Solana often dubbed an “Ethereum killer”, is a blockchain platform capable of supporting Defi, NFT, and several other projects. It’s token – SOL – has had a great run going from under $25 in July to over $172 as of today morning, a near 7x in less than 2 months.
SOL broke its $150 resistance with considerable volumes, decisively flipping it to support its backtest. While its RSI is fairly bullish with levels of over 55, it is also overbought, hovering above 80 for several days now.
As SOL continues to form higher lows, it is difficult to call its top with conviction. However, with its MACD indicating that bullishness may be past its peak and subsequent support levels at $150 and $125, SOL may offer opportunities to buy on dips while it continues its further uptrend in the coming days or weeks.
Its 20-day moving average is currently hovering at $104-110 and is expected to align with its support of $125 in the following days. In case of an extended Bitcoin run towards $58,000, SOL may continue its uptrend after a quick bounce from its $160 local resistance, with $200 potentially on the cards.
Support: $165, $150, $124
Resistance: $182, $200
