The selling pressure on MATIC has seen bears smash key support levels at $1.0778 and $0.9504. However, bulls have been able to briefly stem the bearish tide at the $0.8355 support level. The support level has held strong over the past seven days.

Recent price action over the past 24 hours revealed that the $0.8355 support level might be key to a bullish reversal. The support level has already been tested three times with the level holding firm so far.

A look at on-chart indicators showed that buyers might be growing in strength. The RSI showed a reading of 54 to denote increasing buy pressure. The OBV also showed a slight uptick to hint at increasing volume. The CMF rose sharply to the zero mark, signaling more inflows for MATIC.

Bulls will be aiming to push on to test the resistance level at $0.9504. On the flip side, a break of the bullish defense at the $0.8355 support level could see bears aim for the January low of $0.7414.
