Solana, an open-source smart contract layer-1 blockchain for dApps, has been in the news for both wrong and right reasons, the latest being the $6 million exploit that has seen over 8,000 Solana wallets compromised so far.

SOL has been trying to reverse the trend since early July and has been rejected at the same level twice.

It forms an ascending triangle formation that signals a bullish reversal. However, recent developments have pushed SOL’s prices into the lower territory of the formation. SOL appears to be losing momentum, with the RSI at a neutral 48.

SOL faces near-term resistance at the 0.382 Fib retracement level of $42. It would need to overcome the long-term resistance at $46-$47 to gather momentum and break out of the ascending triangle pattern. There is less hope for a revival in the near term, as SOL has failed to stay above all key indicators. If SOL continues its descent, $37 will act as the first support. Further downward momentum will bring the previous low of $34 into play.

Great levels

Resistance: $42, $45, $47

Support: $37, $34
