The overall market price action is still bearish over the past weeks as a retracement of over 50 percent was seen over the past weeks from the previous high of $2.40. Support was established around $1.20 earlier this week, indicating that we could see a reversal forming.

What followed was a rally to the $1.70 mark, which further indicated that bulls are looking to regain control. From there, a several-day retracement resulted in support found at the $1.30 mark. 

Since a higher low was set, we can expect MATIC/USD to start heading higher next week, with the $2 mark as the next resistance target. Once the target is reached, the overall Polygon price action structure would turn very bullish again.

Polygon Price Analysis: Conclusion 

Polygon price analysis is bullish as the market has retraced over the past few days and found support at the $1.30 mark. Therefore, we expect MATIC/USD to start pushing higher early next week to reach the next price target at $2.
