Will the 61.8% Fib level remain steady for bulls?
SOL plummeted by over 15% after hitting the $23.91 price ceiling. But the $20 support prevented further price dump, boosting bulls to attempt a recovery.
Bears thwarted the recovery, and a retracement saw SOL hit the 50% Fib level ($19.95). At press time, bulls had inflicted another recovery attempt and concerted efforts to keep SOL above the 61.8% Fib level ($20.88).
If BTC goes beyond $28K and reclaims the $29K price zone, SOL could defend the 61.8% Fib level ($21) support. SOL could move to retest the 76.8% Fib level ($22.21) or the overhead resistance level of $23.91. A hit on the supply zone of $26 could attract increased selling pressure.
A close below the 61.8% Fib level ($20.88) could also attract another round of selling pressure. But the $20, $19, or $18 support levels could slow the drop. Thus these levels can act as selling targets in the event of a sharp downswing, especially if BTC drops below $28K.
The RSI (Relative Strength Index) and OBV (On Balance Volume) moved sideways at the time of writing, reinforcing the consolidation phase underway at press time. Since it was a weekend, a more definite price direction could be shaped from Monday (April 3).
Shorts dominated longs by a small margin
According to Coinglass, the long/short ratio was slightly skewed towards sellers at press time. It means sellers could potentially breach the 61.8% Fib level and attract even more selling pressure.

Nevertheless, the funding history has been positive for the past few days, denoting the underlying bullish sentiment. Despite the hopes for a further rally, investors should wait and track BTC price action to make better moves.
