The cryptocurrency market continues to wade through the murky red waters of a bearish trend – made worse by the collapse of FTX. Despite the negative market mood, ADA has so far held well against the rest of the market, down only 0.6% in the past 24 hours.

Cardano Price Forecast: Bulls Have to Hold Firmly at $0.30 Support
Cardano’s price is struggling to hold above a critical level, as highlighted by the gray band at $0.30 (S-1). ADA has also formed a lower-high pattern, with its upside capped by a bearish descending trendline.
Sellers will likely stay in control, especially with Cardano trading below all the major moving averages, including the 50-day Exponential Moving Average (EMA) (in red), the 100-day EMA (in blue), and the 200-day EMA (in purple).
Traders looking to short current levels must wait until ADA closes below $0.30 to avoid a bear trap which quickly rebounds to the upside Take-profit targets on the downside have been highlighted at $0.20 and $0.165.
The Stochastic oscillator in the same 3-day timeframe confirms the strong bearish grip on the price. However, it also shows that ADA faces extremely oversold conditions that could pave the way for a recovery in the short term. Asset prices tend to return to fair market values. Hence, there is a chance for a short-term rally. That said, all momentum seems to point at the price breaking down, so bulls may need to wait for a strong green candle before jumping in.
A break above the descending trend line could mark the beginning of an uptrend. Potential take-profit targets to look out for as ADA recovers include the 50-day EMA at $0.465, the 100-day EMA at $0.649 and the 200-day EMA at $0.862.
Cardano Alternatives to Consider as The Year Ends
As analyzed, Cardano must hold above $0.30 to avoid revisiting downstream levels to $0.165. While ADA still dons a positive outlook, it may take longer to materialize, with its recovery stifled by the uncertainty of a bear market cycle. That’s why interesting investors can look into promising presales with the potential to rally after listing on exchanges.
