Based on the late November move from $0.071 to $0.119, a set of Fibonacci retracement levels (yellow) were drawn. At the time of writing, the price has fallen below the 78.6% retracement level. It met bullish order block, highlighted in cyan, above the $0.072 support level.

The almost complete retracement meant that Dogecoin was probably trading within a range and was not in a strong trend. The Relative Strength Index (RSI) fluctuated from strongly bullish to strongly bearish momentum even though the DOGE has not shown a long-term trend since mid-November. On-Balance Volume (OBV) also dipped below a support level from late November.

Together, they suggested that the sellers were dominant. A daily session close below $0.071 is likely to initiate a leg down for DOGE. However, brave bulls may look to bid on the asset within this zone.

The $0.8 level was turned into support before the rise to $0.119 a couple of weeks ago. As a horizontal level as well as a Fibonacci retracement level, it had significance. A retest as support in the coming days could offer a buying opportunity. Take-profit targets will be the bearish breaker at $0.091, and $0.11 highs. Below $0.072 lies the next support level at $0.065.
