SOL price recap

Solana’s native cryptocurrency SOL’s price action indicated selling pressure took off some of the recent gains. It exchanged hands at $25.46 at press time, which represents a 21% pullback from its highest price point in the last four weeks.

The selling pressure was expected considering that SOL had been on a bullish uptick since the second week of June. In addition, the recent profit-taking occurred after the price dipped into overbought territory. SOL’s Relative Strength Index (RSI) confirmed that there have been outflows since mid-July.

SOL holders and enthusiasts should note that the cryptocurrency maintained healthy relative strength despite the profit-taking. This could be a sign that most SOL holders have a long-term focus. Some on-chain data collaborated with this observation.

For example, SOL’s weighted sentiment maintained an upward trajectory despite the selling pressure.
