MATIC bears prepare for slide toward $1.64
MATIC price has formed a rising wedge pattern on the 12-hour chart, suggesting a bearish outlook for the token. The governing technical pattern projects a 32% nosedive toward $1.64 if Polygon breaks below the lower boundary of the prevailing chart pattern at $2.34.
The first line of defense for MATIC price will appear at the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement level at $2.37, coinciding with the 50 twelve-hour Simple Moving Average (SMA).
Before the bears reach the pessimistic target given by the prevailing chart pattern at $1.64, additional support will emerge at the 50% retracement level at $2.20, then at the 100 twelve-hour SMA at $2.11.
Further footholds may appear at the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement level at $2.02, then at the 200 twelve-hour SMA at $1.83. The last line of defense for MATIC price will be uncovered at the 78.6% Fibonacci retracement level at $1.77 before the sellers tag the bearish target at $1.64, coinciding with the support line given by the Momentum Reversal Indicator (MRI).
