MATIC Looks Bullish
The rise from the support area at $0.61 to the resistance at $0.67 is now testing the confluence of the two support levels, which is a potential bullish target.
If MATIC closes above the confluence of the two major moving averages, it could push the token toward the 0.618 Fib line and its 200-3D and 50-3D exponential moving averages (EMAs) at around $1.11. This would represent a significant jump from its June 14 price level.
A break below the confluence of the two major trends could cause MATIC to fall back toward the $0.29 to $0.35 area, which was low in June. It could also be triggered by higher inflation. The decline in the cryptocurrency markets could additionally be linked to the rising consumer price index in the US.
The consumer price index for the US rose to 9.1% in July, the highest level in over four decades. According to Raphael Bostic, the president of the Atlanta Fed, the central bank is likely to raise interest rates by a full percentage point in July.
Polygon Price Prediction for 2022
The price action of MATIC has been in a bullish trend since June 2021. It currently trades above the $0.80 support area, indicating a potential short-term bullish trend reversal.
The rising momentum indicators suggest that the market may rise higher. The Relative Strength Index is currently at its highest since March, while the Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) is above its signal line.
If a rally takes place, the 200-day simple moving average is the next resistance level that investors should consider. However, if the price goes above this level, then gains of over 100% could be possible in a short period.
According to estimates by the financial website Wallet Investor, the outlook for MATIC is positive. The algorithm’s target price of $0.73 is currently at 16% upside potential. On the other hand, Gov.Capital believes that the price of Bitcoin could reach $0.75 within the next couple of months. This suggests that the short-term potential of the cryptocurrency is still strong.
