• Cardano price is consolidating inside a symmetrical triangle, hinting at a 17% breakout.
  • The upside for ADA seems to be limited at $2.76 or the 70.5% Fibonacci retracement level.
  • The commercial arm of Cardano establishes EMURGO Africa to help 100 startups, among other things.

Cardano price is currently consolidating with no directional bias in sight. Moreover, the upside for ADA is infested with stacked resistance barriers, making a bullish scenario an uphill battle.

Emurgo establishes in Africa

EMURGO, a commercial arm of the Cardano blockchain, announced the establishment of EMURGO Africa recently. As a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Cardano ecosystem, EMURGO will invest in “early startup and growth companies focused on building socially impactful solutions powered by Cardano. The investment process will be done by EMURGO Africa and EMURGO Ventures."

The grand vision of this arm is to establish Cardano as the standard tech infrastructure platform in Africa to bring financial empowerment. 

The announcement further added,

To mark EMURGO Africa’s official launch and first portfolio investment, it has forged a strategic partnership with Adanian Labs - a successful pan-African venture studio and incubator currently provides services all over Africa with focuses on building impact driven tech start-ups across key sectors.

Cardano price at decisive moment

Cardano price set up three lower highs since September 18 and two higher lows in the same time frame. Connecting these swing points using trend lines results in the formation of a symmetrical triangle.

This technical pattern has no directional bias, but a target is obtained by adding the distance between the first swing high and swing low to the breakout point.

Assuming a Cardano price breaches the upper trend line around $2.27, the setup forecasts a 17% upswing to $2.65, coinciding with the 62% Fibonacci retracement level. However, this run-up will not be easy as it would require ADA to slice through the $2.39 and $2.51 resistance barriers.

If Cardano price manages to breach through this and retest $2.27, there is a chance that an increased bullish momentum could trigger a retest of $2.76.

On the other hand, if the ADA price fails to slice through the upper trend line, it is likely to venture lower and retest the inclined trend line of the symmetrical triangle. A breakdown below this barrier at around $2.09 will forecast a 17% downswing to $1.73. 

Similar to the stacked resistance barriers in the case of a bullish breakout, Cardano price has $1.99, $1.91 and $1.81 stable support floors. Therefore, investors can expect the selling pressure to reduce after retesting either of these before tagging the intended target at $1.73.
