  • Dogecoin price has been shaping a complex top with support holding for the last several days.
  • DOGE trades below the anchored VWAP, reinforcing the bearish turn in the outlook.
  • IntoTheBlock IOMAP data clearly illustrates significant resistance between $0.32 and $0.34.

Dogecoin price was not captivated by the Bitcoin spike of 30% since June 8, opting for consolidation above a short-term support level that will define the future of DOGE. A failure to maintain the support increases the probability that the meme token tests the May 19 low of $0.195.

Dogecoin price has no room for failures

Despite the impressive Bitcoin breach of the psychologically important $40,000, Dogecoin price has not leveraged the BTC rally for a sizeable rally. It is a disappointing response to the most important cryptocurrency event since the May 23 low. Such a withdrawal suggests that DOGE searches for a different catalyst or is more likely swayed by a bearish objective.

Dogecoin price has suggested many potential patterns since the May 19 crash, but none has carried the staying power to reach completion. Today, Dogecoin price illustrates a complex topping formation extending back to May 23, with a clear support line that DOGE is currently holding. The level marks a line in the sand for the altcoin and is the most important barrier to a test of $0.195.

A daily close below the June 13 low of $0.287 will free Dogecoin price to initiate the decline to the May 19 low. The May 23 low of $0.246 will be notable support, but the downside momentum accumulated in the complex topping process should best it.

After the May 19 low, Dogecoin price has a clear path to $0.195, representing a 36% decline from the support level. If the slide is within the context of a breakdown in the cryptocurrency complex, DOGE may target the 200-day simple moving average (SMA) at $0.143.

To shake up the bearish outlook, Dogecoin price will need a daily close above the anchored value-weighted average price (anchored VWAP) at $0.353. DOGE will still have overcome the 50-day SMA at $0.403 and the 2021 rising trend line at $0.426 before a credible bullish outlook can gain traction.

According to the current IntoTheBlock In/Out of the Money Around Price (IOMAP) data, Dogecoin price is suffocated by resistance (out of the money addresses) between $0.318 and $0.337, where 196.42k addresses hold 15.36 billion DOGE.  

The range reveals a challenging journey for Dogecoin to defeat the anchored VWAP at $0.353.
