Solana (SOL) has been one of the top performing major cryptocurrencies this week, rallying 27% which makes it a top gainer among top20 coins.
SOL hit a high of $27 on Thursday, its highest level since July this year. The only other time SOL was above $27 in 2023 was in mid-July after a positive SEC ruling against Ripple. This latest surge marks a return to yearly highs for the token.
The rally comes after SOL broke out of a falling wedge pattern on the daily chart. This bullish breakout triggered a move towards the next target resistance zone between $25-30.
According to technical analysis, SOL’s trend has now inflected to an uptrend on both the short-term and medium-term timeframes. Momentum indicators like the MACD and RSI are also signaling bullish conditions, with the MACD line moving above the signal line and RSI surpassing 55.

If SOL can break above the $27-30 zone, it could open the door for further upside towards the next resistance around $38. However, the token is now getting overbought after the latest surge, so a pullback or consolidation around $25-27 would also be likely.
SOL found support around the $22 level and 200-day moving average last week. This area around $22 could now act as a new floor and potential buy zone if SOL corrects lower.
Overall, SOL’s return to yearly highs and bullish technical picture indicates the medium-term trend is now up. If Bitcoin and the overall crypto market see continued strength, SOL looks poised to make a run back towards its all-time high around $60 in the coming weeks.
