Cardano price analysis

TL;DR Breakdown

  • Cardano price analysis is suggesting a bullish market
  • ADA/USD continued to retrace over the last 24 hours.
  • ADA found resistance at $2.60

Cardano is warming up for the final stage of the Alonzo Upgrade set to take place at 21:00 UTC on September 12th, 2021. In the hours leading to the smart contracts update, ADA/USD is trading bullishly and hence our positive Cardano price analysis. The coin is already up by 6 percent following a retracement yesterday that saw the coin breach the $2.6 resistance. We are therefore expecting Cardano to increase in price in the next 24-hours and attempt to break above the $3 mark.

ADA/USD 4-hour chart: ADA ready to reverse?

On the 4-hour chart, we can see the Cardano price attempting to break above the Bollinger Band moving average at $2.610 but still faces high resistance and high chances of a reversal. However, we are still expecting a possible rally in the next few hours that could see the coin retest $2.800.

Cardano’s price action has been trading along with strong bullish momentum in the last 4-weeks. This was after the coin rallied by over 250 percent from the July swing low to the recent swing high at $3.10. 

After breaching the previous high of $3, Cardano bulls felt exhausted and reversed from the $3.1 resistance. Over the last 24 hours, Cardano tested the $2.800 higher high after Friday’s downtrend where the coin tested the $2.30 support.

If Cardano manages to overcome the $2.6 resistance and spike to $2.8, there is a likelihood of retesting $2.9 and trending to the $3.1 resistance. And this could happen ahead of the Alonzo upgrade later today. 

Cardano Price Analysis: Conclusion 

Today’s Cardano price analysis is bullish after the market tested support at the $2.80 mark. Therefore, we expect a new higher low is set, and Cardano is ready to test further upside.
