The Polygon (MATIC) price is currently at a crucial moment. Despite bullish news, MATIC has been in a downtrend since mid-February. After retesting the March 10 low yesterday, the price is at a turning point.
According to data from on-chain data provider IntoTheBlock, Polygon token holders in profit fell to 34% this week. This is the lowest level since February. Therefore, analyst @CryptoTheBeast_ raises the question whether MATIC will turn around here or continue its downward trajectory?

MATIC Price Needs Quick Reversal
The 1-day chart of MATIC reveals that MATIC lost the “bull line”, the 200-day Exponential Moving Average (EMA) last Thursday. The indicator served as Polygon’s key support on March 10 and again in late March this year.
Since breaking below the 200-day EMA, currently at $1.0521, MATIC failed to rise above it. If there is no timely recovery and another rejection (like yesterday), MATIC could fall towards the support level at $0.81.
However, with an RSI of 35 on the 1-day chart, MATIC is near oversold territory. So, this price could be the biggest pain for now. On the other hand, regaining the 200-day EMA could avoid this scenario. As then, the 23.6% Fibonacci level at $1.09 is expected to come into focus.
A dynamic move above this area would open the possibility for a rise towards the 38.2% Fibonacci level at $1.185. In this area at the latest, greater selling pressure from the bears can be expected.
Afterwards, the next target of great importance is the 50% Fibonacci level at $1.25. In mid-March, MATIC got rejected at this level and thus failed to achieve a reversal towards the February high.
