DOT/USD 1-hour chart

DOT is now facing a resistance level at $8.72, which is the last high, and $9 where the 100-SMA is currently located. Breaking out above these two levels can quickly drive Polkadot price towards $10 again.

DOT/USD 4-hour chart

On the 4-hour chart, Polkadot has established a higher low at $7.9 compared to $7.16 and needs to climb above $8.72 to establish an uptrend. The MACD is on the verge of a bull cross for the first time since January 1 which adds credence to the bullish outlook. 

However, a rejection from the high of $8.72 has the potential to create a small double top on the 4-hour chart and push Polkadot down to $7.16 again as there is very little support on the way down.
