Solana has not recovered the lost ground from its peak despite the bullish momentum seen in other Layer 1 tokens. Still, the technicals forecast that SOL’s trend could soon reverse to the upside.
Solana Prepares to Recover
Solana could finally be ready for an upward move.
The Layer 1 token is currently in a downward spiral, but several technical indicators suggest its trend might be improving.
After declining from its Nov. 6 peak, SOL is almost 70% short of its all-time high. That’s a stark contrast to other Layer 1 tokens such as Terra’s LUNA, which has shaken off rocky market conditions and broke a new all-time high Wednesday. SOL, meanwhile, is lagging. Still, there are a few reasons to believe that Solana’s corrective phase could soon reach exhaustion.
SOL’s price appears to be forming a bullish divergence against the Relative Strength Index on its daily chart. While it continues to make a series of lower lows, the RSI has been making a series of higher highs. Such market behavior indicates rising upward momentum, hinting that a break from oversold territory could be near.
Moreover, the recent downward price action appears to have led to the formation of a falling wedge on Solana’s daily chart. As SOL moves closer to the pattern’s apex, it could be preparing to break through resistance. A decisive close below the wedge’s upper trendline could result in a 34% upswing toward $120.
Given Solana’s poor performance over the past few months, it remains to be seen whether it will be able to gain the strength it needs to breakout. Breaching the $75 support level could show further signs of weakness, encouraging market participants to exit their positions. A spike in sell orders could invalidate the optimistic outlook and result in a steep correction to $54.
