negative relationship in regression

#1
hi, if I hypothesized there is a negative relationship between a IV and DV, whether the P value should be greater than 0.05?

Less is more. Stay pure. Stay poor.

Depends on the level of significance stated a priori.

But the response you are likely looking for is that a "significant" effect either positive or negative and given a 0.05 cutoff should be smaller.
