Judging from the 4-hour candlestick chart, Dogecoin (DOGE) has broken through the symmetrical triangle pattern but it suffered strong seller resistance at $0.35.
After April 20, Dogecoin suffered considerable losses after trying to touch a record-high of $0.45 without success. Thus, Dogecoin formed a double-top M-shaped pattern.
DOGE’s price has been hovering around the neckline of $0.26 for a long time. The bulls are saving power near this level to prepare for the next breakthrough. Motivated by Elon Musk's tweets, the bulls successfully broke through the resistance level of $0.26 and flipped it into a support level.
The transaction price of DOGE/USD is hovering above the Exponential Moving Average ribbon. Both the upward sloping moving average and the bullish MACD indicate that the bulls are currently dominating the market.
The stochastic RSI is turning downwards and stepping out 80 marks from the overbought zone，which is the bearish side of the oscillator. The bullish momentum is not strong enough to prompt DOGE higher. If a large number of sell orders are triggered, then DOGE/USD will test the 20 day-Exponential Moving Average of $0.29 support level.
If the bulls fail to defend $0.29, the crypto price will retreat to the neckline of 0.26 in the upcoming days and retest it.
