MATIC, LINK post recoveries: Is this the reason why?

MATIC and LINK have fallen below their supports, but could recent accumulation help the price trend upward again? 

Over the past few days, an accumulation of more than $3 million worth of MATIC and LINK tokens has taken place. Both MATIC and LINK have witnessed an increase in their values within the last 24 hours.

According to data from Lookonchain, on December 20th, newly created wallets withdrew 24,860 Chainlink (LINK) tokens valued at $3.5 million and 5 million Polygon (MATIC) tokens valued at $3.13 million from the Binance (BNB) exchange.

To assess the significance of this recent accumulation, it's important to compare it with the current exchange flow of these assets.

Divergent Accumulation Patterns Observed for Polygon and Chainlink

Following the aforementioned report, FoxCryptoNews conducted an analysis on CryptoQuant for Polygon's exchange flow, revealing that the recent accumulation by the new wallet did not offset the substantial inflow of tokens.

As of the latest update, MATIC's exchange flow remained in positive territory, reaching its highest point in recent days at 15.4 million. This indicates a notable influx of MATIC tokens into exchanges, surpassing the volume being accumulated.

On the other hand, Chainlink demonstrated an accumulation pattern discerned from its exchange flow. The chart displayed a consistent trend of outflows over the past few days, as evidenced by the negative exchange netflow.

As of the time of writing, the NetFlow stood at approximately -411,565. This prevailing trend indicated that holders were opting to retain their positions rather than selling.

At the time of writing, Polygon was experiencing a 1.8% increase in value, trading at approximately $0.7.
