- Cardano price slid nearly 8% as the crypto market collectively witnessed a minor market crash.
- The recent sell-off has allowed ADA to tap a confluence of support around $1.26, increasing its upswing probabilities.
- A 20% run-up to $1.54 seems likely if sidelined investors begin to pour in.
Cardano price has been on a steady upswing over the past week but faces a tiny retracement today. A bounce from the immediate support barrier seems likely.
Cardano price aims to come back stronger
On the 4-hour chart, Cardano price has sliced through the 50 four-hour Simple Moving Average (SMA) at $1.31 and tested the confluence of 100 and 200 SMAs at roughly $1.26. Interestingly, this point is just above a crucial demand zone that stretches from $1.19 to $1.25.
This crash has restarted the Momentum Reversal indicator (MRI) count and prevented the formation of a cycle top. Additionally, the quick bounce shows that buyers are ready to purchase ADA at a discount.
Beyond $1.52, if the bullish momentum persists, market participants can expect a retest of the all-time high at $1.55 and a leg up to new record levels.

On the flip side, if the sell-off continues, Cardano price could most likely enter the aforementioned demand zone. A breakdown of the range low at $1.13 and extended trading below this level will most likely invalidate the bullish thesis.
However, as long as ADA stays inside the next area of support ranging from $1.14 to $1.01, it still has a chance at recovery, no matter how slim.
