Dogecoin price to find meaningful support
Dogecoin price has formed a parallel channel on the daily chart, suggesting that the token is range-bound. The toughest area of resistance appears to be at $0.26, indicating that the bulls may be planning a 42% upswing.
Although the prevailing chart pattern suggests that there is more upside potential in Dogecoin price, the token may drop lower first to find meaningful support.
The first line of defense for Dogecoin price is at the 21-day Simple Moving Average (SMA) at $0.17, then at the lower boundary of the prevailing chart pattern at $0.15.
Should Dogecoin price manage to discover reliable support at the downside trend line of the governing technical pattern, DOGE bulls can expect a bounce to reverse the period of underperformance.
The first area of resistance is at the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement level at $0.18, then at the 50-day SMA at $0.20. Additional resistance will emerge at the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement level at $0.21.
