Solana technical analysis: weekly chart
SOL’s price is in an uptrend. The recent correction in the SOL/USD pair found support in the zone between the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement level of $206.12 and the 50% retracement level of $192.66.
The strong rebound off the support zone indicates that sentiment remains positive and traders are buying on dips.
However, it is not all clear for the bulls. The relative strength index (RSI) is showing a negative divergence, indicating that the bullish momentum may be weakening.
If the price turns down and breaks below the support zone, the selling could intensify and the pair may start its downward journey to $174 and later to $135.64.
This negative view will invalidate if the bulls push and sustain the price above $250. Such a move could open the doors for a possible rally to $314.04.
Solana technical analysis: daily chart
SOL’s price has been trading inside an ascending channel pattern for the past few weeks. The bulls pushed the price above the channel in early November but could not sustain the higher levels.
The price dropped to the support line of the channel where the buyers again stepped in and bought the dip. This indicates aggressive defence of the support line by the bulls and equal aggression by the bears in defending the resistance line.
If buyers drive the price above the centreline of the channel, the bullish momentum could pick up and the pair may rise to the resistance line. This level may again act as a stiff hurdle because the bears are likely to defend it with vigour.
If the price turns down from the resistance line, the pair will extend its stay inside the channel. Alternatively, a break and close above the channel could signal a pick-up in momentum.
On the downside, the bears will have to sink and sustain the price below the channel to indicate a trend change. The selling could intensify on a break and close below $180.
Solana: Buy or sell at current levels?
Solana’s price analysis shows that it is trading inside an ascending channel pattern. If bulls drive the price above $231, the pair could rise to $241.59 and then challenge the all-time high. Contrary to this assumption, a break and close below the support line of the channel will indicate the start of a deeper correction.
