MATIC awaits for the upside continuation
On the daily chart, polygon (MATIC) has depreciated 55% while moving inside the downside channel. Investors after hitting the lows in January records an ascent of 60%. After a brief dip below the crucial 200-EMA (Exponential Moving Average), the resurgence of buying pressure pierced above the mentioned moving average once again. The above-average volumes have been supportive of the bullish sentiment.
However, a strong conviction is required to carry on the current price action. If the buying pressure is able to produce a green candlestick on the daily chart then it would strengthen the possibility of bulls testing the psychological $2.0 level.
This would also coincide with the upper trend line of the descending channel. Investors will be aiming for the $2.40 horizontal resistance level from there.
On the flip side, a shift in the bullish sentiment would seek the lower target. As price is already pressured below the 200-EMA at $1.69. From here on the altcoin might break below this foothold and make its way toward the next support level at $1.20.
