MATIC’s January rally slowed to two weeks for a price consolation range of $0.9283 – $1.033. But the break above the range saw MATIC reach the upside target of $1.1252.

The previous target became an immediate support level. If the $1.1252 support level holds steady over the next few days, MATIC could target its November high of $1,300, a possible 15% rally.

The Relative Strength Index (RSI) on the 12-hour chart was 66, indicating a bullish MATIC. Therefore, the above bullish bias could be likely in the coming days.

But a drop below the support of $1.1252 would invalidate the bias. However, the bulls could find another stable level at $1.0733 in case of a downtrend.

According to Santiment data, there were a handful of whale transaction counts above $100K at press time. The historical pattern showed that some whale movements were associated with price increases. As such, we could expect another price rally.

Additionally, long-term holders took profit, especially after Thursday’s bullish breakout of the price consolidation range. The above position is based on the 90-MVRV (Market Value to Realized Value) increase.

In particular, the period of price consolidation saw MVRV rest at the neutral line and even fall to the negative side, showing that holders saw losses during the period. A further rally could see holders pocket more profit.

However, the price/open interest divergence at press time, as Coinglass indicates, could delay a strong momentum in the short term. It shows that money left the MATIC futures market despite rising prices.
