Crypto analyst Ali believes Polygon might soon see a major price move. Ali notes that "it looks like MATIC is heading to $1.19 - $1.29."
He says the aforementioned range represents the most important supply wall ahead, as 30,000 addresses bought 1.15 billion MATIC around this price level, per IntoTheBlock data.
It looks like #MATIC is heading to $1.19 - $1.29. Notice that this is the most important supply wall ahead of #Polygon, as 30K addresses bought 1.15B $MATIC around this price level.— Ali (@ali_charts) April 18, 2023

Ali adds that a sustained daily close above this resistance level ($1.19 to $1.29) could trigger a breakout to $1.80.
Polygon rose above the key daily MA 50 at $1.13 for the first time in weeks. Notably, this key barrier has hampered its advance since the start of March.
Since April 14, MATIC has sustained above this key barrier, trading marginally up at $1.18. A further sustained increase above this level and even to the $1.29 level might be needed for Polygon's MATIC to trend higher, according to Ali.
On the other hand, MATIC might find strong support near the $0.9-$1 range, which could fend off new lows for the crypto asset in case of a decline.
Ali observed earlier that around 52,410 addresses acquired 4.81 billion MATIC in this range.
So far this year, Polygon has increased by 54.36%. The ninth largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization looks set to increase these gains if the technical factors cited above align. Likewise, the general market trend might also dictate the next move for MATIC's price.
