Pepecoin (PEPE) Price Action Points to a Potential 70% Drop

Pepecoin price has dropped by more than 70% three weeks after reaching an all-time high of $0.00000449. And according to a mix of technical and fundamental indicators, Memecoin could drop further in the coming days.

PEPE charts show a classic bearish reversal pattern

From a technical perspective, Pepecoin (PEPE) price is likely to decline sharply from the current levels. At the heart of this bearish outlook is the classic head-and-shoulders (H&S) pattern.

Analysts using technical analysis view the H&S pattern as a bearish reversal indicator for the inexperienced. It is formed when price forms three spikes above a common neckline support; The middle peak, called the “head”, is higher than the other two, called the “left shoulder” and the “right shoulder”.

The H&S pattern disappears after the price breaks below the neckline. Meanwhile, as a rule of technical analysis, traders measure the downside target of the pattern by adding the maximum head-to-neckline distance at the break point.

On May 22, PEPE broke below its H&S neckline, around $0.00000156. This brings the downside target for June near $0.00000041, which is almost 70% downside from the current price level.

Meanwhile, PEPE tests $0.00000082 for June recovery as H&S outage may end up in the middle. This level, about 30% below the current price level, served as support in early May; This further coincides with the 0.786 Fibonacci line of PEPE.

On the other hand, if PEPE retests the H&S neckline as price support, the outage scenario risks being invalidated.

Will existing PEPE holders dump?

Despite the recent losses, PEPE is still trading up 4,000% when measured from the first price of $0.00000044. As a result, further price declines could prompt existing PEPE holders to lock in profits, increasing the bearish bias.

This has translated into lower trading volumes on crypto exchanges, which is another bearish sign for existing token holders.

PEPE could avoid a bearish outlook in the event of widespread crypto upside due to possible rallies in the bitcoin (BTC) and ether (ETH) markets.
