Looking at its broader performance, Cardano has had a mixed-price action since the start of 2023. The altcoin began the year in style, gaining over 70% to trade at $0.41 as of February 16.
This price surge was, however, followed by a bearish trend bringing the token’s price as low as $0.30 on March 10. Thereafter, ADA would resume its bullish trajectory, rising to its highest price so far in 2023 at $0.45 on April 16.
Over the next two months, Cardano’s price slumped once again before showing sideways movement over the last three weeks.
Analyzing its 4-Hour Chart, ADA has encountered resistance at the $0.38 price zone and appears to be experiencing a recorrection. However, a rise in selling pressure could result in the token trading as low as $0.28, which marks its imminent support level.
On the other hand, if the bulls retake control and manage to push past the $0.38 resistance price level, ADA is likely to rise to $0.42, which represents the next major resistance level.
At the time of writing, ADA is trading at $0.35 with a 2.30% loss in the last hour. The token’s trading volume is up by a stunning 808.08% and is valued at $1.4 billion. With a market cap of $12.3 billion, Cardano is ranked as the 7th biggest cryptocurrency in the world.
