resuming the climb.

The top of the triangle is at $4.9 and the next resistance level is all the way at $5.45, the level bulls are aiming for.
