Top 3 Coins to Watch Today: ADA, FTM, XTZ – May 25 Trading Analysis

May 25, 2022, 8:00 AM AEST - 1 month ago

Let’s take a closer look at today’s altcoins showing breakout signals. We’ll explain what the coin is, then dive into the trading charts and provide some analysis to help you decide.

1. Cardano (ADA)

Cardano ADA is a proof-of-stake blockchain platform whose stated goal is to allow “changemakers, innovators, and visionaries” to bring about positive global change. The open-source project also aims to “redistribute power from unaccountable structures to the margins to individuals”, helping to create a society that is more secure, transparent, and fair. Cardano is used by agricultural companies to track fresh produce from field to fork, while other products built on the platform allow educational credentials to be stored in a tamper-proof way, and retailers to clamp down on counterfeit goods.

ADA Price Analysis

At the time of writing, ADA is ranked the 8th cryptocurrency globally and the current price is US$0.5086. Let’s take a look at the chart below for price analysis:

ADA‘s near 60% drop after Q1 found a low near $0.4635 during mid-May before closing over a short-term high.

This daily close over the high could signal a shift in market structure that may reach probable resistance near $0.6015. A sustained bullish move may target the swing high at $0.6422. If this stop run occurs, a run beyond the high into probable resistance near $0.7110 and $0.7519 is possible.

Bulls could buy a retracement to possible support near $0.4845, just above the weekly open. A bearish turn in the marketplace may propel the price toward possible support near $0.4425. 

However, relatively equal lows near $0.4157 and $0.4022 provide an attractive target for bears if the market resumes its bearish trend. A run on these lows might find support between $0.3847 and $0.3752.

2. Fantom (FTM)

Fantom FTM is a directed acyclic graph (DAG) smart contract platform providing decentralised finance (DeFi) services to developers using its own bespoke consensus algorithm. Together with its in-house token FTM, Fantom aims to solve problems associated with smart-contract platforms – specifically transaction speed, which developers say they have reduced to under two seconds.

FTM Price Analysis

At the time of writing, FTM is ranked the 50th cryptocurrency globally and the current price is US$0.4108. Let’s take a look at the chart below for price analysis:

FTM‘s bounce during Q1 ran into resistance near the old monthly highs. This rejection created a set of relatively equal highs near $1.62, possibly forming the next bullish leg’s target.

Currently, the price is testing possible support near the weekly open, around $0.4011. This level also has confluence with the 80.6% retracement of the current local range and the 18 and 40 EMAs. 

If this level fails to provide support, a zone from $0.3834 to $0.3530 might mark a possible swing low or consolidation area. This zone is between the 65.8% and 78.6% retracement of early August’s swing.

A more bearish tone in the market could propel the price lower. The lows, near $0.3230, might mark an area of possible support as well as a bearish target.

3. Tezos (XTZ)

Tezos XTZ is a blockchain network that’s based on smart contracts in a way that’s not too dissimilar to Ethereum. However, there’s a big difference: Tezos aims to offer infrastructure that is more advanced – meaning it can evolve and improve over time without any danger of a hard fork. This is something both Bitcoin and Ethereum have suffered since they were created. People who hold XTZ can vote on proposals for protocol upgrades that have been put forward by Tezos developers.

XTZ Price Analysis

At the time of writing, XTZ is ranked the 37th cryptocurrency globally and the current price is US$2.05. Let’s take a look at the chart below for price analysis:

XTZ‘s 70% drop since late March saw a second leg after last month’s market-wide drop ran the previous consolidation’s stops.

The level near $2.50 is providing some resistance. However, continuation through the monthly high at $2.32 is not out of the question. Aggressive bulls might bid in the current region near $2.00. 

If the price runs the recent swing low, bulls might bid in the gap near $1.92. A deeper retracement could reach near the early monthly level and a gap near $1.86. The region near $1.80 and $1.73 may also provide some support during a deeper retracement.
