  • Whale holdings dipped significantly over the week.
  • A section of the market was hopeful of a quick recovery to $0.20.

The world’s largest memecoin Dogecoin [DOGE] rose 2.11% in the last 24 hours of trading, spurring hopes of reversing the corrective action seen over the past week.

The dog-themed token plunged 14% in value in the last seven days, in line with the broader downturn among Ethereum [ETH]-based memecoins, data from CoinMarketCap showed.

As of this writing, it was exchanging hands at $0.18, with market participants anticipating a quick recovery to $0.20 and beyond.

The negative price action followed massive sell-offs by large holders of the coin. According to AMBCrypto’s analysis of Santiment’s data, number of wallets holding between 1,000 to 1 million coins dipped significantly over the week.

The drop in holdings came alongside jump in transactions worth more than $100,000, confirming that whales were dumping DOGE en masse.

However, a section of the market was hopeful of a quick rebound from this dip. A crypto trader shared their analysis highlighting DOGE’s resilience during the correction period. They also seemed confident of a bounce to $0.20 in the days ahead.

The trader’s optimism might not be unfounded. Using Hyblock Capital, AMBCrypto noticed a sharp increase in the number of long positions taken by whales on Binance, suggesting bullish expectations from DOGE.

What this meant was that the sell-offs discussed earlier could be a shakeout of over-leveraged longs.

To better understand DOGE’s next moves, AMBCrypto investigated some key technical indicators through TradingView.

The Relative Strength Index (RSI) ascended from the neutral 50 level, typically interpreted as a bullish signal.

The On Balance Volume (OBV) though, made lower highs and lower lows over the week.  The resemblance with DOGE’s price trend indicated a likely continuation of the downtrend.

The Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) line crossed below the signal line, suggesting that DOGE might dip further.
