Besides, the price cleared a key bearish trend line with resistance near $33.10 on the 4-hours chart. The bulls were able to push the price above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the main decline from the $48.42 swing high to $30.00 low.
The price is now consolidating near the $38.50 level and is well above the 50 simple moving average (blue, 4-hours). On the upside, an immediate resistance is near the $39.20 level.
The 50% Fib retracement level of the main decline from the $48.42 swing high to $30.00 low is also near the $39.20 level to act as a barrier. The next major resistance is near the $40 zone. A clear wave above the $40.00 level could start a major rally in the near term.
In the stated case, the price may perhaps rise towards the $50 zone. If there is no push above $39.20 or $40, the price might start a downside correction. An initial support is near the $37.00 level.
The next major support is near $36.20. The main support sits near the 34.20 level and the 50 simple moving average (blue, 4-hours). A close below $34.20 may perhaps start a strong decline. In the stated case, the price might even test the $32 support.
Overall, SOL price is gaining pace above the $35 and $37 levels. If the bulls clear the $40 barrier, the price could drift towards the $50 level. Conversely, there might be a fresh dip towards the $34.20 level.
