The red box highlighted a bearish order block on the 12-hour chart which was been beaten on January 14. The resulting surge higher left an inefficiency on the charts on the daily timeframe and was highlighted in white.

Solana faced a lower timeframe rejection at the $24.6 mark and fell to the support level at $21.1 before flipping the market structure bullish once more. At the time of writing, the $24.34 level of support was a good risk-to-reward place to bid SOL at. The 61.8% and 78.6% HTF resistance levels at $28.7 and $33.14 can be used to take a profit.

Weighted by Open Interest, the predicted funding rate continued to move in positive territory. This meant long positions paid the short positions, which indicated the futures market had a bullish outlook on the asset.

The Open Interest itself took a sharp hit on January 18 when SOL fell to the $21.1 support. It remained flat for a couple of days and rocketed higher on January 20. The falling OI and the flat prices since then suggested SOL could drop on Monday [23 January] to shake out long positions before driving higher.
