Cardano (ADA), the sixth-largest cryptocurrency, by market capitalization, has seen a significant loss in value since September, shortly after reaching a new all-time high of over $3. After declining to a low of $1.23 on December 20, it has rebounded as Bitcoin also recently moved up past the $50,000 mark. As of December 27, Cardano is witnessing bullish sentiments that pushed ADA over 8% in the last 24h.
In this analysis, we’ll overview some technical indicators to give you a general idea of what is likely to happen in the short term for ADA. For the purpose of the analysis, we will be using the 24-hour (daily) timeframe in order to get a fairly accurate picture of the asset’s behavior on a zoomed-out chart.
Relative strength index (RSI) shows room for growth
The 14-day Relative Strength Index (RSI) for ADA currently stands at 58.65. While this is not an indication that the asset is oversold, it also does not suggest that it is overbought. It will be considered overbought typically at >70, but again, this is not always the case.
Therefore, as much as it is not overbought and has room for price growth, it can still retrace if the market decides to move downwards again.
MACD indicates trend reversal to the upside
The Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) uses two different moving averages to determine trends. This indicator suggests that ADA has broken out of the downward trend that it entered days ago and could be heading to the upside.
As seen from the chart below, the MACD (blue line) has crossed over the signal indicator (yellow line) with green bars showing up instead of red. When this happens, it means there is a trend reversal to the upside. Another cross of the yellow line over the blue would indicate a new trend reversal to the downside.
Tightened Bollinger Bands starting to open
The Bollinger Bands are momentum indicators that can be used to tell whether an asset is in bearish or bullish momentum. Until recently, the bands have been moving fairly parallel to each other with the price leaning towards the lower.
This indicates a continuous bearish trend. The bands however contracted towards each other shortly and are now opening up again with the price leaning towards the upper band.
The tightening bands indicated on the chart show that ADA reached a moment of decision and the opening end with price leaning towards the upper band indicates that the asset is breaking upward, a reversal from the previous bearish trend.
The above top indicators suggest that ADA has entered a trend reversal from the bearish trend it has sustained for some time now. This would typically lead to a move to the upside as it is already doing, but whether this will be sustained depends on the bulls holding their position against the bears.
