Polkadot price will dive to collect liquidity and push DOT to $50 – FXStreet

Polkadot price has struggled to successfully rise past the high probability reversal zone for over a month now. The recent attempt to shatter it failed, leading to a local top on October 12. Since then, DOT has been in a downtrend and is likely to continue heading lower.
Polkadot price set up three swing highs between September 7 and October 10. However, the most recent one failed to retest the 70.5% Fibonacci retracement level at $38.30, leading to an 11% pullback to where DOT currently stands.
While this downswing was likely, investors need to watch for an extension of this correction, causing a retest of the 50% Fibonacci retracement level at $30.14. Such a move will allow Polkadot price to produce an equal bottom and give the uptrend another go. 
If successful, DOT could put the 70.5% Fibonacci retracement level at $38.30 in its crosshairs and even reach the 79% Fibonacci retracement level at $41.68. However, a decisive close above $41.68 will allow Polkadot price to tag the range high at $50.04, constituting a 65% ascent.

A 10% retracement to the 50% Fibonacci retracement level at $30.14 might seem unlikely. DOT has a chance to reverse its trend quickly, especially if BTC fails its display of power. In that case, altcoins, including DOT, have a chance to prove themselves
Polkadot price will invalidate the bullish thesis if it fails to hold above the $29.14 support floor. This move might result in a retracement to the $25.21 or $22.23 footholds.

Bitcoin price has struggled to find a solid footing during this crypto winter. Support above $24,000 is becoming elusive amid frequent pullbacks. However, its overall technical picture points to a smooth ride to $28,000.
Apecoin (APE) surprised both friend and foe on Wednesday by still eking out gains for the trading day. The gains are fully attributed to the jump in global markets in equities and cryptocurrencies on the back of a miss in US inflation numbers, which provided a glimmer of hope economic conditions might be easing.
Polygon (MATIC) price is set to undergo another rejection at the $0.96 historic pivotal level identified on July 20th, 2021. With a possible rejection in the making, it could become clear that a breakout is not for now.
Tezos (XTZ) price is bouncing on the euphoria of Wednesday when US CPI dropped below estimates and came out lower-than-expected, which for once means good news. 
Bitcoin price shows an interesting setup that could reveal its next move. On closer inspection,  its technicals support a bearish outlook for the leading crypto.
