A successful break above $8.88 could start another strong rally. In the stated case, the price could easily rally toward $9.50 in the near term. The next major resistance is seen near the $10.00 zone.

Are Dips Supported in DOT?

If DOT price fails to start a fresh increase above $8.45, it could start a fresh decline. The first key support is near the $7.80 level and the same trend line.
