The overall Solana price action trades in a bearish momentum over the past month. Since the last swing high around $44, SOL/USD retraced by more than 55 percent and retested support around the $20 mark. 

From there, SOL moved higher over the past weeks, with the 50-period moving average offering some resistance initially. However, after a brief retracement, SOL/USD pushed higher again and reached the next resistance area around $35.5.

A week-long consolidation followed, with the $32 previous resistance acting as a support and the $35.5 mark acting as a resistance. Therefore, once SOL/USD breaks to either side, we will see where the market is headed over the following weeks as currently, the market could go either way.

If Solana moves above $35.5, we can expect the next resistance around $42-$44 to be tested next. Alternatively, if the $32 support holds, we can expect SOL/USD to move to $26 support and move lower over the following weeks.

Solana Price Analysis: Conclusion 

Solana price analysis is bearish as the market is still not ready to move higher and reversed back to the downside again over the past hours. Therefore, we expect SOL/USD to attempt to break below the $32 mark over the following hours.
