Solana Price Eyes Recovery


Solana price remained in a short-term bearish zone like Bitcoin and Ethereum. SOL extended losses below the $160 support zone and is now consolidating losses. It is stuck below the $150 level.


There was a minor move above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the $163.25 swing high to the $145.03 low. Solana price is now trading below $155 and the 100-hourly simple moving average. Immediate resistance is near the $150 level.


There is also a connecting bearish trend line forming with resistance at $150 on the hourly chart of the SOL/USD pair. The next major resistance is near the $152.50 level. A successful close above the $152.50 resistance could set the pace for another major increase.

The next key resistance is near $157 or the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the $163.25 swing high to the $145.03 low. Any more gains might send the price toward the $165 level.


More Losses in SOL?


If SOL fails to rally above the $152.50 resistance, it could start another decline. Initial support on the downside is near the $145 level.


The first major support is near the $142 level, below which the price could test $135. If there is a close below the $135 support, the price could decline toward the $120 support in the near term.
