Cryptocurrencies Under Pressure
Cryptocurrencies were under pressure ahead of a key policy meeting of the U.S. Federal Reserve. The central bank is widely expected to announce rate hikes on Wednesday. Cryptocurrency analyst Justin Bennett said “indecision” could dominate the mood of the market ahead of the Fed announcement.
Key Dogecoin Levels
Dogecoin faces resistance above $0.135 and $0.146 levels and support below just $0.12 and $0.10 levels, according to Benzinga’s Melanie Schaffer. On Monday, the cryptocurrency was falling on lower-than-average volume which, according to Schaffer confirms DOGE is in a consolidation phase and not experiencing fear-induced selling.
Tax The Rich Or Ax The Itch?
Dogecoin co-creator Billy Markus shared a photo of the dress Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) wore to the Met Gala last year on a Twitter thread involving billionaire and Tesla Inc (NASDAQ: TSLA) CEO Elon Musk.
The white dress that Ocasio-Cortez wore had “Tax The Rich” emblazoned on it. Musk responded, “Can only read one side. Looks like ‘ax the itch’?”
Can only read one side. Looks like “ax the itch”?
