Dogecoin continues its consolidation

Dogecoin (DOGE) is stuck at the $0.23 price level today. The cryptocurrency has been trading between the moving averages since October 4. The price of DOGE is above the 21-day line SMA and below the 50-day line SMA.

The altcoin shows a trend when the moving averages are broken. For example, on October 6, buyers pushed the altcoin above the 50-day line SMA, but were stopped at resistance at $0.27. The cryptocurrency would have risen to $0.32 or $0.35 if buyers had been successful above this line. Nevertheless, the price of DOGE fell back to the support of the 21-day line SMA and continued its consolidation above this line. This is an indication that Dogecoin lacks buyers at higher price levels. However, if the bears break below the 21-day line SMA, the market will fall to a low of $0.19.
