The last couple of weeks have been filled with surprises for the crypto community. While Bitcoin [BTC] encountered a huge drop from $58K to $45K, Cardano [ADA] rose to a new high in price and ranking. But this trend seems to be in threat.
Last week, the crypto market was hit by a massive downtrend that looted several assets of their gains garnered during the crypto rally. However, one cryptocurrency seemed to be untethered by the momentary bearish market. Cardano [ADA] leaped while the other assets were trying to survive the bear infiltration. The altcoin managed to move past its previous all-time high, further recording a new one at $1.48.
ADA, at the time of writing, was trading at $1.23. While the community expected ADA to rush to $2, the altcoin was seen retracing. The asset endured no significant price changes throughout the day. The ADA market cap was soaring at $39.13 billion as it finally found a spot as the third-largest coin. ADA overhauled prominent coins like Binance coin [BNB], XRP, and several others.

Things weren’t so bright on ADA’s short-term price chart. All the indicators used in the chart were suggesting the presence of bears. The Parabolic SAR, for instance, had flipped upwards, acting as a line of resistance. The Awesome Oscillator further accompanied this as it formed red closing bars, also indicating bearish momentum. If this trend persists, ADA could drop to a low of $1.17.
Despite the bears’ take over, ADA was still widely bought, the Relative Strength Index indicator affirmed.

The Chaikin Money Flow indicator was siding the bulls as it remained over zero. However, the MACD indicator was seen heading in a bearish crossover after lengthening its bullish crossover for quite a while.
Cardano [ADA] could get off its throne in the coming few hours, considering the bears in the ADA’s short-term price chart. However, the one-day chart delivered a confusing notion with the bulls and the bears fighting in its market. While a bearish sentiment could push the altcoin below $1, a bullish trend’s persistence could help it reach $2.
