According to seasoned trader Peter Brandt, Cardano might require a close above $0.54 (June 16 high) to restore bullish momentum, but a bearish technical analysis pattern on the daily timeframe poses a threat to drive the price of Cardano even lower first.
Potentially the very definition of "UGLY" in a picture unless Jun 16 high is violated to upside $ADA— Peter Brandt (@PeterLBrandt) July 11, 2022

The cryptocurrency market remains under selling pressure, with market experts opining that the bearish trend might continue as long as stock markets are chasing new lows. Charles Hoskinson, the founder of Cardano, predicted the bear market months in advance while discussing the underperformance of the native ADA cryptocurrency.
Hoskinson agreed that no announcement could change anything. Therefore, despite the protocol's developing technical functionalities and the expanding community, the ADA price might continue to struggle to gain any traction.
ADA has posted underwhelming performance so far in 2022 after recording significant gains in the past year, and it is currently down 85.71% from its record high of near $3.
Cardano needs to close above $0.54 to reverse outlook
Veteran trader Peter Brandt offers insight on the key level that Cardano needs to overcome to reclaim a positive outlook—the June 16 high at around $0.54. The continuation of a head and shoulders pattern on the daily chart, a potentially bearish signal, was pointed out by Brandt.
