Open Interest soars alongside price as bulls seize the initiative
The Open Interest saw a strong surge as the price broke past the $1.26 resistance. This signaled capital flow into the market and bullishly positioned market participants. The spot CVD, which had trended downward from 2 February, remained flat in the past couple of days.
Taken together, the lack of an uptick on the spot CVD front was slightly concerning. This was outweighed by the bullish sentiment seen on the OI and the price chart indicators.
Over the next two weeks, it is possible that MATIC forms another range and retests the lows before another move upward. $1.49 and $1.7 are resistance levels to watch out for.
