Solana [SOL] saw a large influx of buyers over the past five days. The price was at $22.6 on 7 August and saw a rally, trading at $24.8 at press time. The price action showed that further gains were likely, although a significant obstacle sat in the $25.5-$25.7 area.

It is likely that SOL would breach this resistance, especially if Bitcoin [BTC] does not fall below $29.2k. From a higher timeframe point of view, Solana remains firmly bullish, and its strong bounce from just above the $22-level seems to indicate enthusiastic buyers.
Ascending triangle pattern showed a move to $25.7 is likelyThe green line at $23.5 outlined the bullish market structure break Solana saw on the price chart last week. The structure remained bullish and SOL formed a series of higher lows over the past five days. The recent price action saw an ascending triangle pattern (orange) develop.
Combined with the bullish structure, it highlighted that buyers were heavily favoured and another move north is imminent. The OBV seemed to be surging higher, underlining significant demand and reinforcing the idea of further gains for SOL.
The RSI signalled that bullish momentum held sway. The trading volume declined during the time SOL was within the triangle pattern. While an upward breakout was the expectation, a bearish move cannot be discounted. However, the evidence at hand supported the bulls.

A SOL move below $24.15 would shift the market structure bearish and invalidate the idea laid out here. To the north, the local high at $25.68 remains a valid target.
Moreover, there is a bearish order block (cyan) around the $26-region from 21 July. Ergo, it is possible that Solana bulls might not break out past this zone on their first try.
