MATIC/USD Daily Chart: Ranging
MATIC/USD Daily Chart
In the past few weeks, MATIC/USD gained momentum above the $0.62 July 20 floor to reach highs last seen since Mid June. Recently, MATIC posted five consecutive days in the green to reach $1.70 highs on Aug. 23. However, MATIC suffered a near-term correction on Aug 24. as Traders took profit from the five-day rally, pushing lower to $1.432.
Current easing could be seen as positioning for fresh upside, with extended dips expected to find ground near $1.41 and $1.27 levels ahead of the MA 50 ($1.12) barrier now reverted to support to keep bulls in play. Pullback so far looks like corrective action as the RSI hovers around the 60 marks. Fresh upside action requires a sustained break above the $1.70 resistance confirmed since Mid June to generate a bullish signal for a recovery towards $1.98, $2.43, and then the $2.82 all-time highs.
MATIC/USD 4-Hour Chart: Ranging
MATIC/USD 4-Hour Chart
As seen on the 4-hour chart, MATIC retreated from recent highs amid profit-taking. However, the bears have so far been unable to push the price below the $1.43 mark as bulls rose to the rescue. In case of further declines, the first line of support may be found at $1.273 and the MA 200, currently at $1.21. A decisive break below that area would turn the picture to a negative one, and open the door for a test of the $1 psychological handle.
On the flip side, a rebound in the market may encounter immediate resistance near the MA 50 support now turned barrier at $1.50, with an upside break paving the way for a retest of the $1.70 high ahead of the $2 range. Overall, the technical oscillators are transmitting mixed directional momentum, howbeit as long as this latest decline remains limited above the $1.436 low, it might be treated as a corrective phase.
