Popular cryptocurrency analyst and trader Justin Bennett advised investors not to go long on apex cryptocurrency Bitcoin (CRYPTO: BTC), while he believes meme cryptocurrency Dogecoin (CRYPTO: DOGE) is starting to look “interesting again.”
What Happened: Bennett said in a newsletter that Bitcoin is showing a “few weeks of potential weakness” and its failure to extend rallies needs to be watched. He added that Bitcoin faces resistance near $49,000, with support coming in at the ascending trend line near $47,000.
