  • ADA/USD’s bias shits to the downside after rejection once again at 100-HMA.
  • Cardano charts a rising wedge breakdown on the hourly chart.
  • Bears test 50-HMA while the RSI stays within the bearish zone.

Cardano (ADA/USD) extends Friday’s sell-off, as the bearish momentum picks up pace on Saturday, with deeper losses likely on the cards.

The fourth most widely traded crypt  currency has lost 19% of its value over the past seven trading sessions. It’s worth noting that the token has gained 720% since the start of the year amid a broad crypto market rally.  

ADA/USD: Eyes $1 on a sustained break below 50-HMA at $1.1445

As observed on the hourly chart, ADA/USD’s outlook appears bearish in the near-term, as the pair has confirmed a rising wedge breakdown earlier this Saturday.

The natural tendency of this formation is to yield a downside break. Therefore, the sellers remain in control, although they need to find a strong foothold below the downward-sloping 50-hourly moving average (HMA), now at $1.1445.

Acceptance under the latter could trigger a sharp sell-off towards the $1 mark, where the pattern target coincides.

The Relative Strength Index (RSI) looks south, below the midline, suggesting that there is a scope for additional losses.

The sentiment around the spot turned in favor of the bears after the price failed once again at the bearish 100-HMA, currently at $1.1881.

Alternatively, the pattern support now resistance at $1.1737 could check any upside attempts.

The bearish bias will remain intact until the ADA bulls break above the abovementioned 100-HMA barrier on a sustained basis.

The next bullish target awaits at $1.2179, the horizontal 200-HMA hurdle.
