Solana’s pricing techniques (SOL) suggest that SOL may reach $ 275 in the next few sessions.
The upside outlook for the world’s sixth largest cryptocurrency by market cap comes as it consolidates in a range that resembles a Bull Pennant.
In detail, Bull Pennants are bullish continuation indicators that form as price consolidates into a symmetrical triangle-like structure following a strong bullish move.
The trend towards consolidation accompanies lower volumes, reflecting the underlying weakness of the trend.
And, as the price neared the top, the point where the trendlines of the Pennant converge, it tends to experience a breakout to the upside with the bullish target being in length equal to the height of the previous uptrend, c that is, Flagpole.
Solana’s mast height is around $ 125. That said, a breakout move at the top of the Pennant (at around $ 150) gets SOL going for $ 275.

Solana’s outlook for reaching $ 275 comes amid an overall price spike in the crypto market.
However, SOL’s price has also risen 8% against Bitcoin (BTC) over the past two days, in part due to its listing on Upbit, South Korea’s premier crypto exchange.

Despite Bitcoin currently in the limelight, Solana’s price has likely also received a boost from institutional capital via dedicated investment funds, according to to a CoinShares report released earlier this week.
