Furthermore, as of the current assessment, all signals indicate a bullish trend. The Relative Strength Index (RSI) was above 75, signifying a bullish trend in an oversold position with a potential for correction.

Additionally, the Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) was over zero, and the lines were trading above 4, highlighting a robust bull trend. This remarkable trend has also captured the attention of the broader cryptocurrency community.

Solana asserts some social dominance

The recent surge in Solana’s price trend has significantly amplified the volume of discussions about SOL.

Its social dominance chart on Santiment indicated this. An analysis of this chart showed that it has climbed to one of its highest points in nearly five months.

At the time of writing, the social dominance was around 4.9%. The last instance of higher social dominance occurred on 1st November, reaching around 5.7%.

Additionally, the current social dominance level indicates that SOL is presently a subject of discussion in nearly 5% of the crypto space.

This suggests a potential scenario where more individuals might be compelled to buy in due to fear of missing out (FOMO), contributing to further upward pressure on the price.

Examining the volume chart on Solana showed a notable convergence between price and volume. The chart illustrates that the volume started to rise simultaneously with the price increase.
