Fake Cardano price? ADA’s 45% rebound in two days could trap bulls


The price of Cardano (ADA) rose from $0.48 on May 30 to $0.68 on May 31, a 45% increase in less than 48 hours. But ADA/USD failed to extend its upward rally and fell nearly 13.75% from its weekly high.

ADA Price: Ear Market Vibrations

Interestingly, the downward retracement began after ADA tested its 50-day exponential moving average (50-day EMA; the red wave in the chart below) as resistance. Additionally, the pair declined alongside broader corrective sentiment across riskier assets, including Bitcoin (BTC) and the S&P 500 (SPX).

Now, the Cardano token is at risk of another price correction, according to Digital Trend, a contributor to SeekingAlpha’s financial analysis, noting that ADA has seen strong price rallies in the past that turned into bull traps, adding:

“In March, we saw the ADA go from south of $0.80 to over $1.24 in a matter of weeks. This, to me, looks like another fake-out.”

Several fundamental factors also support a bearish outlook. On June 1, the Federal Reserve will begin unwinding its $9 trillion portfolio of assets, likely creating more headwinds for risky assets, Cardano included.

“I don’t think we know the impacts of QT [quantitative tightening] at the moment, especially since we haven’t reduced the balance sheet much in history,” Dan Eye, chief investment officer of Fort Pitt Capital Group, told Market Watch, adding that the removal of liquidity market “would affect multiples in valuations to some extent. »

ADA has consolidated inside what appears to be a “bullish pennant”, confirmed by price fluctuating inside a triangle pattern following a massive upward move, referred to as a “flagpole”. .

Typically, a bullish pennant resolves after price crosses its upper trendline and rises by as much as the height of the mast.
