MANA buyers bounced back from the $2.42 support and drove the altcoin 15% high to retest the $2.8 mark. The higher price rejection on this resistance is evidence that sellers are defending this level. A bearish reversal from this resistance could slump the altcoin to January low support at $2. However, if buyers push the price above the $2.8 resistance, the traders have a 22% growth opportunity.
- Resistance level: $2.8, and $3.4
- Support level: $2.43, and $2.
The Relative Strength Index(46) slope curving down from the threshold indicates that buyers need more influence before entering positive territory. The MANA price oscillates between its 50-day and 200-day SMAs. However, the coin price trading above the 200-day SMA maintains a bullish tendency.
On the daily chart, Polygon (MATIC) has been trading in a downtrend channel, extending from the record highs of $2.92. Investors meet the reliable support of near $1.25, which has been tested multiple times. The formation of a ‘long-legged’ candlestick on Thursday suggested sellers have lost their patience and remain sidelined. A spike in buy order produces a green candle following the next day but to continue the upside run MATIC must break above the upside filters placed at 200-day and 50-day EMA placed at $1.67 and $1.09 respectively.
RSI: The Daily Relative Strength Index (RSI) is struggling at 42 near the average line.
MACD: The Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) is oscillating below the midline with a neutral bias.
