The selling pressure was expected given that SOL had been on a bullish rally since the second week of June. Moreover, the recent profit-taking came after the price fell into overbought territory. SOL’s Relative Strength Index (RSI) confirmed outflows since mid-July.

SOL holders and aficionados should note that the cryptocurrency maintained healthy relative strength despite the profit-taking. This could be a sign that most SOL holders have a long-term focus. Some on-chain data cooperated with this observation.

For example, SOL’s weighted sentiment remained upside despite selling pressure.
