ADA price might rally towards $2.00 if bulls clear overhead resistance at $1.50
Cardano’s price has broken higher since stemming a major downtrend at $0.92 on 21 April. The cryptocurrency ranked 6th by market cap has seen its value increase by about 13% this past week, with an intraday surge of 8% currently placing it around $1.38 as of writing.
The ADA market is likely to see increased buying amid resurgence within the altcoin market, which is led by Ethereum’s fresh assault of price levels above $2,700.
Cardano is ready to soar on the back of major news in the form of a record partnership with the Ethiopian government. According to IOHK Media, the project targets 5 million students in what is “the world’s largest blockchain deployment.”
The news is likely to add to the bullish momentum, fueling buy-side pressure.
Cardano price analysis
The ADA/USD pair is trading above a major horizontal resistance line at $1.35 as bulls seek a retest of the support line at $1.40. The upside has moved the price further off the bearish trend line that had capped movement near $1.20.
The pair is also showing positive signals as it trades above the 50 SMA and 20-day EMA on the 4-hour chart.
The breakout from the ascending triangle formation is likely to result in a retest of the 0.786 Fib level ($1.42). From here bulls can target the $1.50 supply zone, with the all-time high of $1.55 achievable if momentum helps buyers breach the barrier.
A clear breakout above the overhead resistance at $1.73 could see ADA/USD roll towards a new all-time high above $2.00.

On the flip side, short-term profit booking is likely to push ADA price to immediate support at $1.31 (0.618 Fib level). Multiple support levels at the 20-day EMA, ($1.28), 0.5 Fib level ($1.24), and the 50 SMA ($1.20) could help bulls in a swift rebound in case of further declines.
Cardano would however flip bearish if prices cross below $1.20 and the descending trend line, with support at $1.07. The key price level to watch in this case will be the psychological support at $1.00.
