What are the hurdles in MATIC price rally to $2

MATIC faces competition from other Ethereum Layer 2 scaling tokens. At the same time, as seen in the MATIC/USDT one-day price chart below, MATIC price is currently in a support zone. 

Polygon’s native token needs to conquer the support zone and rally above $1.30, to face resistance at the 38.2% Fibonacci Resistance at $1.31. There is a key resistance zone between $1.35 and $1.46, this is crucial to MATIC’s rally to $2, since the last time the Layer 2 token hit its bullish target of $2 this is where it battled resistance.

As seen in the chart above, beyond the resistance zone, the next set of resistances are at the 50% Fibonacci Retracement, $1.74 and $1.87, two levels that acted as resistances in MATIC’s previous run up to $2.

In the event that the bullish thesis is invalidated, the Layer 2 token could find support at the monthly low, that coincides with the 23.6% Fibonacci Retracement level at $0.94.
