Dogecoin Price Forecast – Technical Outlook: Doge Violates $0.1685

Dogecoin price forecast is bearish on Tuesday as the pair has already violated the 0.1685 level. This support level was extended by a triple bottom pattern on the 4-hourly chart.  

Below this, the DOGE/USD has odds of continuing the selling trend until the next support level of 0.1445 level. The oscillator tool Stochastic is holding in a selling zone below 20, demonstrating an oversold scenario.  

Typically, the oversold market triggers profit-taking insecurities and bulls takeover for a while before further sell-off. If this happens today, the DOGE/USD may bounce off until the support become a resistance level of 0.1685.  

Bullish crossover of 0.1685 level can lead Doge price towards next resistance level of 0.1855 and 0.2045. Alternatively, the support prevails at 0.1441 and 0.1164 levels today.      

The DOGE/USD price forecast remains bearish because of the 50 periods EMA (Exponential Moving Average – Red Line). The 50 EMA is weighing on Doge and extending resistance at 0.1675 level. Consequently, the  forex trading  participants may look for placing a sell limit at 0.1675 to target 0.1440. All the best.
