Will sellers drive Cardano lower?
Since mid-July, ADA’s price action has faced price rejection at the range-high. If the trend persists, the press time price action could face the same fate.
Besides, the range-high of $0.2495 had a confluence with the 50-EMA (Exponential Moving Average) on the daily chart at press time. So, sellers could camp at the roadblock and force another decline to the H4 bullish order block of $0.2367 – $0.2433 (cyan), the mid-range or the range-low (near $0.21).
Conversely, a daily candlestick session close above the range-high and 50-EMA will reinforce a bullish intent. However, the daily market structure will only flip bullish if ADA exceeds $0.26. If so, the next target will be $0.28.
Meanwhile, the RSI has labored in the low range since August, demonstrating elevated sell pressure in Q3. On the contrary, the CMF reclaimed the zero mark in September and hasn’t dropped below the threshold, underscoring improved capital inflows over the same period.

According to Coinalyze, the Open Interest rates declined further from 10 September, easing from $90 million to below $85 million as of press time. It shows demand for ADA in the derivatives market dipped over the same period.
