Solana (SOL) has reclaimed the $1.35 support area after initially deviating below it. It’s currently making an attempt at breaking out above $2.50.

Technical indicators and the wave count support the possibility of a breakout that could eventually lead Solana to a high near $5.

 

Solana Bounces Above Support

The SOL price has been decreasing since Sept. 1 after reaching a high of $5.10. The downward move continued until a low of $1.22 was reached on Nov. 5. The low served to validate the $1.35 area as support and was the catalyst for an upward move towards the $2.50 resistance area.

However, SOL was rejected and began another downward move that led to a deviation and a retest of the $1.35 area. Currently, SOL is in the process of making another attempt at breaking out above $2.50.

If successful, the next resistance area would be found at $3.55 (0.618 Fib retracement level) and $5.10 — the top of the same move.

Technical indicators are bullish and support the possibility that SOL will break out.

Short-Term SOL Movement

The two-hour chart shows that SOL has been following an ascending support line since Dec. 24. Furthermore, SOL has broken out from a descending resistance line (dashed) and validated it as support after.

These are both bullish signs, suggesting that SOL is likely to continue increasing.

Similar to the daily time-frame, technical indicators are bullish and support the continuation of the upward movement.

The wave count suggests that SOL is in wave 5 of a bullish impulse, which has a target between $3.02-$3.07. The target is found by using a Fib extension on wave 1 (black) and an external retracement on wave 5 (white).

The target between $3.02-$3.07 is also the 0.5 Fib retracement level of the entire downward move, making it likely to act as a top.
