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

The almost complete retracement meant that Dogecoin likely traded within a range and was not in a strong trend. The Relative Strength Index (RSI) oscillated from strongly bullish to strongly bearish momentum even though DOGE has not displayed a longer-term trend since mid-November. The On-Balance Volume (OBV) also sank beneath a level of support from late November.

Together, they suggested that the sellers were dominant. A daily session close beneath $0.071 would likely initiate a leg downward for DOGE. However, brave bulls can look to bid the asset within this zone.

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