How the Latest US Inflation Data Influences the Price of Cardano

The price of ADA fell sharply on Tuesday, September 13th, after the latest American inflation data. It fell from a high of $0.5235 to a low of $0.4715. As a result, the price is now also below the lines of the moving averages of the last 25 and 50 days. The decline in Cardano’s price was also in line with the performance of other cryptocurrencies. Bitcoin fell from over $22,000 to $21,445.

New inflation data from the US

The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) released the latest inflation data from the United States on Tuesday. The figures showed that headline consumer inflation grew to 0.1% from 0.0% in July. This increase was better than the median estimate of -0.1%.

Year-over-year inflation rose 8.3%, slightly lower than the previous month’s 8.5%. The decline was above the median estimate of 8.1%.

Meanwhile, core inflation rose from 0.3% to 0.6%, above the median estimate of 0.3%. This increase corresponded to a year-on-year rise of 6.3%.

Analysts had expected inflation to fall in August. In addition, prices for key goods such as motor vehicles and gasoline fell significantly in August. The average price of gasoline fell from $5 to $3.8.

As a result, analysts believe the Federal Reserve will continue to raise the federal funds rate in the coming months. It has already raised rates by 225 basis points and begun implementing quantitative tightening. There is now a likelihood that the Fed will raise rates by 0.75% at its next meeting this month.

The decline in Cardano’s price was also in line with the performance of other cryptocurrencies. Bitcoin fell from over $22,000 to $21,445, while the Ethereum price declined from $1,700 to $1,620. The same is true for U.S. stocks, with the Dow Jones and Nasdaq 100 falling 560 and 340 points, respectively. Stocks have a close correlation with cryptocurrencies.

Cardano price forecast

On the price chart, it can be seen that the ADA price fell sharply on Tuesday, September 13th, after the latest American inflation data. It fell from a high of $0.5235 to a low of $0.4715. As a result, the price is now also below the lines of the moving averages of the last 25 and 50 days.

Cardano then moved to the lower side of the ascending channel shown in blue. The MACD has moved below the neutral zone. Therefore, it is likely that the coin will continue to fall as sellers target the important support at $0.450. A rise above the resistance at $0.50 would disprove the bearish view.
