Solana Price Prediction – Upward Trendline Support at $68.45

Solana price prediction remains neutral. However, the odds of a bullish trend continuation will prevail as long as the SOL/USD is above the $68.45 support level.

On the 3-hour timeframe, the SOL/USD pair is forming Doji and spinning top candles that demonstrate indecision among investors. The upward trendline on the 3-hour timeframe and the 50 day EMA (exponential moving average – red line) support a bullish trend.

On the other hand, the oscillator indicator Stoashtic RSI is signaling a selling bias among investors. Therefore, the breakout of support or immediate resistance levels will determine further trends in Solana.

On the bearish side, a breakout of the 68.45 support level could open additional room for selling until the 60.43 level. At the same time, the SOL/USD pair can bounce off until the resistance level of 80 if it survives over 68.45.

Therefore, the Forex trading market participants should look for a buy trade above the $68.45 level. The initial target remains at $76 and $80. Alternatively, sell-stop can be placed at $68 to capture selling until 60.40.

All the best.
