Dogecoin Begins Massive Recovery Trend, But Can These Factors Drive A Rally To $0.2?

The Dogecoin price action in the past few days is showing signs of the crypto embarking on a bullish recovery. Particularly, DOGE has seen a strong uptick in trading volume in the last few days, fueled by an increase in activity from whale addresses. 

At the time of writing, DOGE spiked by over 6% in the past 24 hours to break over $0.09 for a brief moment. This spike in DOGE came despite the price of Bitcoin showcasing a weakening of bullish momentum at $52,000 and most cryptocurrencies sparking corrections, indicating a lingering bullish momentum among DOGE traders.

DOGE Recent Metrics Indicate Recovery Trend

Dogecoin mostly went through a lackluster price action throughout January, with the cryptocurrency ending the month at $0.07973, a negative 13% from its open price on January 1. The $0.079 price level acted as a major support, as DOGE started to rebound in early February after the formation of a double bottom. Consequently, DOGE technicals, transaction count, and price action pointed to a change in momentum and sentiment amongst traders.  

According to metrics from the on-chain analytics platform IntoTheBlock, the Dogecoin ecosystem has witnessed a lot of activity in the past month, processing more than 1 million transactions every day since the 30th of January. This increase in activity seems to have been reflected in the price of Dogecoin, with the cryptocurrency up by 11% since the beginning of February.

At the time of writing, DOGE’s trading volume from Coinmarketcap is approximately $824 million, an increase of over 129% in the past 24 hours. The majority of the recent increase in activity can be attributed to whales of large investors. 

According to Dogecoin whale data, whale transactions greater than $100,000 now stand at $2.53 billion in the past seven days. Notably, this transaction count from large investors reached 1,570 in the past 24 hours with a total volume of 15.88 billion DOGE. This huge surge of activity seems to be providing the cryptocurrency with a big boost, fueling an impressive recovery that could see it crossing the $0.1 threshold once more and possibly reaching the $0.2 price level.

DOGE Price Action – Rally To $0.2?

Dogecoin has started showing signs of life again, fueled in large part by whale activity. The crypto recently surged to $0.09115 in the past 24 hours. Although still up by 1% in the same timeframe, DOGE has since corrected by 4.5% and is currently trading at $0.08702. 

A minor support is at the $0.08693 price level, with metrics and general market sentiment pointing to continued bullish price action in the short time. The first price level would be the return to $0.09. If Dogecoin manages to maintain a stronghold above this key milestone, it is expected to create a more bullish momentum among traders which could see it breaking past above $0.1 for the first time in three months. 

This breakthrough over $0.11 could mark an important milestone for Dogecoin’s price trajectory, as the next target would be $0.2.
