The overall Cardano price action structure is still bearish as the market saw a strong retracement from the previous high of $1.90 over the past weeks. On the 22nd of June, ADA/USD spiked to the $1 mark, where the previous major low was set, indicating that we could see a double bottom pattern formed.

This price action development resulted in a move higher over the past days with two local higher highs set and a previous support area around $1.30-$1.35 reached. Eventually, ADA/USD reached the $1.40 mark.

Overnight, the Cardano price established a small consolidation area below the $1.40 mark, indicating that the market is likely ready to retrace some of the gains. From there, earlier today, ADA/USD started to move lower again.

Currently, the $1.30 mark holds the market from further downside. However, considering the rapid gain over the past few days, we can expect further downside over the next 24 hours. Likely support will be found around the $1.15 mark. If a higher medium-term low is established around this price area, we can expect ADA/USD to move a lot higher from there over the next week.

Cardano Price Analysis: Conclusion 

Cardano price analysis is bearish for the upcoming hours as the market looks to retrace some of yesterday`s loss. This should lead towards a new higher low established around the $1.15 mark.
