MATIC price saw a steep downtrend in under 48 hours that has pushed it to a critical support barrier. Now, a resurgence of buyers could start its uptrend toward the recent swing highs.
On the 4-hour chart, MATIC price shows that it is finding a foothold deep inside a demand zone that ranges from $0.685 to $0.768. A spike in buying pressure here could push Polygon out of this containment and set the stage for a new rally.
Supporting this quick run-up is the Momentum Reversal Indicator (MRI), which flashed a green ‘one’ candlestick. This setup projects a one-to-four candlestick upswing.
Hence, investors can expect buying pressure to pick up. In such a scenario, the MATIC price could rally toward the first resistance level at $0.828, a 12% upswing from its current position.
A breach of this barrier could see Polygon rally to $0.872.
While MATIC price could stay range-bound between $0.685 and $0.872, a decisive breach above the upper end could see a retest of its all-time high at $0.94.
MATIC/USDT 4-hour chart
Regardless of the bullish indications, if MATIC price slices through $0.685, it stays below this area for an extended period. Investors could expect an invalidation of the bullish thesis for a short period.
If this were to happen, Polygon could slide 10% to the demand barrier at $0.618.
