ADA/USD: Technical picture
After a sharp sell-off during early Asian hours, Cardano (ADA) has started a slow recovery. A critical $0.0500 served as a strong support level that stopped the decline and triggered the rebound. The next resistance is created by a combination of 1-hour SMA50, SMA100, and SMA200 as well as 4-hour SMA50clustered around $0.0550. Once it is out of the way, the upside is likely to gain traction with the next focus on $0.0600. A sustainable move above this area will improve the short-term picture and allow for the move towards $0.0620-$0.0630 that served as a consolidation area at the end of February.
