After months of trading within consolidation, Cardano (ADA) price has broken free, portraying a bullish trend across major timeframes. Currently, there is no cloud of weakness in sight, although a pullback is always plausible.
This unfolding scenario ignites a discussion among investors and analysts on whether the price of ADA could reach $0.42 this week.
Cardano Signals Further Price Gains on the Horizon
Last month witnessed a market recovery, during which ADA bounced off the $0.24 support level, reaching a crucial resistance trendline as noted by technical analyst and founder of DecenTrader, Filbfilb. Indeed, the ascent that continued this week helped Cardano nudge the $0.33 level.
Although this level resisted momentarily, ADA’s price remains robust on the weekly timeframe, harnessing energy to scale further highs. The next resistance, stemming from February’s high at $0.42, awaits its test.
A price retraction from the current trading level could usher a brief pullback before the uptrend resumes. Indeed, a broader pullback might serve as a revalidation of the recent breakout. If the $0.33 level extends support, a solid rebound is on the horizon.
Despite the absence of weakness, a rise may continue until Cardano hits a bigger resistance point. It is worth noting that ADA has already chalked up a 33% gain over the last three weeks. While a minor resistance at $0.33 loomed, the higher resistance levels of $0.35 and $0.38 are the ones to watch for a breakout.
While Filbfilb affirmed that “people are betting more” at the current price levels, the rising buying pressure could set the stage for an upswing to $0.42.
As investors’ sentiment veers bullish, the Open Interest (OI) trended higher over the past week despite large dips owing to price volatility. The upward trajectory of price and OI signal a bullish sentiment among investors.
On the downside, should a pullback occur, the closest support level for a rebound sits at $0.30. If this support crumbles, the lower levels to watch are $0.27 and $0.24, with the latter being the last line of defense for the bulls.
ADA Amongst the Altcoins to Benefit the Most
On-chain and technical analyst Ali Martinez also maintains a bullish stance on Cardano. He believes ADA’s current price trend “mirrors the 2018-2020 phase.” However, Martinez pointed out that the most crucial resistance point is at $0.47, a level that could trigger a bull run if breached.
“If history repeats, ADA could stay in this consolidation phase [between $0.24 and $0.46] until July 2024. [Still,] barring unforeseen events like the COVID-19 crash, ADA could break out as soon as December ,” Martinez affirmed.
According to on-chain analytics company Santiment, the sudden spike in the prices of altcoins like Cardano could come from investors booking profits from Bitcoin and “funneling into large and mid-cap assets.” The firm stated that altcoins are yet to “make up for lost time,” emphasizing the potential for further gains.
