Chart Wars – Dog Fight Edition: Will Dogecoin or Shiba Inu Cryptos first break with this pattern? – Dogecoin – United States dollar ($ DOGE), Shiba Inu ($ SHIB)

Dogecoin (CRYPTO: DOGE) and Shiba inu (CRYPTO: SHIB) have recently traded in unison despite the fact that enthusiasts of each cryptocurrency remain in fierce competition with each other.

Each of the last seven crypto candlesticks printed on the daily chart is almost identical and on Friday both Dogecoin and Shiba Inu appeared to be printing a reversal signal, albeit slightly differently. If the reversal candlesticks are recognized, Dogecoin and Shiba Inu could experience an uptrend change.

It should be noted that events affecting the direction of general markets can quickly invalidate patterns, especially in the historically volatile crypto industry. As the saying goes, “the trend is your friend until it isn’t” and any trader position should have a clear stop in place and manage their risk versus their reward.

Both cryptos have spent the last six 24-hour trading sessions moving sideways to the left side of the chart to consolidate the December 4 crypto market flash crash when Bitcoin fell more than 20% before rebounding slightly. . The flash crash was slightly milder for Shiba Inu, who fell about 27% on that date compared to Dogecoin’s 32% slide.
