Price of Cardano (ADA) has been unstable following larger market trends. Bitcoin slid upto 20% over the past week and major altcoins followed through. Bitcoin’s revisit to levels that it hasn’t touched for months has caused other altcoins to plummet considerably.
In just 24 hours, ADA nosedived 20% and over the last seven days, the coin posted over 30% loss in market value. ADA has been one of the worst performing altcoins of the month causing investors and buyers to flee the market.
Continued sell off could cause the coin to dip further and rest near the $0.40 mark. Amidst other worrying factors, such as increasing inflation, hiked interest rates and an impending recession, broader market weakness could continue to bother the stability of the crypto industry.

Cardano had tried to retest its $0.62 level in the past few days but the bears kept dragging the altcoin down. At the time of writing, ADA was trading far below the 20-SMA line. This means that sellers were driving the price momentum of the coin in the market.
After breaking from the downward trend, ADA had briefly tried to rally which had made the coin revisit the overbought zone as buyers gained confidence for a brief span of time as seen on the Relative Strength Index. Following this however, ADA barely recovered in terms of buying strength as the coin continued to juggle between the oversold zone and underbought zone.
