The market structure saw a shift toward bearish after the recent drop below $0.62
The four-hour market structure had been bullish, with the most recent higher low at $0.614. A few hours before press time, MATIC prices dived lower and signaled short-term bearish intent. In the $0.57-$0.59 sat a twelve-hour bullish breaker block.
This region had confluence with the range high (yellow) at $0.589. Therefore, a retest of the $0.59-$0.6 would offer an ideal buying opportunity targeting $0.65 or higher. The On-Balance Volume (OBV) saw an uptick over the past week to reflect increased buying pressure.
