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 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.
