Cardano recovered from its steep decline on October 26
Ethereum’s competitor Cardano witnessed a steep decline on October 26 amidst market-wide drop in crypto and S&P 500. Over the past week, Cardano yielded 16% gains to holders and made a comeback above the $0.38 level.
Bob Mason, a leading crypto analyst has identified $0.41 as the next key level of resistance for Cardano price in its uptrend. The analyst believes that a breakout past $0.41 would signal a continuation of the bullish uptrend. Cardano would need the support of the broader market for continuation of its climb towards the $0.431 target.
Mason argues that in the event of an extended rally, Cardano price is likely to hit second major resistance at $0.431 and the third major resistance level at $0.464.

Mason believes that a bullish crossover of the 50-day EMA through the 100-day EMA would signal a move from resistance at $0.418 to the next major resistance at $0.431. However, a decline through the 200-day EMA at $0.398 could result in a trend reversal and a drop to the $0.385 level.
