However, it could not overcome this level and ended up falling into the 200-day MA around $27.50 during the market crash last week.

Since then, DOT solidified the support at the 200-day MA and started to climb higher again. On Sunday, it surged above $35.30 and closed over the resistance. After a brief retracement to $32.50 yesterday, DOT has finally surged well above $35.30 to reach near $38 today.
