SOL price could see a bullish breakout in the next two weeks
Solana price chart reveals that the altcoin’s price is in a descending channel. SOL price made three attempts to break out of the upper trendline, however, the confirmation needed for a trend reversal is a close above the trendline.
Solana faces two immediate resistances at the 20-day Exponential Moving Average at $12.31 and the 50-day EMA at $12.73. A breakout could imply a run-up to the weekly high of $12.73. If SOL price continues its uptrend, it could hit the bullish target of $31.68.
Invalidation of the bullish thesis could lead to a price drop to the monthly low of $10.94. If Solana price plunges and closes below the lower trendline of the descending channel, SOL is at risk of further price declines.
