MATIC’s negative signals at the end of September prompted a bearish bias in the previous price prediction. But the buyers regained control and an extended recovery tip MATIC to recover September losses.
Can bulls extend the recovery?
The rally at the end of September inflicted a bullish breakout and retested the range-high of $0.544 as a support. The range-high had a confluence with an invalidated H12 bearish OB of $0.5347 – $0.5496 (cyan).
Buyers exploited the confluence area as re-entry for profit-taking at the overhead target of $0.5709 – $0.5884 (red). If another price reversal occurs at the overhead roadblock, another buying opportunity could present itself at the range-high.
If so, such a move could present a potential gain of +4% to buyers.
But a drop below the range-high will invalidate the bullish bias, especially if BTC posts extra losses in the next few hours.
However, price indicators were positive and didn’t signal such a massive drop was at hand at press time. The Relative Strength Index (RSI) and On-Balance Volume (OBV) were positive. This indicated buying pressure and Spot market demand improved in the past few days.
