Polkadot [DOT] bulls were upbeat about the $8 value after overcoming a hot sell pressure zone. So far, DOT has rallied by 70%, building on the impressive upswing in January. But most importantly, recent Bitcoin’s [BTC] retest of $25K boosted DOT bulls to overcome a crucial sell pressure zone.

Will the new support zone hold?
DOT faced significant challenges despite the rally witnessed in the past several weeks. At the end of January, it went into an extended consolidation phase and oscillated between $6.103 and $6.614. It broke above the range on February 3 but hit the supply zone at $7.000, prompting it to break below the ascending line.
The price rejection at $7.000 set DOT into a correction and lost about 14% of its value. But the plunge was checked by the previous $6.103 support level. After that, the recovery inflicted by bulls cleared the obstacle at $7.000 and flipped the resistance into support.
At the time of writing, the support was confirmed, clearing bulls to target higher resistance levels. Long-term bulls could target $8 if they cleared another hurdle at $7.751.
A break below the $7.000 resistance-turned-support will invalidate the bullish thesis. Such a downswing will tip bears to look for shorting opportunities at $6.614 or $6.103. An extremely bearish scenario could see DOT hit the $5.000 level.

DOT saw a positive Funding Rate and improved investors’ outlook
DOT saw an improved investors’ outlook, as shown by retreating weighted sentiment.
The sentiment moved from the negative territory and was slightly above the neutral level.
In addition, DOT’s demand in the derivatives market was impressive, as highlighted by the positive Funding Rate. Collectively, these positive metrics suggest a bullish sentiment that could tip bulls to target $8.
Besides, about $450M worth of short-positions was liquidated in the past 24 hours, according to Coinalyze. It further reinforces the possibility of bulls moving toward September’s resistance level of $8.027.
