Current Technicals Bearish For MATIC
The breach started on July 13 and registered a peak high of $0.97 as seen on July 18. But, the bulls weren’t able to hold on to their gains and dropped miserably. The daily chart showing two red consecutive candlesticks implies that the bears will not go up anytime soon.
Meanwhile, a breach below the $0.70 mark confirms MATIC’s dominance and that the next support is at the $0.60 mark. The current RSI is showing bearish momentum now at 50 or falls below the average line. More so, the MACD bullish indicator is also showing signs of a slowdown.
On two separate hourly time frames, Polygon was caught to be heading for a bull run in the short term. The price was captured to be going towards the descending route. It also formed the Flag & Pole pattern which is bullish and has the support level held close at 50%.
Once the current support at $0.7495 is breached, then a decline may be apparent at $0.6895.
On the other hand, if buying pressure mounts from the lower level, a surge that shoots towards the $0.8155 and $0.905 levels can be expected.

Polygon Rolls Out ZKEVM
Polygon is popular for its remarkable improvements in terms of speed and affordability. Its efforts have been in tune with scaling ETH since the day of its launch. However, Polygon has faced enormous challenges such as when ZK rolled up its smart contracts which have restricted users as the contracts are said to be costly, incompatible, and sluggish.
But, Polygon decided to improve and resolve issues with the rollout of ZKEVM. Polygon created ZKEVM to be compatible with ETH. Now, developers can build on ZKEVM similar to Ethereum. In effect, any ETH smart contact or tool which works well with Ethereum can work too with Polygon ZKEVM. With that in mind, the ETH network can be easily leveraged to take advantage of the enhanced speed and reduced costs.
