Dogecoin has since mid-this week spiked incredibly, allowing bulls to regain some of the ground lost in May’s massive cryptocurrency crash. Dogecoin dropped to $0.21 before making a brief recovery, stepping above $0.4. However, it retreated and remained relatively consolidated between $0.28 and $0.35.
Coinbase Pro adding support for trading DOGE was a breath of fresh air to the popular meme coin. Investors welcomed the move with open arms, interpreting the event as validation of legitimacy. Moreover, some investors believe that Dogecoin could start being accepted as payment on many platforms, encouraging mainstream adoption.
Investors started depositing DOGE to Coinbase Pro addresses on June 1, but trading will commence on June 3 to allow for liquidity building. Several crypto and fiat pairs are available for buying and selling the meme coin.
Dogecoin settles above key technical levels
Following the upswing triggered by the listing news, Dogecoin extended the bullish leg significantly above $0.3. The 100 Simple Moving Average (SMA) and the 50 SMA hurdles have been overcome, allowing the up leg to stretch past $0.4.
DOGE/USD 12-hour chart
At the time of writing, DOGE trades at $0.42 while embracing the 50 SMA as immediate support. The Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) shows that the trend is in the bulls’ hands. With the MACD swinging into the positive region and widening the divergence from the signal line, Dogecoin is bound to soar past the immediate hurdle at $0.45 and perhaps set the pace for gains eyeing $0.6.
