Can the $0.3790 support hold?
After the FOMC meeting in mid-February, ADA rose from $0.3452 to $0.4216, a 20% appreciation. However, it has since formed a descending channel and fallen to $0.3744, a 10% drop after facing price rejection at $0.4216.
If bulls defend the $0.3790 support, near-term targets could include the 50% Fib level of $0.3834 or the 61.8% Fib level of $0.3924. However, key resistance levels also lie at $0.3985 and $0.4052.
Alternatively, sellers may seek market entry if ADA closes below the $0.3790 support. This could offer shorting opportunities at the 38.2% Fib level of $0.3744 or $0.3712 (the descending channel’s lower boundary). The downtrend could be accelerated if BTC drops below $23.76k.

Weekly volatility and open interest rates showed signs of a pivot
According to Santiment, ADA’s weekly price volatility hit bottom and rose gently at the time of writing. Furthermore, the Funding Rate remained positive, suggesting that demand for ADA has remained stable despite the recent price decline. This could indicate a potential price reversal and short-term recovery if the bulls defend the $0.3790 support.
Moreover, ADA’s open interest rate showed an uptick at press time after a recent drop, further reinforcing the pivoting thesis. Nevertheless, the sentiment has improved but remains negative, indicating caution for both bulls and bears.
