  • Solana has a strongly bullish outlook on the higher timeframe price charts.

Solana [SOL] has registered strong gains since the fall to $15 in mid-June. Prices climbed as high as $32 on 10 July, although the bulls were unable to hold on to the $30 level thereafter.

The presence of a demand zone just below $22 from the weekly timeframe meant it was a place where a bullish reversal could occur. Bitcoin [BTC] and SOL both have a bearish short-term outlook. Can we see some more losses followed by a rally for Solana?

On the 3-day chart, the price action has a bullish structure. The move past the previous lower high at $22.3 reached $32.13, signaling firm bullish intent. A set of Fibonacci retracement levels (yellow) were plotted based on the move from $12.8 to $32.13.

It showed the 50% and 61.8% retracement levels sat at $22.47 and $20.18 respectively. Moreover, on the weekly timeframe, a bullish breaker block was seen that extended from $20.26 to $22.3. This had confluence with the Fib levels too.

Therefore, buyers can look to bid SOL after the price enters this zone. A lower timeframe bullish market structure break within this zone can give buyers an opportunity. Meanwhile, a move below the $18.32 level would invalidate this idea.

The OBV saw a large uptick in late June and July but has pulled back a bit over the past three weeks. Overall, the buying volume was still dominant. The RSI also showed bullish momentum with a reading of 56.

Data from Coinalyze showed that Open Interest saw a sharp drop on 30 July as the price fell from $25 to $23.5. This suggested bearish sentiment, which was compounded on 31 July when the OI rose alongside falling prices. The spot CVD was also in a downtrend.

The rising OI signaled strong bearishness, and the lack of demand meant Solana prices were headed lower in the near term. This could see SOL drop to the $22 demand zone.
