$MATIC continues to trade sideways but bears still hold sway. Can $MATIC recover and restart a bull rally soon?

September saw a lot of sideways trading in the price of $MATIC displaying a lack of consensus among buyers and sellers. However, this lateral trajectory seems to be heading straight toward a crucial resistance trendline that has held intact since February 2023. The arrival at this crucial turning point can increase selling pressure and $Matic might drop the $0.4 level during the projected decline.

The $MATIC price has had a sharp correction since the past month, falling from a high of $0.89 to its current price of $0.51—a loss of 42%. The coin price displays a downward-sloping resistance trend line while the current market attitude is still ambiguous.

On the daily chart, $MATIC has been forming a string of lower highs under intense bearish pressure. T bearish trendline is currently being contested by vigorous buying demand at the $0.50 price level. The price movement of MATIC, which is now constrained between this trendline and the $0.50 support, points to an impending breakout.

$MATIC is trading at $0.5108 as of 28 Sep, 2023 at the time of writing, representing a slight decrease of 0.96% over the previous 24 hours and forming a bearish candlestick.

$MATIC has a serious risk of seeing its downward trend continue. However, there is some hope because of the strong support at $0.50. The negative trend line or a breakout above this level would indicate a potential entry target for traders.

If there is a bullish breakout, $MATIC may soar toward the $0.74 level. On the other hand, a drop to $0.40 may be approaching if the coin is unable to keep its position above $0.50.
