MATIC price is trading inside a consolidation phase that could break out shortly.

MATIC price prepares for blastoff

MATIC price rallied nearly 195% from March 5 to March 11, setting up a flagpole. Consolidation in the form of a pennant followed this spike, creating a bull pennant. This continuation pattern forecasts a 65% upswing, determined by measuring the distance between the flagpole’s top and bottom.

The target is obtained by adding this measure to the breakout point at $0.372.

Polygon could either slice the upper trend line of the consolidation right away or retrace toward the lower boundary and follow it up with a spike.

While a breach of the pennant’s upper boundary theoretically signals the start of an upward move, a decisive close above the supply barrier at $0.417 will confirm the upward trajectory to $0.618.

In such a case, MATIC price could rally another 45% to its intended target. Investors also need to pay attention to the resistance level at $0.481. The trapped buyers from the previous bull run could likely start booking profits at the level mentioned above and prematurely end the upswing.

On the flip side, if sellers drive MATIC price to shatter the 50 Simple Moving Average (SMA) at $0.358, a 12% drop to the 100 SMA coinciding with the lower boundary at $0.316 seems plausible.

However, a breakdown of the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement level at $0.2815 will put an end to the bullish thesis.

In such a case, an additional 10% drop to $0.251 could occur.
