Dogecoin daily chart
The daily chart for Dogecoin highlighted the descent of the price since the month of May. DOGE’s falling price was enclosed within a descending channel. DOGE tested the support level at $0.2270 and breached it once. With the asset once again at an inflection point, it could test this level once again.
Dogecoin’s market continued to maintain high volatility, something that may have pushed DOGE’s value lower on the charts. As the asset continued to trade close to its support level, the market was noting selling pressure rise as well. This rise in pressure could push DOGE towards a 25% dump to $0.16623.
The Directional Movement Index underlined the prominence of southbound pressure in the market. The -DI was over the +DI, a sign of downward pressure. However, the gap between the two lines had fallen. This suggested that even though the downward pressure was dominant, it had significantly reduced too.
