Amazon May Begin To Accept Bitcoin Payments
Dogecoin made an attempt to settle above $0.2350 but pulled back towards $0.22 while Bitcoin rallied towards the $40,000 level.
Bitcoin gained strong upside momentum after reports indicated that Amazon may accept bitcoin payments by the end of this year. Not surprisingly, speculative traders rushed to buy Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies after these reports emerged. Ethereum made an attempt to settle above $2,400 while XRP tested $0.6750.
While Amazon news have certainly served as the main catalyst for the recent rally, it looks that short covering has also played a role in this rally. Some traders rushed to short Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies when Bitcoin made an attempt to settle below the key support level at $30,000. Bitcoin failed to gain downside momentum and began to rebound, so such traders rushed to exits at a time when bullish reports about Amazon’s plans were released.
Dogecoin is currently trying to stay above $0.22. RSI remains in the moderate territory so there is plenty of room to gain additional upside momentum in case the right catalysts emerge.
The nearest material resistance level for Dogecoin is located at $0.2250. If Dogecoin gets back above this level, it will move towards the resistance at $0.23.
