  • Solana witnessed a bullish structure on the D1 chart. 
  • The decline in the volume indicators suggested bullish traders can exercise some caution. 

Solana [SOL] saw a decline in certain aspects such as user activity and non-vote transactions on the network. While this decline occurred in Q3, the price of the token appreciated considerably, going from $18 to $32 before retracing a good chunk of those gains.


How much are 1, 10, or 100 SOL worth today?


AMBCrypto noted that SOL was trading at a significant resistance zone at $25, and a flip of this zone to support could see the bulls drive prices to $27. Will SOL traders be forced to endure a period of consolidation, or can prices pump past the resistance quickly?

Solana’s market structure was firmly bullish

The one-day chart reflected the bullish leaning of market participants. The recent higher low was at $20.93 and a move below this would be necessary to shift the structure. Meanwhile, the Fibonacci retracement levels showed that the 78.6% level was nearly tested in mid-September before SOL embarked on its rally to $25.

Together they showed that a continuation of the uptrend was likely. Yet, the volume indicators were in disagreement. The On-Balance Volume (OBV) slowly trended downward since mid-July. It saw a brief uptick in the second half of September but began to descend in October. The Chaikin Money Flow (CMF) was at -0.05 at the time of writing.

Both indicators showed relatively strong selling pressure over the past ten days to two weeks. This was at odds with the price action and the momentum of Solana. A rally not backed by demand would likely result in a sharp rejection at a key higher timeframe resistance level. Would $25 prove to be that level?

The Open Interest chart showed bullish speculators were keen to enter the market

On 18 October Solana prices fell to $23.2 but shot higher on the back of vigorous demand. The spot Cumulative Volume Delta (CVD) surged higher and the Open Interest also leaped northward. The Open Interest (OI) signaled firm bullish intent in the market and the spot CVD backed up the recent rally.

The findings from the spot CVD were in contrast to both the OBV and the CMF. It was unclear where SOL could go next, but traders already in long positions can look to take profits on their positions, at least partially. A breakout past $25.4 and a subsequent retest can be used to go long, targeting $27 and $30.
