Metrics Signal Impending Breakout
The current state of the cryptocurrency market appears to be one of general consolidation when viewed through the lens of the price action of the many different cryptocurrencies that are tracked by Coinmarketcap.
Crypto market caps seem to be running out of steam after a four-week consecutive rally. However, Dogecoin’s market value has been increasing over the past week, bucking the trend of most other cryptocurrencies in the top 10 by market size, which has all shown a decline in their market caps over the past week.
Dogecoin has finally broken out of its narrow trading range in the weekly candle chart, surging over 45% in the past month. Several catalysts have contributed to this impending breakout, one of which is an increased trading activity. Another catalyst is the announcement of Astrobotic’s plan to send a physical Dogecoin token to the moon in December.
Whale movements have also contributed for the most part. According to on-chain data from crypto analytics platform Santiment, the cumulative balance of wallets holding 10 million to 1 billion DOGE has increased from 44.63 billion DOGE tokens on November 1 to a cumulative balance of 47.38 billion DOGE tokens on November 17th. As a result, these large holders have increased their holdings by 2.75 billion DOGE, worth approximately $231 million at the crypto’s current price.
How High Can The Dogecoin Price Go?
The technical indicators for Dogecoin are looking quite bullish right now. The short 10-day Moving Average has climbed steadily above the longer 21-day Moving Average since a bullish cross on October 23 last month, indicating the bulls still have major control over the market. A continued bullish momentum could see the crypto break various price resistances, the first being the $0.87 level.
Doge is trading at $0.08440 at the time of writing. The next hurdle is to break above $0.09 and then move towards $0.1. According to IntoTheBlock’s Global In/Out Of The Money metric, about 1.58 million addresses are still waiting for DOGE to climb above their minimum buying price of $0.858 before making a profit.
