Solana’s price had enjoyed a free downfall since 3 December, losing nearly 39% to explore the $149.173 range low. The emerging bulling engulfing V-shaped pattern in SOL’s daily chart suggests a possible upsurge to $244. While publishing this content, SOL exchanges its price actions near $178.
SOL V-Shaped Recovery Eyes 38% Price Climb
Solana price had formed a V-shaped pattern on the daily price chart, suggesting a sharp upswing. A V-shaped emerges when crypto declines considerably and registers a steady rise.
However, SOL might not witness a complete V-Shaped recovery as it has consolidated under the 100-day SMA since 16 December. Nevertheless, the technical picture shows that the SOL price might continue the upward journey gradually, completing a V-shaped price recovery.
If Solana breaks past the 100-day Simple Moving Average of $185, it might climb, tagging the 2 December range high near $244. That represented a 38% upswing from Solana’s current price. However, bulls will have to overcome several obstacles to attain the rally. Solana’s crucial resistances stand at the 200 psychological mark, 50-SMA near 208, and a massive hurdle at $221.
The MACD confirms the bullish outlook while flashing a buy signal. That happened when the 12-day EMA crossed beyond the 26-day Exponential Moving Average early on 18 December. Nevertheless, the MACD has to cross the zero line towards the positive territory for the bullish strength to gain increased traction.

Also, the Relative Strength Index illustrates the bullish momentum strength as the indicator swayed away from oversold territories. A break past the midline will trigger more buy orders expected to push SOL price high to the prevailing chart pattern’s target before overbought conditions emerge.
Meanwhile, a daily close under the closest support near $173 might catalyze intensified sell order, catalyzing another downswing. If that occurs, SOL price might retest the $161 support and 13 December range low of $149.
For now, SOL bulls seem prepared to launch a 38% rally towards $244. Also, the crypto space noted uptrends early today as Bitcoin moved past the $48K mark, trading at $48,768 at this publication. Solana will attain its enthusiastic target with fewer hurdles if markets maintain a bullish outlook.
