Breakout everyone waited for
As we have mentioned in U.Today's articles numerous times, both Shiba Inu and Dogecoin were on the verge of a breakout or at least a volatility spike in either direction as they have been showing an extremely anemic performance in the last 30 days of trading.
On August 14, DOGE successfully broke through the symmetrical triangle that acted as a consolidation range for the coin that has not shown us a proper price performance in the last few months.
In mid- or long-term time frames, there are no resistances that might hold Dogecoin from moving further up unless the rally fades due to the lack of trading volume, which remains on a relatively low level compared to bull market values.
Dogecoin's biggest rival
With Shiba Inu dropping on the market, we saw a split in the memecoin industry, as some preferred the old classic and others chose the exposure to extremely volatile and risky SHIB tokens.
Today, the volatility of the token dropped to an average level which exceeds Dogecoin's. In the last 24 hours, Shiba Inu gained more than 22% to its value, becoming one of the best performing assets on the cryptocurrency market.
The main question for investors now is, how long will this rally hold, as we are not yet seeing a spike in the trading volume or market inflows and a reversal is more than possible once the weekend trading session is over?
