Cardano Price Paring Losses Versus Bitcoin, ADA/USD Finds Ceiling at $1



Cardano Price Preditction Cover

The Cardano price is snapping back on-trend, shaking weakness early this week as buyers aim for $1 or better.

As of writing on Feb 18, the ADA price is changing hands at around Feb and 2021 highs, above $0.93 in a buy trend continuation pattern.

Accordingly, ADA is one of the top performers in the top-10. Specifically, in USD-terms, the coin is firm, adding a ballpark 10 percent on the last day. Meanwhile, it is paring losses with the BTC and ETH, losing three percent and racing back to break-even, respectively.

The path of least resistance is northwards. Affirming this bias is the presence of high trading volumes, pointing to grassroots demand. For instance, the average daily trading of ADA jumped seven percent as over $4.2 billion changed hands on the last day.

Cardano (ADA) Price Overview

The recovery of ADA began mid this week. Buyers are building on the three-bar reversal pattern visible in the daily chart confirming the entry of bulls once prices shrunk between Feb 11 and 15.

The first liquidation wall is $1—a round number that traders are closely watching.

On the lower end, Feb 15 lows and the middle BB could be the springboard for aggressive traders aiming at $1.3 in the immediate term. The 20-day moving average acts as support, capping the current trade range.

However, it is imperative to note that gains above $1 will confirm the current consolidation as an accumulation, opening up ADA/USD to $1.32. On the flip side, a high-volume dump completes a three-bar bear reversal pattern that may see the ADA price slide to $0.40 in a retest.

Even so, risk-averse traders can wait for a breakout above $1 or below Feb 10 lows of $0.65 before committing. This is because the resulting movement might define the coin’s immediate term trajectory.

Cardano Price Prediction

Cardano Price Paring losses versus Bitcoin, ADA/USD Finds Ceiling at $1

The ADA/USD price remains in an uptrend and price discovery mode.

The ceiling is at $1 for ambitious buyers aiming at $1.31—the coin’s all-time-high flashing with the 3.618 Fibonacci extension level of the 2018 to 2020 trade range (visible in the weekly chart).

Presently, the underlying momentum is firm. ADA bull bars are banding along the upper BB in the weekly chart pointing to demand and trader expectations.

In the medium term, a sharp break out above $1 confirms buyers of Feb 10. Note that prices are still ranging within the bull bar, pointing to demand from an Effort versus Result point of view.

However, the pace—or the spike’s rapidity to $1.3, is highly dependent on accompanying trading volumes. An uptick exceeding those of Feb 10 will build a sound foundation for buyers.

A dump down below $0.65—Feb 10 low will deflate bulls, forcing prices back to $0.40.
