The retracement below 78.6% meant that Dogecoin could trade within a range. Long positions inflated massively in December, so bulls should remain cautious

Bitcoin had a quiet few days as volatility subsided over the weekend. It could return with a vengeance on Monday. Stock market indices like the S&P 500 have been bearish over the past week and December 19 could set the trend for the next week.

Dogecoin fell back into a support area of ​​$0.072 and saw a 4% gain over the past two days, but Open Interest was weak. However, it still encountered resistance at $0.08, a level that was significant over the past month. Can bulls regain this level and push higher?

Based on the move from $0.071 to $0.119 at the end of November, a series of Fibonacci retracement levels (yellow) was drawn. At the time of writing, the price has fallen below the 78.6% retracement level. It hit a bullish order block, highlighted in cyan, above the $0.072 support level.

The almost complete retracement meant that Dogecoin was probably trading within a range and not in a strong trend. The Relative Strength Index (RSI) has fluctuated from strong bullish to strong bearish momentum, although DOGE has shown no longer-term trend since mid-November. The On-Balance Volume (OBV) also fell below a level of support from the end of November.

Together they suggested that the sellers were dominant. A daily session close to $0.071 would likely trigger a downward move for DOGE. However, brave bulls can try to provide the asset within this zone.

The $0.8 level was flipped to $0.119 a few weeks ago ahead of the rise. It made sense both as a horizontal level and as a Fibonacci retracement level. A retest as support in the coming days could provide a buying opportunity. Take profit targets would be the bearish breaker at $0.091 and the $0.11 highs. Below $0.072, the next support level is at $0.065.

Since the beginning of December, Dogecoin has seen a session with a sharp price drop. These were accompanied by the liquidation of long positions worth millions of dollars. During the fall from $0.119 on December 5 to $0.075 on December 16, Open Interest also saw a decline.

This indicated that long positions were being discouraged. The funding rate remained positive, which also showed that most of the market was not starting to pile up in short positions.
