Dogecoin price rebounds 30% in two weeks

DOGE experienced a sharp drop in buying as its price dropped to around $0.10 two weeks ago, leading to a 30% recovery to $0.14 on March 27. Meanwhile, the retracement level The coin’s upside retracement stems from support forming a “falling wedge” set up, signaling an extended bullish reversal in the upcoming weekly sessions.

Specifically, a falling wedge pattern occurs when prices trend lower while oscillating between two converging, downward-sloping trendlines. In a perfect scenario, the setup results in the price breaking out of the descending range to the upside by the maximum distance between the wedge’s upper and lower trend lines.

DOGE’s bounce from the lower trendline of the wedge two weeks ago opens the possibility of a continuation of the upward trend towards the upper trendline – near $0.18. Therefore, a break of the upper trendline further sees Dogecoin’s price rise to $0.37, up more than 150% from today’s price.

Veteran investor Tom Bulkowski considers falling wedges a “bad performer” when predicting bullish chart patterns, noting that “failure breakeven rates are high and prices are low on average.” He cites a study of 800 trades showing that the probability of a falling wedge breakout meeting its upside target is close to 62%.

Additionally, Dogecoin’s track record of showing a period of high positive correlation with Bitcoin – at 0.94 from a perfect score of 1 on March 27 – also could limit its upside if the latter declines due to ongoing macroeconomic and geopolitical pressures.

Dogecoin’s latest rebound move now eyes a quick run-up towards the $0.15-0.19 area, a range encapsulating three psychological resistance levels: the 20-day exponential moving average (20-day EMA; the green wave), the 50-day EMA (the red wave), and the 0.618 Fib line (near $0.19) of the Fibonacci retracement graph — all shown in the chart below.

A strong pullback, accompanied by a rise in volume from the said resistance area, could have DOGE test the 0.786 Fib line near $0.10 as its interim downside target. Conversely, a decisive move above the range could result in an extended upside momentum towards $0.24, focusing on $0.30 and $0.37 (also the falling wedge target).
