Analyst spots warning signs, predicts correction in SOL price
Pseudonymous crypto analyst behind the X handle, @Bluntz_Capital, commented on Solana’s price trend in a recent YouTube video. The analyst predicted a pullback in SOL on the daily timeframe. After yielding double-digit gains for holders over the past week, SOL price is likely to correct lower to the 38.2% Fibonacci level, from the bottom of the Elliott Wave pattern, at $49.
According to @Bluntz_Capital, Solana price is likely to decline to the $49 level since the wave pattern is complete.
The recent spike in SOL token deposits to exchanges is another factor that supports a bearish thesis for the Ethereum-alternative token.
Whales deposit SOL to centralized exchanges
Based on data from crypto intelligence tracker, Lookonchain, a whale wallet address "H4yiPh" unstaked 2.16 million SOL tokens worth $128M, on November 16. Of this, 312,868 SOL worth $18.56 million was deposited to Binance and Kraken.
Another whale wallet unstaked 505,034 SOL tokens worth $31.7 million on Thursday, and transferred 505,000 SOL worth $31.7 million out, most of which was deposited to Binance and Kraken.
