Most of the popular currencies are still under a lot of pressure at this time. This is primarily because there is a massive amount of pressure on Bitcoin, which eventually pushes all altcoins down in the process. In the case of Dogecoin, things are not looking all that great, and the dip below $0.003 is in effect. Based on the current circumstances, it would seem this trend may remain in place for quite some to come.
It is only normal there is a lot of negative pressure on Bitcoin. The cryptocurrency world has been under fire from all angles, and there is no relief in sight whatsoever. In fact, there is a very good chance the year 2018 will not end on a high, despite things looking slightly more positive just a few days ago. It is uncanny how these markets can be subdued for some time, although this is not the first extended bear trend whatsoever.
