Dogecoin (DOGE) Prices: Apr 1 – Apr 4

Dogecoin (DOGE): Key Trends And Highlights For April 4

  • The price of DOGE/USD began an uptrend on Apr 1.
  • Dogecoin is trading inside an ascending channel.
  • Bearish divergence is developing in the RSI.
  • There is support near $0.0026.

Ascending Channel

The price of DOGE/USD is analyzed at one-hour intervals from Apr 1 to Apr 4 using data from HitBTC. This is done in order to trace Dogecoin’s current trading pattern.

On Apr 1, the price made a low of $0.002. Since then, several market cycles have been completed with each low being higher than the previous one.

Tracing these lows gives us an ascending support line:

On Apr 1, the price made a high of $0.0026. A gradual decrease ensued, followed by a gradual increase. The price created several higher highs.

Tracing these highs gives us an ascending resistance line.

The support and resistance lines combine to create an ascending channel:

The channel is a neutral pattern, making price breakouts and breakdowns equally likely. However, since the channel is facing upward, gradual increases at the rate predicted by the channel are to be expected.

Dogecoin has increased at the rate predicted by the channel despite volatility therein. Its most recent spike brought prices near the resistance line. Thus far, there has not been a breakout above resistance.

Based on this pattern, DOGE/USD may drop back toward the support line of the channel in the near future. However, a breakout could lead to accelerated price increases.

Bearish Divergence

In order to better assess future price fluctuations, we incorporate technical indicators into our analysis.

About the Indicators: The relative strength index (RSI) is an indicator which calculates the size of the changes in price in order to determine oversold or overbought conditions in the market.
On Apr 1, the price made a high of $0.0026. It has been increasing since.
Similarly, the RSI made the first high on Apr 1. However, it has been creating lower values since.
This is known as bearish divergence and often precedes price decreases.

Based on this indicator, it is likely that the price will fall down to the support line of the channel.

Possible Reversal

Resistance and support areas are created when the price visits the same level several times. They can provide reversal areas in case a breakout or breakdown occurs.

The closest support area is found near $0.0026. If a breakdown occurs, it is likely that a reversal could occur in this area. Though we are expecting a drop toward support, we do not expect a necessary breakdown.

If Dogecoin were to reach this level, we would have likely already begun a significant reversal. We do not believe this to be a likely situation.

Summary of Analysis

Based on our analysis, the price of DOGE is likely to fall down to the support line of the channel before increasing at the steady rate predicted by the channel.
