ADA’s chart did not reflect achievements 

However, at press time, the aforementioned positive updates did not impact ADA’s price, as its daily and weekly charts remained red. As per CoinMarketCap, ADA was down by over 8% in the last seven days.

At the time of writing, it was trading at $0.2599, with a market capitalization of more than $9 billion.

But, the scenario might soon change as CryptoQuant’s data revealed that ADA’s Relative Strength Index (RSI) was in an oversold position, which was bullish. Its MVRV Ratio improved slightly over the last week.  Whale activity was also high, as evident from ADA’s stable whale transaction count.

Moreover, its funding rate was red. The price generally moves the other way than the funding rate, giving hope for a price uptick.

Bulls to take over the market soon?

ADA’s MACD displayed the possibility of a bullish crossover, which meant that the possibility of a northbound price movement could not be ruled out. Nonetheless, ADA’s Exponential Moving Average (EMA) Ribbon continued to support the bears as the 20-day EMA was below the 55-day EMA.

Its Chaikin Money Flow (CMF) also took a sideways path, which could restrict an unprecedented price surge in the near term.
