Solana price has seen strong bearish momentum so far in December. After setting a strong higher high at $243 on the 2nd of December, a strong spike lower followed last Friday.

SOL/USD found support at $170, with consolidation in an increasingly tighter range seen for the following week. Break lower followed on Thursday, opening up the way for another selloff, leading SOL back to the $170 previous low.

Since then, we have seen the Solana price move sideways around the $170 mark, with bulls failing to regain momentum. Therefore, SOL/USD likely prepares for another push lower next week, with the next major support as far as the $150 mark.

Solana Price Analysis: Conclusion 

Solana price analysis is bearish today as we expect the current consolidation to end with a break lower later today. Considering the overall market structure, bears should take over the momentum once again after bulls failed to move the market higher over the weekend.
