MATIC price has risen 1.5% over the last 24 hours to trade at $1.934. Polygon must defend the 50-SMA support to overcome the current selling pressure. A rise above the downtrend line will confirm a bullish breakout.
MATIC price rallied approximately 29% on October 28 to hit a high of $2.241. This MATIC rally shattered the $1.71 resistance as the Polygon bulls announced their return to town.

MATIC Price Bulls Must Defend The 50-SMA Support
Polygon price finds dynamic support from the 50 four-hour simple moving average since the late trading sessions of Sunday. This has seen the asset rise approximately 1.53% to the current rice around $1.934.
A break out above the downtrend line around $1.940 could trigger an upward rally towards $2.40 and eventually tag the all-time high (ATH) around $2.70.
The upsloping moving averages and the position of the Relative Strength Index (RSI) above the midline is a suggestion that the bulls are currently in control of MATIC price.
MATIC/USD Four-Hour Chart
On the four-hour chart, Polygon has bounced off the 50-period Simple Moving Average (SMA) at $1.823 which is currently providing robust support.
Therefore, a slip below the 50-SMA will invalidate the aforementioned positive outlook, a move that will indicate that the recent break above $2.20 may have been a bull trap. Because a drop below this level could see MATIC price drop to the $1.644 and $1.753 zone.
However, if bulls push the price above the downtrend line, it will be a suggestion that the overhead pressure is reducing. If this happens, it will be the start of an uptrend as bulls target the ATH above $2.70.
At the time of writing, MATIC teeters around $1.934 on most crypto exchanges.
