Dogecoin                          

Dogecoin was range-bound for the better part of Monday. By the end of the day, it was down by about 1%. 

Dogecoin started Monday trading bearish after it pushed through the 50.0% Fibonacci support at $0.1758 within the first hour of the day.

However, just before daybreak, selling volumes dropped. What followed was range-bound trading until early afternoon. 

It is at this point that bears attempted to retake control. However, bearish momentum did not last as two hours later, Dogecoin hit strong support at $0.16689 on the 61.8% Fibonacci support. 

Dogecoin then bounced off this support, and towards the end of the day, came close to retesting the 50.0% Fibonacci, now resistance at $0.1758.

The move was sharply rejected, though, and Dogecoin retested the 61.8% Fibonacci support at $0.1668 just three hours to the end of the day. Dogecoin then bounced off this support and closed the day in the green. 

Dogecoin started Tuesday trading bullish, a continuation of the upside momentum that had built up in late Monday trading. 

However, just two hours into the day, bulls lost momentum. What followed was a correction that saw Dogecoin retest the 61.8% Fibonacci support just before daybreak.  

The 6.1% Fibonacci support proved quite strong, though, and Dogecoin was gaining upside momentum when going to press.
