Matic itself has been actively moving through the rangebound market as the asset has not managed to break the $2 resistance zone after rapidly dropping from the current all-time high of $2.8. The local bottom was marked at $1.4, which is the zone that correlates with November's price levels.

The market faces a relief rally

Matic is not the only token that faced a local price recovery as the majority of altcoins have gone through a growth phase after Bitcoin managed to move past $44,200. U.Today previously covered that such altcoins as Shiba Inu and Dogecoin ended up as the leaders of the recovery rally.

As of press time, Matic is trading at $1.80, while the market in general is facing a slight correction that caused the token to lose 1.5% of its value in the last 24 hours. As for the first cryptocurrency, Bitcoin is currently consolidating at $44,332 since yesterday.
