Polkadot Price Forecast: DOT recovery becomes an uphill battle while overhead pressure mounts

Polkadot hits a snag under $35, abandoning the upswing to highs past $40.
DOT seeks support at the 50 SMA on the 4-hour chart while trying to avert declines under $30.

The Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) indicator had flipped massively bullish from last week. However, the indicator’s upward momentum has dramatically reduced. At the time of writing, the MACD line prints a horizontal trend, implying that the slightest resistance path is sideways.
