Nonetheless, technical analysts anticipate that MATIC is strong in the higher time frames. Analyst @Moneytaur_ believes the $0.55 price range is a higher time frame (HTF) buy opportunity.

“HTF structure isn’t broken yet, so it’s a level to consider for later (set alerts near & chill) rather than short-term unless BTC closes HTF <  level, which would increase the probability for $0,55 on MATIC quite a bit,” elaborated @Moneytaur_.”

In conclusion, MATIC transfers to exchanges from Celsius entity wallets may increase selling pressure. Meanwhile, concerns over Polygon Foundation’s token allocation persist. Analysts cautiously eye $0.55 for a potential MATIC buying opportunity amidst ongoing market intricacies.
