Solana[1] registered a series of lower highs over the past two months. The $190-$200 demand area was respected in November and saw a good bounce to $235, but that area has since succumbed to bearish pressure. Solana was at a crossroads once more, with $170 being a strong area of support.

Bitcoin[2] could also see a bounce from the $45.8k area, which would likely have a positive impact on the market. But can the bulls stall the longer-term downtrend? Or will we see SOL trading at $150 or $120 a few months later?

Solana went parabolic in September and kept climbing that way till late October. The swing high (and ATH) at $259.9 and the swing low at $148 were used to plot Fibonacci retracement levels, as well as extension levels.

In the first half of December, SOL formed a rising wedge and ran into the $203 resistance level, which was just above the $190 area (red box) which had acted as supply over the past month. Subsequently, the price broke downwards out of the wedge and was right atop another level of support at $167.
