- MATIC’s pullback hit July lows, clearing all recent gains.
- But buying volumes increased over the weekend.
The bearish sentiment from mid-July still looms in early August. Over this period, Bitcoin’s [BTC] price action has weakened, exposing most altcoins to reverse July gains. In particular, Polygon [MATIC] shed over 25% after prices slumped from $0.89 to around $0.65 (July lows).

However, MATIC saw renewed interest after retesting the July lows over the weekend (5-6 August). Despite the little spike in MATIC demand, BTC struggled to hold on to $29.0k, and extra losses could expose MATIC bulls to risk.
Will the 38.2% Fib level hold?
A Fibonacci retracement tool was placed between the June low and July high. Based on the tool, the 50% Fib level ($0.70) failed to hold the pullback. So far, 38.2% Fib level ($0.655) has been retested twice as support.
At the time of writing, MATIC bounced from the 38.2% Fib level. But the higher timeframe market structure was still bearish. However, with the weak BTC, a price rejection was feasible at the 50% Fib level ($0.70).
Below the 38.2% Fib lies bullish order blocks on the daily and weekly charts. The daily order block has been honored once and could ease further price slump if the 38.2% Fib level support cracks. So, the 38.2% and 23.6% Fib levels are key interest levels for bulls.
The Relative Strength Index and Chaikin Money Flow readings were below crucial thresholds – a negative at the time of writing. It implies weak buying pressure and capital inflows, suggesting the 50% Fib level could act as a roadblock unless BTC front a strong recovery above $29.5k.
More buying volumes over the weekend
Despite the negative price chart readings, the overall MATIC’s metrics in the spot market registered a renewed demand over the weekend.

According to CryptoMeter, the buy volume surpassed the sell volume at the time of writing. But the overall volume dip by over 40% could complicate further advance by bulls.
Nevertheless, the futures market also registered an uptick in demand over the weekend. According to Coinalyze, the Open Interest rates jumped from $122 million to over $127 million as CVD (Cumulative Volume Delta) surged.
