ADA/USD 12-hour chart
The most significant support trend line is located at $1.15. A 12-hour candlestick close below this point would be devastating and could drive ADA toward the 200 SMA at $0.94 and as low as $0.74, a price target calculated using the initial height of the pattern as a reference point
However, if bulls can hold the key support trend line, they could aim for a breakout of a symmetrical triangle pattern formed on the 1-hour chart
