Cardano’s movement since the March dump has been explosive, with the coin surging by a whopping 449% from its lowest point to its highest point on the charts. Not only did ADA rush past its pre-March levels, but it also attempted to breach the highs last managed back in March 2019.
Cardano, ranked as the market’s 11th largest cryptocurrency, had a market cap of $2.15 billion, at the time of writing. However, while the token, at press time, was trading at $0.0833, its bubble needs to burst. This is especially likely since the crypto’s daily time frame shows the formation of a bearish pattern on the charts.
Cardano one-day chart
From the above, the uptrend Cardano has been on is clearly visible. However, as the crypto’s price nears the end of a pattern, a breakout is required. As previously mentioned, the breakout from the ascending channel is bearish, which means the price will drop to 50 DMA [yellow] at $0.072, a 12.59% drop.
In an extremely bearish scenario, there is a chance of the price dropping down to the 200 DMA at $0.0506, which is a 40% drop from the price level, at the time of writing. These targets are medium-to-long-term targets and they will be achieved in time, at least the 1st target.
Cardano four-hour chart
Even on the four-hour time frame, ADA exhibited bearishness with the formation of a descending triangle. The descending triangle showed the consolidation of price with lower highs but above the support, which formed the base of the triangle.
At press time, a few more bounces could be expected before the price finally breaks out of the pattern. The Relative Strength Index showed a similar sentiment, with the same leaning towards the overbought zone on the charts; meaning, the price might surge a little before it heads towards the base of the triangle, which is a 10% drop.
Assuming the situation is still bearish at the time of breakout, the likely target for ADA is $0.0656, which is another 10% drop from the base of the triangle. Hence, the overall outlook for ADA is bearish, both in the short and the long-term.
