Price has moved below the 9 and 21-day moving averages, but remains in touch with the crucial 50-day exponential moving average (EMA) at $0.89. Furthermore, the 24-hour relative strength index (RSI) shows a distinct decline in market valuation over the past 24-48 hours after falling down to 55.83 from 60.78. Trading volume over the past 24 hours dropped by 5 percent, indicating lower buying at current price. Moreover, the moving average convergence divergence (MACD) curve can be seen forming lower lows to move further below the neutral zone in a bearish divergence.

In conclusion, traders will be looking to wait for MATIC to form an extended consolidation around the $0.88-$0.90 mark to set a bullish challenge to revisit the $0.97 mark. A daily close towards $0.86 support could trigger downtrend to as low as $0.79.
