Today marked an exciting day for crypto traders, as both Avalanche (AVAX) and Polygon (MATIC) soared to new heights on the charts. AVAX, the native token of the Avalanche network, rose to a multi-month high on Tuesday, after reports that the number of Bitcoin on its network had risen to 5,493. This news saw the token surge by nearly 5%, with prices reaching an intraday peak of $18.86. This marked the third consecutive session of gains for Avalanche, as the token broke out of a ceiling at the $18.50 mark. The 14-day relative strength index (RSI) also neared a resistance level of its own at 72.00, with the index now tracking at 71.11, with earlier gains fading, resulting in AVAX currently trading at $18.22.
Meanwhile, Polygon also moved higher on Tuesday, hitting a one-week high. MATIC/USD raced to a peak of $1.04 earlier in the day, less than a day after hitting a low of $0.9849. This move saw polygon reach its highest level since last week Monday, when price was last close to a resistance of $1.05. However, momentum was not strong enough to force a breakout, with prices now trading at $1.00, which is also its long-term support point. The RSI for polygon seems to be a fair distance away from its floor at 61.00, and is currently tracking at 63.27, with a ceiling of 77.00.
Overall, both tokens have seen their respective RSI levels remain away from their respective floors, indicating that there is still room for further gains in the near-term. With that said, traders remain cautious as to whether today’s gains can be sustained, and will be closely monitoring the charts for further developments.
