Dogecoin is still trading at a lower range than expected and this has triggered a wave of bearishness among investors. Despite previously breaking through the $0.1 level late last year, it was unable to maintain the bullish momentum, especially as indicators are turning quite bearish. In this vein, one crypto analyst has presented a bearish short-term for the asset which is still ranging through low levels.
Dogecoin Gearing Up For Massive 25% Crash
In an analysis posted on the TradingView website, crypto analyst Alan Santana has sounded a warning alarm for the Dogecoin price going forward. According to the analysis, there could be a massive crash ahead for the meme coin.
The chart shows that the Dogecoin price has been trending lower since it first crossed $0.1 in early December. This has led to lower highs, a trend that has been historically bearish for any cryptocurrency and not just DOGE.
Not only has the asset been making lower highs, leading to a steady downtrend, but there has also been a significant drop in its trading volume over this time. This coupled with the lower lows and the endless sea of red on the chart, Santana believes that this has all the makings of a crash. Looking at the expectations for the said crash, the crypto analyst expects that the price will go from above $0.09 to as low as $0.07. In this case, a 25% crash will be the case.
However, it is not all bearish as the analyst expects a quick recovery following this crash. “ It is very slow now but it will speed up. We will get a major drop, BOOM! Flash crash and then a long-drawn-out recovery on the way up,” Santana said.
DOGE Failing To Hold Up On The Charts
Dogecoin’s less-than-excellent performance has continued to threaten its position on the list of largest cryptocurrencies by market cap. After failing to move, it has fallen behind assets such as Solana and Avalanche, both of which have seen at least a 500% increase so far this year.
Currently, Dogecoin is the 10th-largest cryptocurrency in the market with a market cap of $13.2 billion. But even then, it is continuing to lose dominance in the market as coins like Tron’s TRX and Polkadot’s DOT continue to creep up.
Both of these digital assets are around $3 billion shy of overtaking Dogecoin. DOT’s market cap is currently sitting at $11 billion while TRX is at $9.7 billion. If Santana’s analysis proves true and DOGE records a 25% crash, then it could fall out of the top 10 cryptocurrencies by market cap for the first time in over a year.
