- Dogecoin price is trading above a demand zone, extending from $0.224 to $0.289.
- If the bid orders pile up, DOGE could rally 37% to tag $0.40.
- A decisive close below $0.212 will invalidate the upswing narrative and kick-start a sell-off.
Dogecoin price is fast approaching a critical demand zone that will decide the meme coin’s fate for the foreseeable future. A bounce from this pivotal area will allow buyers a chance to push DOGE to pre-crash levels and higher, but a failure will take it to lows, last seen in mid-April.
Dogecoin price at crossroads
Dogecoin price has dropped roughly 32% since May 20. The crash on May 19 seems to have taken a massive toll on altcoins, which have plummeted 50% to 70%, undoing almost all of the gains accrued over the past year.
After the recent downfall, DOGE is currently hovering above a support area that stretches from $0.224 to $0.289. This demand zone is a perfect setup for the buyers to make a comeback. A potential spike in buying pressure that causes Dogecoin price to bounce from the said floor might trigger a 37% upswing to $0.40.
If the bullish momentum persists after hitting this point, investors could see the meme-themed cryptocurrency rally another 21% to tag the lower boundary of the supply area ranging from $0.481 to $0.515.
DOGE/USDT 12-hour chart
The upswing narrative detailed above depends on the assumption that the buyers manage to pull their act and bounce from the demand zone, extending from $0.224 to $0.289. If the bulls fall short or fail to produce enough momentum to trigger an upswing, a sell-off will likely ensue.
While a breakdown of the $0.224 level will extinguish the bulls’ hope of a rally, a decisive 12-hour candlestick below the support floor at $0.212 will invalidate the bullish thesis.
In such a case, market participants could see Dogecoin price fall 25% to tag the first meaningful demand level at $0.159, a breakdown of which will result in a brutal crash to the support area ranging from $0.106 to $0.145, formed during mid-April.
