Cardano price action has seen strong bullish momentum over the past weeks. After a new major swing low was set below $1.10 on the 10th of January, ADA/USD saw a strong push higher to $1.35 later last week.

The following retracement set clear higher low above $1.20 before more upside followed. Over the following days, ADA gained over 30 percent and broke past previous swing highs. 

The Cardano price peaked at $1.638 yesterday, meaning a very strong higher high has been set. However, since then, bears have taken over as ADA/USD retraces. Likely we will see some more downside tested before another higher low is set from which to move higher later in the week.

Cardano Price Analysis: Conclusion 

Cardano price analysis is bearish today as we saw more downside overnight after a strong rejection of upside. Therefore, ADA/USD should continue to the $1.30 mark next.
