At least three market catalysts show that Dogecoin (DOGE) could climb by at least 50% by the end of Q3 2022.
Falling wedge breakout in play
Dogecoin has been painting a “falling wedge” pattern on its longer-timeframe charts since May 2021, hinting at the potential for a bullish reversal in the coming months.
Falling wedges appear when the price trends lower inside a range defined by two descending, converging trendlines. Their occurrence coincides with declining trade volumes, suggesting that trading activity slowed down due to the narrowing price range.
A break of the wedge to the upside, coupled with a rise in trading volumes, suggests the asset is breaking out. As a rule of technical analysis, a falling wedge breakout can push the price upward by as much as the maximum distance between the structure’s upper and lower trendline.
Applying the classic theory to Dogecoin suggests that it would rise toward $0.40 if the breakout occurs near the $0.14 level, or about 190% above today’s price.
At its worst, the falling wedge breakout could have DOGE’s price rally a little over 50% to $0.21, given its breakout point comes to be near the apex around $0.75.

Elon Musk’s Twitter acquisition
Earlier this week, Twitter announced that it had accepted Elon Musk’s bid to buy its social media platform for $4 billion. Dogecoin’s price reacted bullishly to the possibility that Musk would integrate DOGE as one of the official payment mediums for Twitter’s subscription services, based on his recent recommendations to the company’s board.

Noelle Acheson, head of market insights at Genesis Global Trading, noted that DOGE’s price rally gets its cues from “very much speculation,” given Musk still has to confirm whether or not he would add a Dogecoin payment option on Twitter.
“But the possibility, even if it is remote, is enough to get traders excited about the potential gain in DOGE adoption,” she told Bloomberg.
