Recently, BTC’s price encountered resistance at $28.5K, taking a dip towards the pivotal $28K mark. Similarly, the meme coin sector is experiencing challenges. Top meme coins, Dogecoin and Shiba Inu are currently experiencing slight declines near their resistance points as sellers find opportunities from price spikes.
Sellers Prepare For A Downward Correction
Over the past 24 hours, Dogecoin and Shiba Inu have showcased strong performance. With traders turning their attention to meme coins after Bitcoin’s surge past $28K, the market’s trading volume has notably increased. However, the buying pressure was short-lived as data from Coinglass indicates that Dogecoin saw long positions worth $400K being liquidated, while SHIB experienced a $35K long-liquidation. This implies that investors are cashing in on the gains from the recent upswing.
Dogecoin (DOGE) Price Analysis
In recent hours, Dogecoin’s price movement has become bearish as it failed to surge above the level of $0.065. As a result, sellers opened short positions, and the DOGE price is now on a downward correction, hovering around the EMA20 trend line. As of writing, DOGE price trades at $0.0626, surging over 1.09% in the last 24 hours.
The 20-day EMA stands at $0.062 and appears to be leveling off, while the RSI has declined and hovers just above the midpoint, signifying an equilibrium between buyers and sellers. A strong rebound by buyers above the 20-day EMA could mark the beginning of a renewed momentum, with the DOGE price possibly targeting the immediate resistance of $0.065 and then aiming for $0.07.
Conversely, to counter this upward trajectory, bears would need to pull the price below $0.059 quickly. If they succeed, the meme coin might descend to the next significant support level at $0.055.
Shiba Inu (SHIB) Price Analysis
SHIB price witnessed robust purchases today as the price reached a high of $0.0000076. However, bears soon made their entry to plunge the meme coin. As a result, the SHIB price declined below the 23.6% Fib channel and reached the bottom of EMA100 to initiate a minor rebound. This suggests that buyers are capitalizing on price dips. Currently, SHIB price is trading at $0.00000742, surging over 0.55% from yesterday’s rate.
The extended wicks on the candlesticks indicate bearish selling around the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement mark of $0.0000076. However, on the bullish side, the price is holding above the immediate support level.
For a further upward trajectory, buyers need to send the price beyond the crucial price level of $0.0000078, paving the way for a potential retest of the resistance at $0.0000085.
The RSI level has declined from its overbought region, and it currently holds momentum above the midline at 50, suggesting a rebound for the SHIB price. If SHIB’s price declines and fails to rebound from $0.0000071, it will trigger an intense bearish rally, touching the ground at $0.0000064.
