In a positive market-wide signal, the crypto fear & greed index has turned “neutral” after over two months — a significant improvement from the “extreme fear” rating assigned last week.
Dogecoin has a near-neutral 14-day relative strength index of 47.4 as of press time, as per data from Trading View. It is trading above the 200-day simple and exponential moving averages but below the 30-day averages.
Benzinga’s Melanie Schaffer noted that since July 22 DOGE has been trading in an uptrend rangebound between 18 and 23 cents.
As per Schaffer, there is a support level “slightly above 20-cent mark” and on Monday and Tuesday DOGE closed the day above that mark — a good sign for bulls.
Meanwhile, acceptance for DOGE continues to grow. On Tuesday, it was Restaurants Brands International Inc (NYSE:QSR) subsidiary Burger King in Brazil that said it would accept DOGE as a payment for a dog snack in Brazil. Now a Louisville, Kentucky coffee shop has rebranded itself as Dogebean and is planning to accept DOGE.
