The shares of Marvell Technology Inc (NASDAQ:MRVL) are pulling back today, last seen down 4.1% at $57.36, amid rising bond yields that have led to a tech selloff. The equity has been tearing up the charts recently, though, and just last week attempted to surge beyond its Aug. 26, all-time high of $64.07. Boasting a 44.3% year-over-year lead, there is plenty of reason to believe MRVL could bounce back from its recent trough in the near future, as its latest pullback has placed the security near a trendline with historically bullish implications. 

Specifically, Marvell Technology stock just came within one standard deviation of its 80-day moving average, after staying well above this trendline since June. According to data from Schaeffer's Senior Quantitative Analyst Rocky White, at least seven similar signals have occurred in the past three years. The equity enjoyed a positive return one month later in 86% of those cases, averaging a 7.5% gain. From its current perch, a similar move would put MRVL back over the $61 mark -- much closer to its record peak.

An unwinding of pessimism in  the options pits could push Marvell Technologies stock even higher. This is per the security's Schaeffer's put/call open interest ratio (SOIR) of 1.04, which sits in the 94th percentile of its annual range, indicating short-term options traders have been more put-biased than usual. 

What's more, MRVL boasts attractively priced premiums at the moment. The equity's Schaeffer's Volatility Index (SVI) of 34% stands higher than just 21% of readings from the last 12 months, indicating the options market is pricing in low volatility expectations for the equity right now.
