Polkadot price analysis
DOT is trading around $6.64, down about 6% in the past 24 hours and only 4% up in the past week. The token has formed a downtrend line since the negative flip that began on February 19 when the DOT/USD pair hit a 30-day high around $7.74.
The technical breakdown from the resistance line of the ascending channel has DOT currently at risk of free-falling, with the demand zone at $6.90 and then $6.71 gone on the 4-hour chart. If bulls fail to hold the area around $6.35, the price could plummet to the main support line at $6.00.

Price is also below the 50 day Exponential Moving Averages (EMA), which is now the immediate resistance line. DOT is also just off the 200-day EMA as seen in the 4-hour chart.
A breakdown beyond this line could confirm a bearish flip as suggested by the slopping Relative Strength Index (RSI).

DOT is also in oversold territory on the daily chart, with the 50 EMA currently providing the main support line around $6.35. However, a bounce off the lower trendline of the ascending channel suggests bulls still have a chance of pushing DOT higher.
Whether this during the ETHDenver summit or later may nonetheless depend on the overall market outlook, particularly what Bitcoin price does happen over the next few days.
