Solana price saw strong bullish momentum push the price higher for most of the week after support was found around $185 last weekend. However, yesterday, SOL/USD peaked at $244, leading to a drop lower during the second half of the day.

Overnight, bearish momentum continued pushing lower, with the $185 previous low broken. Further downside followed in the morning as bears briefly touched the $170 mark.

However, from there, a quick reaction higher was seen this morning and is currently still in play. Likely we will see the Solana price action continue higher later in the day, as bulls are eager to regain some of the loss seen earlier.
