Fibonacci retracement levels (yellow) were plotted between the recent high of $32 and the mid-June swing low of $12.8. At the time of writing, Solana price action had retreated to the $24 level. Based on the Fib tool, the 50% Fib level at $22.5 was the next major support level after the $24.

In addition, the 50% Fib level also coincided with the June highs; therefore bulls are expected to defend defenses in the area if the retreat is lower. If the decline eases into the $22.5 – $24 area, bulls can target again at $30, but they will have to get around the $26.5 hurdle to move forward.

But the drop below the 50% Fib level will further weaken SOL’s market. Such extended bearish overdrive could lead SOL to retest the $20 psychological barrier, especially if BTC takes huge losses after the Fed decision.

Meanwhile, the Relative Strength Index and On Balance Volume fell lower, suggesting a decline in buying pressure and demand over the past few days.

Between mid-July and the time of writing, SOL’s OI fell from >$400 million to less than $350 million, highlighting declining demand for SOL in the futures market prior to the Fed decision.

So there could be a further pullback, and the $24 could break, forcing the bulls to regroup at the June high and the 50% Fib level of $22.5.
