The 14-day relative strength index (RSI) also moved below a floor of 35.50, and as of writing is tracking at 30.91.

This is the lowest point the index has hit since October 22, with prices hitting a bottom of $0.3100 on that occasion.

Polygon (MATIC)

Polygon (MATIC) was another notable token to fall today, with prices also moving lower for a third straight day.

Following a high of $0.891 on Thursday, MATIC/USD dropped to a bottom of $0.8483 earlier in the day.

MATIC has since rebounded from earlier lows, and is currently trading at $0.8569, which is still nearly 4% lower than Thursday’s floor.

This slight rebound comes as the RSI rejected a breakout of a point of support at the 43.00 level, and the index is currently at the 44.26 mark.

Historically, bulls have used this floor as a point of reentry, and should this reoccur, then we could see MATIC move back towards the $0.90 level.
