After ending November with a very strong rally and setting a higher high at  $243, the Solana price action saw a sharp reversal at the beginning of December.

By the start of last weekend, SOL/USD had dropped a little over 30 percent as it spiked to $170  for a brief moment. Quick reaction to $210 followed, with the follow-up push lower setting higher low at $176.

Since then, the Solana price has established an increasingly tighter trading range, indicating a base could be forming for a much more serious reversal later this month. Therefore, we expect the current push lower to set another higher low over the next 24 hours. From there, we could see a higher high finally set.

Solana Price Analysis: Conclusion 

Solana price analysis is bearish today as we saw a strong decline over the past hours after another lower high set at $196. Likely bears are looking to set another higher low, leading ETH/USD to continue the current week-long consolidation.
