Cardano Price Prediction: ADA consolidation hints at a 16% breakout – FXStreet

Akash Girimath Akash Girimath

Cardano price has been consolidating above a crucial level by producing roughly equal lows and lower highs, giving rise to a generally bearish pattern. However, due to its location at a critical demand zone, ADA has a chance at a bullish breakout.
Cardano price set up three lower highs and roughly two equal lows around $1.20 since December 7. Connecting these swing points using trend lines result in a descending triangle. This technical formation usually resolves to the downside and is considered a bearish pattern. However, Cardano price has formed this consolidation pattern just above a daily demand zone, extending from $1.02 to $1.19. Therefore, the chances of ADA heading lower are low.
Regardless, this setup forecasts a 16% breakout to $1.51, determined by adding the distance between the first swing high and swing low to the breakout point. Assuming a bullish outlook, ADA needs to produce a four-hour candlestick close above the triangle’s hypotenuse at $1.30 to trigger a bull rally. 
During this ascent, Cardano price will face the $1.45 hurdle that needs to be overcome for the bulls to hit their target at $1.51.

Although unlikely, if Cardano price produces a four-hour candlestick close below the triangle’s base at $1.20, it will signal a bearish breakout. In this case, the descending triangle forecasts a 16% downswing to $1.00. For this outcome to play out, ADA bears need to slice through the massive demand zone first, extending from $1.02 to $1.19.

Bitcoin price shows a tight consolidation on a lower time frame – an ascending parallel channel – that repeats the motif of three larger channels that have developed on higher time frames since the start of 2022. 
Dogecoin price is at the tail end of the most recent pullback from $0.0917. The largest meme coin pivots at $0.0686 at the time of writing, but it’s expected to close the distance to $0.1000 with its next move. Anticipation of the release of a Dogecoin-Ethereum bridge may prove a bullish catalyst.
Ethereum (ETH) price is set to enter a rare moment of silence as liquidity thins towards 16:00 CET, and traders await the comments from Fed chair Jerome Powell at one of the most important central bank events of this year.
Tezos (XTZ) price action is on the cusp of printing some violent swings as Fed chair Powell preparesto make one of his biggest speeches for the year. With investors looking for clues on what to do, the initial reaction will probably be a dovish one with a pop above a big technical hurdle. Only then will there be a substantial paring back of the gains, potentially with a nuclear implosion that will continue for days.
