After the crypto market crash in the first half of June 2022, the price of Solana (SOL) has been highly volatile. Fortunately, SOL has seen a massive recovery that succeeded in pushing the price of the crypto higher.
However, the upward momentum for SOL has reached a hurdle in its road that seems to be preventing it from moving even higher.
Between June 18 and 24, SOL saw an astounding 60% rally that set a swing high at $42.89. But, as mentioned above, this upward move was capped due to the presence of the 8-day Exponential Moving Average (EMA).
This then led to the price of SOL dropping by nearly 28% to sweep below the $31.66 support level. Bulls were successful in triggering a 28% leg-up, but once again, the price faces the 8-day EMA at $28.51.
If this trend continues, it could lead to the SOL price revisiting the $31.66 support floor. On the other hand, if SOL is able to stay above this point, there is still hope for a comeback. If SOL breaks below this point, it could lead to a 22% crash.
Things might not look optimistic for SOL at the moment, but if the bullish momentum continues to rise, there is a very good chance that SOL could produce a four-hour candlestick close above the $38.51 and flip the 8-day EMA into a support level.
A move like this will invalidate the bearish thesis for SOL and could lead to a run-up to $47.43.
According to CoinMarketCap, SOL is currently trading at $37.29 after a 3.34% drop in price over the last day.
