The 12-hour chart for MATIC revealed a conservative but sustained bullish approach to the price rebound. After the soft bounce from the $0.5 support, MATIC posted gains of 10.9% between 12 September and 19 September.

A look at the Relative Strength Index (RSI) showed that the buying pressure rose gradually within the period and stood at 58, as of the time of writing. Similarly, the Chaikin Money Flow (CMF) flipped positive with a reading of +0.04.

These signals pointed to growing bullish confidence in the short term. Given the overall bullish sentiment returning to the market, MATIC bulls could seize this opportunity to rally toward the $0.65 to $0.7 price zone.

Market participants in the derivatives market adopted a cautious approach to MATIC’s recent bullish moves. Data from Coinalyze showed that Open Interest continued to dip, despite the decent price gains. This inferred a lack of conviction in MATIC’s price rebound.

However, the Funding Rate has been positive since 14 September and the Spot CVD maintained its uptrend. This hinted at good demand for MATIC, which could be pivotal in buyers mounting a sustained bullish push.
