- Dogecoin price dips below key $0.18 value area.
- Key resistance levels continue to drop and add pressure to any upside momentum.
- Failure to hold $0.18 could spell disaster.
Dogecoin price action has tested levels below the final support zone at $0.18. The early Saturday AM crypto crash sent Dogecoin in a free-fall below key support, but it has recovered a large amount of that crash. As a result, Dogecoin is still under threat of returning to single-digit levels.
Dogecoin price collapses over 40%
Dogecoin price has traded below the weekly Tenkan-Sen and Kijun-Sen for the past five consecutive weeks. During that time, it has tested the primary support level at the $0.18 level several times, but sellers have failed to step in to push Dogecoin off a cliff. As time has moved on, the near-term Ichimoku levels have crept closer and lower.
The road higher for Dogecoin is extremely difficult, and buyers who want to wait for a conservative entry will have a long wait ahead of them.
A conservative buy entry is at the $0.27 price level. If Dogecoin has a weekly candlestick close at or above $0.27, then that means it has closed above the weekly Tenkan-Sen, Kijun-Sen, and 2021 Volume Point Of Control. The Chikou Span will still be below the candlesticks and the close will still be below the Cloud, but a close at or above $0.27 begins the process of moving higher.
Dogecoin price will need to close, at a minimum, at $0.39 to fulfill all the requirements for an Ideal Bullish Ichimoku Breakout entry. While that does seem like a significant distance away, DOGE has made many massive moves higher than that in the past.

Downside risks, however, remain. The large, long, red rectangle on the chart represents the thinnest part of the 2021 Volume Profile. If Dogecoin has a daily or weekly candlestick close below the $0.175 price level, a flash-crash to the next high volume node at $0.08 is very likely.
