The 4-hour charts also showed that a move downward was likely, as the bulls were unable to hold on to the $0.62 support level.
Bitcoin traded at $27.8k at the time of writing, but it looked ripe for a retracement in the coming days. MANA would also likely head southward in such a scenario, and buyers must be cautious.
The bulls ceded control of $0.62 support and bears have forced prices lower
The $0.623 level of support was lost on 20 March and with that, the market structure also shifted bearish on the 4-hour chart. The OBV has been in decline over the past week and signified strong selling pressure.
The RSI was at 42 and denoted bearish momentum for MANA. It has been below the neutral 50 mark since 20 March, once more underlining the shift in momentum on that day.
Even though the recovery from $0.5 reached $0.677 within a week from 11 to 18 March, the price has steadily declined from $0.8 since early February.
The 1-day timeframe chart also showed that the structure was bearish. It indicated the possibility of a pullback to $0.42, and possibly as deep as $0.29-$0.33.
These were the two regions that had been important back in January, before the strong pump reached $0.84 on 2 February.

The lower timeframe bias was bearish due to the H4 market structure and the $0.623 level needs to be flipped to support before MANA bulls can entertain any hope.
