Now sitting on a traditionally important help degree, the SOL/USD pair might see an upside retracement in June, eyeing the $40-$45 space subsequent, up round 25% from in the present day’s worth.
60% SOL worth decline forward?

In the meantime, the Federal Reserve appears decided to raise benchmark interest rates and scale back its stability sheet. On account of this hawkish coverage, riskier belongings like Bitcoin have room to go lower, hurting Solana’s bullish prospects.
