Cardano partners PwC

Cardano’s partnership with PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC), one of the world’s largest auditing companies, might have served as a bullish catalyst for ADA. The deal was announced by Charles Hoskinson, the CEO of IOHK, the company behind Cardano development. While the details of the partnership are not disclosed at this stage, Hoskinson promised that the company would soon reveal a rebranding strategy that would turn Cardano into a recognized commercial product.

Cardano Price Analysis: ADA/USD bulls set their eyes on SMA50 weekly

ADA/USD: technical picture

The initial support is created by $0.0529, which is the upper boundary of the daily Bollinger Band. If history is any guide, the price is likely to return inside the Bollinger Band from the overbought levels. The next strong support comes at $0.0438 where SMA200 daily meets the middle line of the above-said Bollinger Band. Once this area is cleared the sell-off may gather pace and take the price towards $0.0381 (SMA50 daily). This area is likely to slow down the bears and serve as a jumping-off ground for a recovery. 

On the upside, the price stopped within a whisker of SMA50 weekly at $0.0562. We will need to see a sustainable recovery above this area to improve the long-term technical picture. Once it happens, $0.06 will come into focus.
