Solana (SOL) has led most altcoins into gains over the last few days. SOL had in fact surged impressively, at one-point crossing over $140. But the coin failed to climb past a crucial; resistance zone. As a result, the bullish uptrend we saw is now reversing. Here are some highlights:
After surging above $140, SOL has faced major resistance around $144 and has since failed to cross that hurdle.
As a result, the altcoin has fallen sharply from these highs in fact, at press time, it was trading at $112.
We are however seeing some directionless consolidation at $110 and we expect SOL to retest $144 soon.

Solana (SOL) – Will it surge back to $135?
Well, technical indicators appear to suggest that SOL is looking poised for another uptrend. After surging to well over $140 over the last few days, the altcoin failed to clear the crucial resistance zone of $144.
This weakness has manifested in the price action, with SOL now falling to $112. But we expect bulls to pick it up from here. In fact, SOL is likely to retest its weekly resistance zone of $135 and even surge past that towards $140.
This will represent an upswing of nearly 20% from its current price. However, if SOL fails to hold the $110 support level, it could fall further towards $101 and eventually $93 in the near term.
