On the downside, MATIC has established clear support around the $0.57 and $0.61 marks. These support levels are areas where buyers have historically stepped in, preventing further declines.

The RSI has fluctuated around the 50 mark, indicating a balance between buying and selling pressures.

However, it hasn’t ventured into overbought territory (above 70), which aligns with the lack of sustained upward momentum in the price.

The Ichimoku cloud, visible on the chart, suggested a bearish outlook as the price moved beneath the cloud at press time.

The chart above revealed a series of lower highs and lower lows, a classic indication of a bearish trend.
