ADA, LTC, DOGE, and XRP price
Cardano (ADA) is holding ground above the USD 1.22 level. An immediate resistance on the upside is near the USD 1.25 level. A close above the USD 1.25 level could start a decent increase. The next major resistance is near the USD 1.30 level, where the bears might take a stand.
