Cardano’s technical picture

Looking technically, ADA/USD created a double top at $0.0460. The price touched this area on November 6 and November 17 and failed to go any farther. It means the recovery may be limited so far. The nears support is created by SMA100 (Simple Moving Average) daily at $0.0440 followed by a confluence of SMA50 and the lower line of the Bollinger Band on a daily chart at $0.0410. Then comes psychological $0.0400. Once it is out of the way, the recent low of $0.0352 will come into focus.  

On the upside, the initial resistance awaits us on approach to the above-said double top of $0.0460. We will need to see a sustainable move above this handle for the upside to gain traction towards psychological $0.0500 and then to September 18 high at $0.0555.
