At the time of writing, Solana price is $100.57 on Binance.

Solana dropped details of a key milestone in its pre-orders for the second release of its blockchain phone, Solana Mobile. As of Thursday, Solana has received 85,000 pre-orders for its phone, a new record. 

Solana price is likely to rally

Solana price is likely poised for 6% gains as SOL price recovers from its local bottom of $92.88 to $100.82, on Thursday. The altcoin sustained above the key psychological level of $100. The Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) indicator flashes green bars and indicates there is positive momentum and SOL price could potentially rally. 

The Relative Strength Index (RSI) reads 56.93, the reading is above the neutral level of 50. SOL price could face resistance at R1, $107.12, a level that acted as resistance for SOL since December 2023. If SOL price breaks past R1, the altcoin could rally towards its 2024 peak of $117.03.

A daily candlestick close below the daily support/resistance level of $90.79 could invalidate the bullish thesis for SOL. Solana price could then nosedive towards $85.42, its January 8 low.
