Over the weekend, Bitcoin continued to trade below the $28,000 level as it started a correction phase leading to a decline in investor confidence.

Bargain hunters and dip buyers are expected to jump in as Bitcoin sees a significant drop,” he said.

However, DOT also seems to have drawn a head and shoulders pattern this year, which, if it plays out, could see DOT heading to as low as $5. With BTC and ETH experiencing corrections along with the rest of the market, DOT may be at the receiving end of macro sentiment when it comes to predicting its next move.Those looking to enter positions will want to see confirmation of this support being held, while those looking to buy on dips should wait for the H&S to potentially play out.Major levelsSupport: $5.8, $5.5, $5.0Resistance: $5.95, $6.2
