Can the uptrend control the downtrend?
After the mid-February rally that saw MATIC rise 34% from $1.1611 to $1.5567, the subsequent correction sent MATIC down 20%, erasing more than three-quarters of its previous gains.
The relative strength index (RSI) was below 50, indicating a bearish structure. If it crosses below the bullish line, the momentum could also shift to the downside. Additionally, Chaikin Money Flow (CMF) headed south and crossed below the zero line, reinforcing bearish leverage in the market.
As a result, bears may continue to undervalue MATIC below the uptrend line. Short sellers could take advantage of additional shorting opportunities at the 100-period exponential moving average (EMA) of $1.1796. The 200 period EMA of $1.0640 could check an extended decline.
Alternatively, long-term bulls may target $1.3534 or the resistance zone above $1.5, but this move can only be made if the uptrend line stops the dive.

Open interest declined but showed signs of turning around at press time
However, OI rose at press time, forming a divergence with price, which could indicate a possible price reversal. This development may give bulls hope for solid ground at the upside of $1.25. However, bulls should wait for a retest of the uptrend line and confirmation of an uptrend before entering long positions.
In conclusion, MATIC’s fate hangs in the balance as it falls to its multi-week uptrend line. While bulls may find hope in the bullish divergence between open rates and prices, bears still have the upper hand, with the RSI and CMF indicating a bearish market structure.
