Solana has been on an unstoppable rally over the last weekend with the SOL price reaching closer to $25. At press time, the Solana price is up by another 15% in the last 24 hours trading at $24.30 levels. With the recent price rally, Solana has toppled Dogecoin and Cardano to become the seventh-largest cryptocurrency by market cap.
Let’s take a look at some of the key levels to watch for Solana going ahead, based on the technical chart indicators. SOL exhibited a steady ascent, surpassing the $23.20 resistance and outperforming Bitcoin and Ethereum with a remarkable 15% increase. It approached a critical test at the $24.50 resistance, reaching a high point around $24.47 before entering a consolidation phase. SOL price maintains a strong position, well above the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement level derived from the upward swing between the $18.75 low and $24.47 high.
Looking ahead, immediate resistance is situated near $24.50, followed by a more substantial barrier at $25.00. A decisive breach above the $25 resistance could propel the price toward the $27.20 resistance, with the subsequent key hurdle found near $28.80. Further gains might potentially drive the price to the $30 level.
However, should SOL fail to establish a foothold above $24.50 and $25.00, it may initiate a corrective move. Initial support on the downside resides near the $23.20 level and the associated trendline.
The first major support is approximately at the $21.50 level, which corresponds to the 50% Fibonacci retracement level calculated from the upward movement spanning from the $18.75 low to the $24.47 high. In the event of a close below the $21.50 support, the price could experience a descent towards the $20.50 support level. In such a scenario, there’s a potential risk of further declines toward the $20.00 support level in the near term.
