Dips In ADA Remain Supported
If ADA starts a downside correction, the $0.0520 area might act as a decent support. It coincides with the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent rise from the $0.0440 low to $0.0545 high.
The first major support for the bulls is near the $0.0500 level. In addition, the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent rise from the $0.0440 low to $0.0545 high is also positioned just below the $0.0500 level.
If cardano fails to stay above the $0.0500 support area, the bulls might lose control. In the mentioned bearish case, the price is likely to start a larger downside correction towards the $0.0465 support (the recent breakout zone) or it could test the 100 simple moving average (4-hours) in the coming days.
