A new monthly high is formed near $0.0055 and the price is currently trimming gains. It seems like the bulls are facing a strong resistance near the $0.0050 weekly hurdle. It corrected below the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent rally from the $0.0011 swing low to $0.0055 high.

If there is a weekly close above the $0.0050 resistance level, there are chances of a sustained upward move. The next major resistance is seen near the $0.0055 and $0.0058 levels, followed by $0.0062.

Dips Supported in DOGE

If DOGE price corrects lower, it is likely to remain supported near the $0.0040 level. The next major support is near the $0.0034 level (the recent breakout zone) or the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent rally from the $0.0011 swing low to $0.0055 high.
