Solana (SOL) reached a six-week high on Wednesday, following the release of the latest inflation figures from the United States. The consumer price index (CPI) fell to 5% in March, which was lower than the 5.2% forecasted by many. Ethereum Classic (ETC) also rose, nearing a multi-week high.
SOL/USD extended its gains from Tuesday, rising for a fourth consecutive session. The token surged to an intraday high of $24.34 earlier in the day, after reaching a low of $22.42 on Tuesday. Following today’s surge, SOL reached its strongest point since February 21, when it traded at $24.71.
Looking at the daily chart, Wednesday’s rally was driven by Solana bulls taking the token beyond a key resistance level of $24.00. One of the catalysts for this breakout was the 14-day relative strength index (RSI), which moved beyond a ceiling of its own at 64.00. At the time of writing, the index is now tracking at 66.65, which is marginally below a higher resistance level of 68.00.
ETC/USD continued to trade in the green in today’s session, reaching a fresh multi-month high after hitting a low of $20.75 on Tuesday. As of writing, ETC/USD has moved to a high of $22.18. This recent move has seen Ethereum Classic climb to its highest level since March 18, after breaking out beyond a ceiling at $21.50. Similar to Solana, this has resulted in price strength moving past its own obstacles, and it is now tracking marginally below another hurdle at the 64.00 mark. Should the index find a way past this point of resistance, there is a good chance that ETC will head towards $23.00.
