Solana [SOL] also reversed its drop to $16, and bulls pushed it back above $20.5.

The smart contract count and development activity were on the rise in March, which boded well for longer-term investors. Can the asset rise to the $26.6 range high once more?
A dip into the imbalance could offer bulls a chance to re-enter
On the four-hour chart, two lower highs were marked in blue. Both of these lower highs have been beaten within the past ten days. The lower LH would be a more aggressive reading of the structure, and the upper LH would be a more conservative method.
Combined with the series of higher lows Solana has posted, the market structure was firmly bullish. Moreover, the price has also climbed back within the $20.5-$26.6 range. The price had traded within this range from mid-January to early March.
In the past two days, a move upward past $21 left an imbalance on the charts. This fair value gap was highlighted in white and lies close to the range lows. Therefore, a price move to the $20.5-$21 region could offer a buying opportunity targeting the mid-range resistance level at $23.5.
