The Solana price has experienced a significant uptrend in recent days, with SOL rising by almost 6% over the past week. However, in the last 24 hours, the altcoin has shown signs of consolidation. Continued consolidation could potentially cause it to lose its bullish momentum if it continues.
The technical outlook for Solana indicates that both bulls and bears are evenly matched due to the sideways movement on the daily chart. While buying strength has recovered, sellers still have the upper hand.
The demand for SOL must increase in the immediate trading sessions, or accumulation may decline. Despite the indicators not fully favouring the bulls, SOL has the potential to rise above its immediate trading sessions if it remains above local support.
The SOL bulls must overcome two critical resistance levels for the price to continue rising. Broader market strength is also crucial for the asset. The market capitalization has also seen an uptick, indicating the presence of buyers in the market.
