Over the last few trading sessions, the MATIC price has begun to slow its price correction. Over the last 24 hours, the coin has depreciated by over 5%. The past week was quite bearish for the altcoin, as it lost 18% of its market value.
Although the altcoin is losing value, it has been attempting to reverse those losses over the recent trading sessions. The technical outlook for MATIC depicted a bearish structure as demand for the altcoin continued to fall on the daily chart.
Accumulation also remained low as buying strength was in the bearish zone. At the moment, MATIC has secured $1.14 as its local support line. If the altcoin falls below the $1.14 mark, then MATIC will fall into the clutches of the bears, making recovery tougher for the altcoin.
With Bitcoin losing value further over the last 24 hours and moving closer to the $23,000 price mark, other altcoins have also been losing value considerably. Broader market strength remains imperative for the altcoin to be able to breach its immediate price ceiling.
