MATIC’s bearish week to turn bullish? Analysts predict rally to $4-$5

  • MATIC’s price dropped by more than 5% in the last seven days. 
  • Market sentiment around Polygon turned bullish. 

Polygon [MATIC] has been struggling to lift its price for quite some time now. However, while this at first glance looked bearish, things might take a U-turn soon as MATIC was consolidating inside a pattern. A successful test of the pattern might result in a bull rally. 

Polygon at a crucial point

CoinMarketCap’s data revealed that MATIC’s price dropped by more than 5% in the last seven days. At the time of writing, MATIC was trading at $0.5778 with a market capitalization of over $5.72 billion.

The magnitude of MATIC’s bearish price action over multiple weeks was better revealed when we checked IntoTheBlock’s data. We found that only 39.8k addresses, accounting for 6% of MATIC investors, were “in the money.” 

This meant only 6% of MATIC investors were in profit.

However, World Of Charts, a popular crypto analyst, recently posted a tweet highlighting an interesting development.

As per the tweet, this was the last opportunity for investors to buy MATIC at a lower price as the token was testing a crucial support level of a bullish pattern.

Polygon has been consolidating inside the pattern since 2021.

If MATIC turns bullish and manages to break above the bullish pattern, then investors might witness a massive bull rally. In fact, the rally might as well push MATIC towards $4 or $5 in the coming months.

Additionally, its supply on exchanges dropped while its supply outside of exchanges increased. This clearly indicated a rise in buying pressure.

However, whales didn’t make any major moves, which was evident from the relatively flat supply held by the top addresses graph.
