New Delhi: The cryptocurrency market was trading in doldrums on Monday. Bitcoin and Ethereum dropped during early hours whereas altcoins fell sharply.

Rising inflation and interest hikes are other looming concerns for the digital market.

Tech View by Proassetz Exchange
Matic reached its pinnacle in the last week of December 2021 when a price of $2.876 was recorded on the daily timeframe. Since then it has lost nearly 50% of its value in the past three and half months. Trends have been downward with clear formation of lower tops, intermittently paused by dead cat rallies.

Chart-MATICET CONTRIBUTORS
As of now, we identify two major resistance areas for Matic at $1.48 and $1.52 levels. There is a significant possibility that the March low of $1.34 levels could be revisited in near future and hence selling on rise with the above mentioned resistances as stop loss could be strategized for the coming week.
