3. Technical Analysis on Polkadot

3.1. Volume Weighted Average Price (VWAP)

VWAP is a technical indicator used by a trader to gauge the overall trend of an asset price movement. VWAP line (orange line) represents the volume-weighted average price (average price here is defined as the average of high, low and close prices) while close price line (blue line) represents the price when DOT is closed at the end of every single day. 

Whenever blue line (close price) is above orange line (VWAP), it indicates that the asset is gaining momentum and being traded higher than its average price level. This would represent a 'buy' opportunity for short-term momentum trader whom task is to trade following the trend while a longer term mean-revision trader might take it as a 'sell' opportunity, anticipating that the price of DOT (blue line) to fall to its average level (orange line).

Whenever blue line (close price) is below orange line (VWAP), it indicates that the asset is losing momentum and being traded lower than its average price level. This would represent a 'sell' opportunity for short-term momentum trader whom task is to trade following the trend while a longer term mean-revision trader might take it as a 'buy' opportunity, anticipating that the price of DOT (blue line) to rise to its average level (orange line).

As of 02 Jun 2021, VWAP is suggesting that DOT is trading below its average price range of USD 29 to USD 32 per DOT.

3.2. Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD)

MACD is often used by trader as a momentum indicator. There are 2 lines that form the above charts, namely MACD (12, 26) lines and Signal(9) line, while the histogram is calculated by subtracting Signal (9) from MACD (12,26). Histogram would fall to the negative territory whenever MACD (12, 26) is trending at a lower level than Signal (9) and rise to the positive territory whenever MACD (12,26) is trending at a higher level than Signal (9).

MACD (12, 26) is computed by subtracting the 26-day exponential moving average (EMA) of DOT closing price from its 12-day EMA. 
Signal (9) on the other hand is calculated as the 9-day EMA of MACD (12,26). 

As MACD (12, 26) goes higher away from Signal (9), it signifies that DOT is gaining momentum and whenever it goes trends at a lower level than Signal (9),it signifies that DOT is losing momentum. 

As of 02 Jun 2021, MACD is suggesting that DOT is regaining momentum.

3.3. Bollinger Band

Bollinger band is often being used by mean-reversion trader as a gauge to assess how undervalued or overvalued an asset is. Its chart made up of 4 lines, namely:

- SMA (20) (blue line), which is the 20-day simple moving average price of DOT
- Upper Band (orange line), which is computed by adding 2 standard deviations of DOT on SMA (20)
- Lower Band (red line) , which is computed by subtracting 2 standard deviations of DOT from SMA (20)
- Close (green line), which is the daily closing price of DOT

Whenever close line (green) touches the lower band (red), it indicates that DOT is corrected too much and is being traded at an undervalued level, representing a 'buy' opportunity. On the other hand, whenever close line (green) touches the upper band (orange), it indicates that DOT is gaining too much momentum and is being traded at an overvalued level, thus indicating a 'sell' opportunity. 

As of 02 Jun 2021, Bollinger Band is suggesting that DOT is trading near an oversold (i.e. undervalued) position.

3.4. Relative Strength Index (RSI)

Just like Bollinger Band, Relative Strength Index is often being used by mean-reversion trader as a gauge to assess how undervalued or overvalued an asset is. There are 2 psychological levels, i.e. 30 and 70 in RSI. Whenever the RSI reaches 30, it indicates that DOT is corrected too much and is being traded at an undervalued level, representing a 'buy' opportunity. On the other hand, whenever RSI reaches 70, it indicates that DOT is gaining too much momentum and is being traded at an overvalued level, thus indicating a 'sell' opportunity. 

As of 02 Jun 2021, RSI is suggesting that DOT is neither overbought nor oversold (i.e. trading at fair value).

Based on the technical analysis presented above, quantdoge holds a bullish view on the short-term price action of DOT, but I could be wrong, hence please make your careful due diligence before making any financial decision.

Based on the 100-day 95% historical Value-at-Risk (VaR) profile of Polkadot defined above, DOT seems to trade at a very much higher risk level on 02 Jun 2021 as compared to 10 days before on 23 May 2021, with its biggest pullback being seen at - 48.3% on a single day during the last 100 days. However, I could be wrong, hence please make your careful due diligence before making any financial decision.
