Bulls Remain Uptrend Despite Pullback
The 12-hour price chart revealed a continuation of MATIC’s uptrend, despite the bulls’ recent pullback. The rally from the $0.5274 support level made a series of higher lows before experiencing significant resistance at the $0.8503 level.
The price rejection at this level minimized the bullish belief to easily move past the resistance levels, despite the price continuing an upward trajectory. While bulls immediately found support at the critical $0.7414 support level to halt the retracement, indicators on the chart showed waning bullish momentum.
The Relative Strength Index (RSI) fell to the neutral 50, while the On Balance Volume (OBV) also decreased slightly. All things considered, it highlighted the drop in buying pressure and demand for MATIC.
A bearish retest of the $0.7414 support level could trigger an aggressive dip to the $0.6000 – $0.6500 area. However, bulls have a double-layer defense in the support level and a bullish trendline. A break below this bullish confluence would signal a clear shift in momentum.
A successful recovery for bulls at the support level could push the $0.9504 price level, which saw a lot of sideways price action between May and June.
The momentum is with sellers
