Shiba inu (SHIB)
Shiba inu (SHIB) was one of the biggest movers in the market for a second consecutive session, with prices rising by as much as 13% higher today.
SHIB/USD rose to a high of$0.00001457 on Saturday, which was its strongest point since October 29.
The move comes following a low of $0.00001232 on Friday, and as bulls led a breakout of a price ceiling at $0.00001290.
Looking at the chart, the surge also led to a breakout of the relative strength index (RSI), which hit a 12-day high.
The index moved beyond a ceiling at 74.00 earlier in the day, and is currently tracking at a reading of 79.15.
This is close to a ceiling at 80.00, and has resulted in earlier bulls beginning to abandon previous positions.
Dogecoin (DOGE) also surged in Saturday’s session, with prices breaking out of a key resistance level.
Following a low of $0.09107 on Friday, DOGE/USD raced to an intraday peak of $0.09489 to start the weekend.
As a result of this move, the meme coin once again moved above a ceiling at $0.0935 earlier in the day.
However, as the session progressed, momentum has since dropped, and this comes as the RSI collided with a hurdle.
The index ran into resistance at the 63.00 mark, causing bulls to retreat, in fear of a price reversal.
As of writing, price strength is now at 61.92, with DOGE trading at $0.09383.
