  • Binance Futures brings the number of supported digital assets to 11 with Cardano (ADA) contract’s support.
  • Cardano fails to respond to the news, instead, it dives from January peak to test the 21 SMA support.

Cardano is in the middle of a retreat mission following the recent highs it achieved at $0.0575. The bearish correction is in tandem with the general negative trend across the crypto landscape. It appears that cryptocurrencies will close the week in losses, although most of the cryptoassets posted incredible gains at the beginning of the week.

At the time of writing, ADA is trading at $0.054. The momentum is dipped below an ascending trendline. If the 21 SMA on the 4-hour chart fails to hold, there is a chance ADA will breakdown to the key support at $0.050. Other key support areas traders should keep in mind are the 50 SMA, $0.0450, $0.0400 and $0.0322 (January low).

The trend shown by the technical indicators has a bearish bias in the short term. The RSI has been purged from the overbought territory. The continuing downward slopping motion confirms the growing bears’ influence. Similarly, the MACD features a bearish cross, which also highlights the rising bearish pressure.
