Biggest Movers: MATIC Retreats From 12-Week High on Monday

Polygon retreated from a multi-month high to start the week, as traders moved in to secure recent gains. Chainlink also moved lower, as prices were unable to break out of a key resistance level. Market sentiment in cryptocurrencies shifted today, with the global market cap trading 2.11% lower as of writing.

Polygon (MATIC)

Polygon (MATIC) was one of Monday’s most notable movers, with prices retreating from recent gains.

MATIC/USD slipped to an intraday bottom of $1.11 to start the week, less than 24 hours after rising to a high at $1.19 on Sunday.

Sunday’s move pushed polygon to its strongest point since November 8, as prices neared a ceiling of $1.20.

Looking at the chart, the decline in MATIC commenced following a failed breakout of a ceiling on the relative strength index (RSI).

As of writing, the index is tracking at 62.98, after failing to move beyond a resistance level of 73.00

Price strength now seems to be looking for a floor, with a target of 60.00 a possible destination for sellers.

Chainlink (LINK)

Chainlink (LINK) was also lower to start the week, as the token was unable to move beyond a key price ceiling over the weekend.

Following a high of $7.45 on Sunday, LINK/USD declined to a low of $6.98 earlier in the day.

Like with polygon, today’s decline in chainlink came after a failed breakout of the resistance level at $7.50.

As of writing, LINK is back above $7.00, as earlier declines have somewhat eased. This comes as the RSI moves closer to a point of support.

The index is currently tracking at 56.06, with a floor of 55.00 the next visible target for bears.

Bulls are likely still present, however, and could look to make a move above $7.50 in the coming days.
