Over the previous weeks, the price of Polygon has been steadily declining. After a low of $1.7 was set on the 28th of November, MATIC/USD reversed its retreat gradually.

The second low was around $1.9, resulting in a sluggish slide throughout the first few days of December. After some consolidation on Thursday, MATIC began to move rapidly down again yesterday.

The previous low of $1.7 was swiftly reached and clearly shattered, clearing the path for more selling. Overnight, strong selling pressure persisted, pushing the Polygon price to a new low of $2.1. However, buying pressure has swiftly returned since then, most likely helping MATIC/USD recoup its losses during the weekend.

Polygon Price Analysis: Conclusion 

Today, Polygon price analysis is favorable as we witnessed a significant decline followed by a quick rejection at $2.22. As a result, we anticipate MATIC/USD to recover and approach the previous low of around $2.5 next.
