The prolific CEO of EV giant Tesla Motors Inc and spacecraft maker SpaceX, has now become the sole director of Twitter, according to an SEC filling from Thursday  - a day after he had entered the firm's headquarter carrying a sink and tweeting "Entering Twitter HQ – let that sink in!". 
This ends (i hope) the saga that had started back in April, when mr Musk had disclosed a stake in the microblogging site. The two sides had agreed on a buyout deal, but Tesla's CEO terminated it, over a dispute regarding fake/spam accounts. Twitter sued to enforce the deal and just before the trial was due to begin, Mr Musk had another change of heart, which eventually led to the completion of the acquisition.
Mr Musk often comments on Cryptocurrencies, with Dogecoin often being one of them. Earlier in the year, he had suggested its use for paying Twitter's subscription service , while already been accepted as a form of payment for merchandise in other companies of his.
Today he also tweeted a picture of a dog in Twitter clothing, creating further buzz over the altcoin . As a result, DOGE/USD surges this week, up around 70% from Friday's close, at the time of writing. This marks an impressive turnaround from this year's collapse.
This brings the April highs (0.1802) in the spotlight, with the next resistance provided by this year's highs at the 0.2044-0.2155 region, although fresh impetus will be required for such moves.
Sustained advance however, is not easy as long as the Fed's aggressive rate hike cycle boosts the US Dollar, so Wednesday's rate decision could determine the next leg of the move.
This week's massive surge has created overbought condition and a return back towards 0.900-1.000 would not surprise us, although daily closes below the EMA200 would likely need a catalyst.
In any case, caution is needed due the high volatility and rapid nature of the move, which makes any technical approach hard at this point.
