Solana ($SOL) Price Could Soon ‘Rage Pump’ After Hitting Bottom, Crypto Analyst
A closely-watched cryptocurrency analyst who predicted 2018’s bear market bottom, has predicted that the price of Ethereum ($ETH) competitor Solana ($SOL) could soon see a “rage pump” after hitting a bottom below the $150 mark.
The pseudonymous cryptocurrency analyst, Smart Contracter, noted on Twitter that Solana has bottomed with a “nice clean 3 wave move down from the highs on daily,” The analyst told his nearly 200,000 followers he expects Solana’s price to hit a new all-time high.
Smart Contracter’s price prediction uses Elliott Wave theory, which according to Investopedia was developed by Ralph Nelson Elliott in the 1920s after he observed and identified “recurring, fractal wave patterns.”
These fractal wave patterns are based on the psychology of the masses. The Elliott Wave theory is usually interpreted is usually interpreted based on five waves moving in the direction of a main market trend, which can be bullish or bearish, and by three corrective waves. The repetition of these patterns, theory suggests, allows the movements of asset prices to be predicted.

Smart Contracrer’s analysis of SOL using it suggests the price of the cryptocurrency has completed a wave-two corrective phase and is now ready for a third wave rally.
