An analyst has explained using a pattern that Dogecoin could be off on its next bull run if a certain level can be reclaimed.
Dogecoin Descending Triangle Could Hint At A Bullish Breakout
In a new post on X, analyst Ali discussed where DOGE could head next from here. Sharing the below chart, the analyst notes, “Dogecoin is approaching the apex of this multi-year descending triangle formation.”

A “descending triangle” pattern is a popular tool used in technical analysis created using two lines. The first line, the upper level, is drawn by connecting consecutive local tops, each lower than the last. The other line, the horizontal level, is made by joining bottoms.
This triangle is often used as a bearish predictor, as the price moves in an overall downward trajectory inside the triangle. A break below the lower level can signify that the bearish downtrend is here to stay for the asset.
However, a breakout above the upper level is generally a bullish sign, with the wider trend observing a reversal. From the chart, it’s visible that Dogecoin has been unable to find any break above this descending triangle pattern that has been stuck inside for more than two years.
The asset has continued to find resistance at the upper level, but the coin hasn’t retested the lower bound for a while now. The memecoin is continuing to stay close to the upper trendline.
As the analyst has mentioned, the asset is now close to the triangle’s end. “A weekly candlestick close above $0.0835 could trigger the beginning of a new DOGE bull run, potentially toward $1,” explains Ali.
Such a rally to $1 from this level would imply returns of almost 1100%, while from the price that DOGE currently trades at, it would be a whopping 1566% jump.
However, the analyst also tells traders to be cautious about the 0.04817 support level, as “any sign of weakness around this level could lead to a new yearly low.”
It remains to be seen how the Dogecoin price will develop shortly, especially given that it’s now fast closing towards the end of the triangle.
Earlier today, false news broke out that the iShares Bitcoin spot ETF was approved by the US SEC, and the cryptocurrency market responded with a sharp rally. As traders realized that the rumor was baseless, the assets all retraced back to the levels they were at before the surge.
The graph below shows that Dogecoin is trading around $0.06 again, having fully retraced the sudden rally.
