Solana price awaits a signal to restart its ascent
Solana price set up an inverse head-and-shoulders setup between May 15, 2022, and April 11, 2023. This bottom reversal pattern contains three distinctive swing lows. The central valley or trough is named the head, and the troughs on either side of the head are referred to as shoulders. Hence the namesake inverse head-and-shoulders.
Additionally, connecting the peaks of these swing lows shows a declining resistance known as a neckline and serves as a confirmation level for a breakout from this pattern.
Between April 10 and 13, Solana price witnessed a massive spike in buying pressure that resulted in a 22% ascent that breached this setup, providing a confirmation of a breakout. The inverse head-and-shoulder technical formation forecasts a 71.09% upswing to $37.21, obtained by adding the distance between the right shoulder’s peak and the head’s lowest point.
Additionally, due to the ongoing circumstances, SOL has retraced 18% from the local top, providing sidelined buyers an opportunity to accumulate before this uptrend kick-starts.
SOL/USDT 3-day chart
While the outlook for Solana price is extremely bullish, investors need to be careful since Bitcoin price is freefalling. If the BTC selling pressure does not stop, it could be jeopardous for altcoins. In such a case, a three-day candlestick close below $18.68 will invalidate the bullish thesis for SOL.
If the selling pressure on altcoins fails to cease, Solana price could slide 20% to tag the next support level at $14.95.
