Seemingly inevitably, DOGE price has suffered its own fairs share of downtrend, recording a 10% deficit within the daily timeframe.

Dogecoin Whales Continue on a $25 million Buying Spree

But interestingly, on-chain data shows that a group of strategic whale investors have continued buying the dip rather than join the ongoing market sell-off.

The Santiment chart above depicts real-time changes in the balance of whale wallets holding at least 10 million DOGE (~$800,000). 

The red trendline shows that the highlighted whale wallets held a cumulative balance of 15.03 billion DOGE as of Feb 12. But at press time on Feb 21, their balance have skyrocketed to 15.34 billion DOGE. 

This implies that crypto whales have acquired 340 million DOGE worth approximately $25.8 million within the last 10 trading days dating back Feb 21.

In an unusual trend, as the memecoin market downturn set-in on Wednesday, rather than join the sell-off the whales have held their positions. 

If the whales opt to capitalize on the pull-back to buy the dip, its only a matter of time before DOGE price enters a rebound toward $0.10.

Dogecoin Price Forecast: $0.089 is the Key Resistance to Beat

Drawing inferences from on-chain data analysis, Dogecoin whales buying spree could set DOGE price back on the front foot, possibly retesting the $0.01 area in the coming days.

However, the Bollinger band technical indicator suggests that the bulls now face major resistance around $0.089. 

At press time, Dogecoin is currently trading at $0.083, just above the 20-day SMA of $0.082 signaling that the bulls are still in control.

A decisive breakout above the $0.089 sell-wall mounted at the upper Bollinger Band of $0.089 could trigger a major bullish upswing toward $0.1 as predicted.

Still, there’s a chance the bears could negate this narrative if the DOGE price loses the $0.07 support for the first time in 2024. However, as depicted by the lower Bollinger band, the support buy-wall at $0.074 could pose a significant challenge in that scenario.
