“Cup and Handle” is a bullish pattern that resembles a cup with a handle
According to CoinMarketCap data, Cardano is down nearly 9% in the last 24 hours at $0.50. The bulls locally capitulated after an unsuccessful attempt to push the price above $0.613 on May 16.
On the daily chart, the pullback from the Nov. 9, 2021, high of $2.38 and the recovery in late March followed by another round of declines resembles a “Cup and Handle” pattern.

The “Cup and Handle” pattern is a bullish pattern that resembles a cup with a handle, where the cup is in the shape of a “u” and the handle has a slight downward drift. The consolidation period is captured within the handle, which is usually followed by a breakout. The target for the cup-and-handle formation is the height of the cup, plus the breakout point of the handle.
For this pattern to gain strength, Cardano bulls might need to squash the horizontal barrier near the daily MA 50 at $0.85. Above that, another barrier is located at the daily MA 200 at $1.19. Rising above these constraints might imply a 100% rally for the eighth largest cryptocurrency, Cardano.
Cardano recently found support for declines near the $0.39 level. Otherwise, if a retest of this level is necessitated in the coming days and the resilience of this support is confirmed, a new high might be attained soon.
