Losing ground around the pivot area will see Solana exploring the initial massive support at $101.5. SOL should keep the sub-$100 level away, excluding continued sell-off. Meanwhile, the second dependable support barrier will showcase at $95.9.
The 4hr candle chart and EMAs display a bullish sign. For now, Solana stays beyond the 50-day exponential moving average at $97.32. Today’s early sessions saw 50-dayEMA pulling away from 200-dayEMA. Also, the 100-day converged on 200-dayEMA. An optimistic cross by 100-dayEMA through 200-dayEMA would see SOL at $115. Solana should steer well of sub-$100 and 50-dayEMA for a move to $120.
