Polygon investors enjoyed this month as its native token MATIC made overwhelming price momentum since the start of the new year. MATIC price has brought an ROI of over 40% in just two weeks, awakening bullish expectations among traders after a prolonged bearish trend.
Moreover, several analysts believe that MATIC’s price will astonish investors with a surprising breakout upward; on the other hand, some believe that the MATIC token may witness increased selling pressure if it fails to hold its price near the resistance level, resulting in a downturn in the trend.
Polygon Gets Support From The Community
Polygon price has been rallying upward continuously, with a staggering gain of 40% in January, becoming a rising star in the altcoin market with the most significant gain. Moreover, altcoin traders switched their attention to the Polygon network as it recently announced the entry of leading global investment firm Hamilton Lane.
According to the announcement, the NASDAQ-listed firm with nearly $829 billion assets under management (AUM) reveals its $2.1 billion funds on the Securitize platform, a Polygon-based tokenization vehicle. With this initiative from the Polygon network, MATIC’s price is expected to push its limit upward and accomplish its short-term bullish goals in February.
On-chain analyst firm, Jarvis Labs, noted that funding rates on the MATIC price remain neutral, and long-positions witness a significant spike over short positions, hinting at investors’ bet on long-term gain. Additionally, the number of addresses holding the MATIC token has witnessed a spike in January which signifies solid interest from the crypto community.
MATIC Price May Kick Off A Bearish Bloodbath
MATIC price is waiting for a major test as the ongoing market conditions, including the 25-bps interest rate hike, may loosen investors’ confidence. However, the MATIC token seems to get less impact as it continues its upward journey with great partnerships, including Mastercard.
As of writing, MATIC’s price trades at $1.23, with an uptrend above 12% in the last 24 hours. A well-known altcoin trader, TradingStat, predicts that MATIC may prepare for a downward correction as it fluctuates near its fundamental resistance level at $1.27. The analyst stated that a failure to trade above $1.27 might plunge the MATIC token below the 31.8% Fib retracement level to $1.12.
However, a bullish trend above the resistance level may gain investors’ trust in registering a further uptrend with intense buying pressure. A consolidation above $1.28 may take the MATIC token upward with a stable rise and form a next resistance at $1.5.
