DOGE, the native cryptocurrency that powers the Dogecoin blockchain, was last changing hands about 4.5% lower on the day on Monday just to the south of the $0.09 level, extending on Sunday’s 3.6% decline.
Though Dogecoin has managed to recover from earlier session lows under $0.0850, at current levels in the $0.0880s, the cryptocurrency is still trading about 20% lower versus its earlier monthly highs just above $0.11.
Its gains versus its November lows in the low-$0.07s, while still decent at around 23%, have been substantially eroded. As a result, price predictions have become somewhat more pessimistic.
Price Prediction – Bears Eye Retest of November Lows
Monday’s drop marks a break below an important area of technical support in the form of the August highs (around $0.0910) and the 62.8% Fibonacci retracement level back from the early November highs around $0.16 to the annual lows just under $0.05.
Dogecoin bears will be targeting a retest of key next key support in the low $0.07s, where the 200-Day Moving Average (DMA) and November double-bottom lows reside.
Looking ahead, Dogecoin will be taking its cue from broader macro themes this week, just like the broader cryptocurrency market. And it’s a big week on the macro front. US CPI data for November is out on Tuesday, with investors hoping for further evidence of inflation falling quickly back to the Fed’s 2.0% target.
The Fed will then announce its latest interest rate decision alongside fresh economic and interest rate path forecasts, plus the usual press conference with Fed head Jerome Powell. The BoE and ECB will also be deciding on interest rates this week, and preliminary PMI data for December is out.
Cramer Says Dogecoin Headed For Zero
Last week, famous US TV personality and host of the CNBC show Mad Money, Jim Cramer, made headlines by criticizing cryptocurrency and urging investors to sell their holdings. According to Cramer, “it’s never too late to sell an awful position… And that’s what you have if you own these so-called digital assets”. Cramer added that the market could plunge further in 2023, and many digital assets could hit zero
Cramer singled out Dogecoin, alongside a few other cryptocurrencies such as Cardano, Ripple and Polygon. He called the world’s largest meme coin by market capitalization a “scam” and a “con”. Crypto Twitter hit back against Cramer’s remarks.
Michi Lumin argued on Twitter that Cramer is either “misinformed or willfully incorrect” on Dogecoin after explaining in a thread how a decentralized blockchain protocol without significant insider allocation can’t be defined as either a scam or con.
Cramer – Twitter’s Favorite Inverse Indicator
Throughout his long career as a financial news TV host, Jim Cramer has never been afraid to throw out his market calls. Not all of these calls have gone well, the most notorious being when Cramer urged Bear Sterns investors not to sell their stock in the midst of the 2008/9 global financial crisis that eventually led to the bankruptcy of the company and its stock going to zero.
Over the years, some have started viewing Cramer as a good counter indicator – i.e., some people think the market is likely to do the opposite of what Cramer predicts. He has subsequently become something of a meme on financial/crypto Twitter.
Dogecoin bulls will be hoping that Cramer’s call for DOGE to hit 0 actually means that Dogecoin hits $1. In fairness to the CNBC presenter, Cramer has managed to accrue a fortune valued at around $150 million, suggesting his skills as an investor can’t be all bad.
