Cardano Price Outlook
On the daily chart, we can see that The Cardano price has broken out of a rising channel at 1.7875.
This should provide be a bullish catalyst for the price, and a close above this level may attract momentum buyers.
However, a close back inside the channel may suggest a false break out. Subsequently, the Cardano price could then fall back to the midpoint of the channel, at $1.3658.
In light of the recent developments, I am bullish on the Cardano price and suggest adding a positive closing price outside the channel.
Risk-averse longs should place a stop below the $1.5570 high from April 24th. For traders with a higher risk profile, a stop below $1.3658 allows more room to hold the position.
