Cardano 6-hour Chart
Cardano’s [ADA] 6-hour chart displayed the formation of an ascending parallel pattern, with the price following two trendlines moving upwards. This indicated a bearish breakout after the closure of the pattern. The moving average aligned with the bears. Here, the 100 moving average was above the 50 moving average, indicative of a potential negative breakout.
The Cardano bulls resisted below $0.045. Another major resistance point was found at $0.048, a level not seen since the losses incurred in September. If the trend persists, a further decline would trigger a fall in price and ADA could find itself testing support at key $0.036 level.
The MACD was above the signal line, suggesting a potentially bullish period for the coin. The RSI indicator was above the 50 median line, indicating a bullish phase among Cardano investors.
Despite indicators calling for a bullish breakout, Cardano’s pattern formation and moving averages could lead to a downward spiral. The coin could go back to the crucial $0.036 level.
