Shiba Inu and Dogecoin prices struggle to comeback

Dog-themed cryptocurrencies Shiba Inu and Dogecoin are considered speculative for their massive volatility. However, in the ongoing cycle, Shiba-Inu-themed cryptocurrencies failed to survive the bloodbath. The two meme coins suffered a decline that wiped out double-digit profits amassed by holders in the last two weeks. 

Jerome Powell, chair of the US Federal Reserve shared a negative outlook on the US economy. Following Powell’s commentary on raising interest rates to control inflation, there was increased cautiousness among traders. Investors pulled out capital from Dogecoin and Shiba Inu, in response to the Federal Reserve’s hawkishness. 

Analysts evaluated the Shiba Inu price chart and identified that the token has successfully bounced off the local support level. At UToday, analysts noted that Shiba Inu is moving on the trendline support formed in July 2022. The line is the last line of support for SHIB as the 50-day exponential and regular moving averages fail to hold large selling pressure from whales.

Kelvin Maina, leading crypto analyst at InvestingCube noted that Dogecoin price started its recovery today. Despite a 91.3% decline from it’s all-time high, Dogecoin price has bullish potential according to analysts.

Several factors contributed to the decline in Dogecoin price, including the Federal Reserve’s hawkishness, whales shedding their portfolio and declining demand among investors. Maina argued that the DOGE price could decline to the $0.050 level. Once prices hit the support level, it can be considered a clear signal of further decline in DOGE. If Dogecoin price sustains above the support level and continues its uptrend, the outlook remains bullish.
