The RSI has gradually moved into the overbought zone from the oversold zone, indicating intense buying pressure in the past two weeks. Similarly, On Balance Volume (OBV) made higher highs, indicating that volumes increased to add to the upside.

The above momentum gives the bulls the upper hand as they may try to clear the $5,272 barrier. This move could see DOT bulls target the $5,490 resistance, which is a potential gain of 3.8% if successful.

But the bears were in sight around the $5,272 barrier, and they would come in droves if the bulls failed to clear the barrier. As such, the bears could push the DOT price below $5,079, invalidating the bullish outlook outlined above.

Such a decline might prompt the bulls to look for new support at $4,977 or $4,886. These levels can act as short selling targets.

According to Santiment, DOT development activity has increased significantly over the past two weeks. Besides the bullish BTC, the positive metrics mentioned above may have fueled the recent DOT price rally.
