However, despite the massive price pump, sentiments around BONK remained bearish, which was evident from a look at the token’s weighted sentiments. Nonetheless, BONK kept its volume up, which is typically a positive signal for a token.
BONK’s achievements are not enough for SOL
Though BONK was a top performer, its achievements might not be enough to fuel Solana network’s growth as the blockchain’s on-chain metrics looked concerning. For instance, SOL’s latest price decline was accompanied by a hike in volume, which was bearish.
Positive sentiments around SOL have also witnessed a drop lately, suggesting less confidence among investors in the token. However, SOL’s funding rate and development activity were up, which by and large was optimistic for the blockchain.

Bears to dominate the market
SOL’s daily chart also gave a bearish notion, as most of the market indicators favored the bears and suggested a further price drop in the coming days. For instance, SOL’s Relative Strength Index (RSI) registered a slight downtick and was resting near the neutral mark, which is a bearish signal.
The Chaikin Money Flow (CMF) followed a similar trend and went down, further increasing the chances of a continued downtrend. Nonetheless, the MACD displayed a bullish crossover, suggesting a price uptick. SOL’s Exponential Moving Average (EMA) Ribbon also showed that the bulls can overtake the bears, which gave hope for a trend reversal in the days to follow.
