Cardano price analysis on the daily chart
The Cardano price analysis on the daily chart by TradingView paints a bearish picture. The 50-day and 100-day Moving Averages are above the price action, indicating a bearish price action in the long term.
Also, the prices rest in the lower end of the Bollinger Bands, and traders cannot expect an upward movement since volumes are not enough to take the prices higher.
The MACD indicator shows that the MACD line and the signal line are very close to each other. Once the trend is bearish, the histogram has also turned red, filled with red bars.
The RSI levels have fallen below the 50-level as the gradient is negative. The sellers are still in control of the price action, and bulls are kept at bay.
Cardano is definitely a promising token to hold, but it seems that the bull is no longer in control of ADA prices. However, the smart contracts platform is definitely one of the most promising DeFi protocols in the crypto world.
