The overall Cardano price action trades within a strong bearish momentum over the past weeks. From the last major swing high, around $1.90, Cardano retraced by more than 45 percent until low was found around the $1 mark.  

However, over the last two weeks, Cardano started moving higher again, with several higher highs and lows set along the way to the $1.40 mark, where strong resistance was found. From there, ADA/USD moved sideways earlier this week until bulls built up momentum to push ADA higher again.

Yesterday the $1.40 resistance was breached, and a slightly higher high was set around $1.45. Overall this means that the Cardano price action has lost bullish momentum again, and we can expect another move lower next week.

The $1.30 support will likely prevent further downside initially, and much depends on how Cardano will reach from there. If further downside below $1.30 is seen, we can expect a much serious medium-term swing lower again over the rest of the month.

Cardano Price Analysis: Conclusion 

Cardano price analysis is bearish for the upcoming 24 hours as a slightly higher high was set earlier today, and bears prepare to take over control again. This price action development should lead to another retracement later today back towards the $1.30 support.
