calculating MATIC’s chances of recovering from this support

Recent buying efforts pushed Polygon [MATIC] back above the daily 20 EMA (red) and 50 EMA (cyan) as the price moved to test the $0.94-$0.93 resistance range.

MATIC reversed its bearish pattern after reaching a plateau in this range. In order to recover in the coming sessions, buyers may try to limit the streak of red candles.

MATIC was trading at $0.8906 at press time, down 3.62% in the previous 24 hours.


Can the north-looking EMAs support MATIC’s bull run?

After an expected u-turn from the nine-month trendline resistance (now support), the alt saw a bearish flag on the daily chart as the sellers re-entered the market. Nonetheless, the recent rebound from the $0.698 support induced a buying rally above the 20/50 EMA.

MATIC’s solid double-digit growth in the last two weeks aided the alt in retesting the $0.94 resistance barrier. With the 20/50 EMAs now looking north after the golden cross, the buyers could look to maintain their edge. 

A continued decline from the immediate resistance could find resting grounds at the $0.87-mark near the 20 EMA (red). A potential/ immediate reversal from this support could present buying opportunities. The first major resistance would lie in the $0.94 zone. Any close above this ceiling could carve a path for further gains. 

Any decline below the 20 EMA could invalidate the near-term bullish inclinations by delaying the recovery prospects.

The Relative Strength Index (RSI) plunged from the overbought levels to depict ease in buying power. Any reversals from the midline could highlight the underlying bullish edge. A close below the equilibrium could hint at a bullish invalidation.

Since mid-September, MATIC’s social dominance marked consistently lower peaks. On the other hand, the price action diverged to depict an incline. Should the price follow, MATIC could see a pullback in the coming sessions.

To top it up, an analysis of the MATIC Futures Open Interest marked a 5.51% 24-hour decrease alongside the decrease in price over the past day. This reading suggested a slight bearish inclination in the futures market.

Finally, investors/traders must keep a close eye on Bitcoin’s movement as MATIC shares a relatively high correlation with the king coin.
