BOTTOM LINE: SOL has been range bound between 50,000cps and 35,400cps since January 2015

Currently, SOL is mega-oversold, and we anticipate a bullish reversal soon. However, failure to recover above 41,990cps or trade through the resistance trendline of the bear trend (formed within the huge range band), could compromise key support at 35,400cps.
If so, we would recommend an aggressive short below that level, as SOL would have defied support maintained since January 2015. The first target would be at 30,050cps.
A positive breakout of the current bear trend would be confirmed above 43,630cps, so in this instance, go long – the upside target would be at 50,000cps.
