The continued strength from MATIC has the altcoin’s momentum turning up yet again on the daily, strengthening on weekly timeframes, and only three days away from the 2-week timeframe crossing bullish.

MATIC Gives Golden Cross Signal On Daily

Technical indicators on the daily chart exhibit strength relative to the rest of the crypto market. For example, price is above the mid-Bollinger Band and tagging the upper band; it is well above the Ichimoku cloud, the tenkan-sen and kijun-sen; it has struck the Parabolic SAR; and pushed above the 50, 100, and 200-day moving averages.

Most importantly, there is a golden cross on the daily. The last time there was a daily golden cross on MATICUSD, the cryptocurrency rallied by more than 13,000%.

Elliott Wave Theory Hints At Coming Polygon Rally

Low timeframe Elliott Wave Theory counting could suggest that MATIC has finished its wave 1 impulse and possibly a wave 2 correction, before it begins a larger move higher for a wave 3, 4, and 5. Adding in a channel shows that if this is the start of wave 3 of 5, the end of the 5th wave could terminate at the mid-point of the channel.

The channel appears valid throughout a series of different timeframes. On monthly timeframes, turning on the Fisher Transform shows a bullish crossover in the months past that could begin to pick up steam.

Altcoin Could Dominate Bitcoin And Ethereum

Although the MATICUSD pair looks strong, MATIC versus BTC looks even better, and is close to setting new all-time highs. 

Even the MATIC versus Ethereum pair suggests that MATIC will outperform both Ether and Bitcoin in the months ahead, with the only thing holding it back is this current level.
