Current bearish techniques for MATIC
The breakout started on July 13 and reached a high of $0.97 as seen on July 18. But the bulls were unable to hold their gains and fell miserably. The daily chart showing two consecutive red candlesticks implies that the bears won’t be picking up anytime soon.
Meanwhile, a breach below the $0.70 mark confirms MATIC’s dominance and that the next support is at $0.60. The current RSI is showing bearish momentum now at 50 or falling below the middle line. More so, the bullish MACD indicator is also showing signs of slowing down.
On two separate hourly periods, Polygon was caught heading into a short-term bull run. Price has been captured to move towards the downside path. It also formed the Flag & Pole pattern which is bullish and the support level is held near 50%.
Once the current support at $0.7495 is breached, a decline may be apparent to $0.6895.
On the other hand, if the buying pressure rises from the lower level, a push towards the $0.8155 and $0.905 levels can be expected.

Polygon deploys ZKEVM
Polygon is popular for its remarkable improvements in speed and accessibility. Its efforts have been in sync with the scaling of ETH since launch day. However, Polygon faced some huge challenges, like when ZK implemented its smart contracts that limited users because the contracts would be expensive, incompatible, and slow.
But Polygon decided to improve and solve the problems with the deployment of ZKEVM. Polygon created ZKEVM to be compatible with ETH. Now developers can rely on ZKEVM similar to Ethereum. Indeed, any ETH contact or smart tool that works well with Ethereum can also work with Polygon ZKEVM. With this in mind, the ETH network can be easily exploited to take advantage of the improved speed and lower costs.
