MATIC price shows signs of an uptrend
MATIC price retraced 6% after setting up a local top at $1.15 on April 4 and tagged the four-hour orderblock’s upper limit at $1.09. This move absorbed the selling pressure and induced a spike in buying pressure that has resulted in a nearly 2.0% move that could be the start of a reversal.
The Relative Strength Index (RSI) for MATIC price is attempting to flip above the midpoint and the Awesome Oscillator (AO) is approaching the zero line, indicating a slow uptick in bullish momentum. Depending on how the week starts, MATIC price could notice a continuation of this move.
The first target is the buy stops resting above the $1.16 level. A successful liquidity hunt here without a noticeable reduction in the bullish momentum could see Polygon bulls attempt to sweep the $1.24 level for buy stops.
In total, this MATIC price move would constitute an 11.0% gain for traders.
