EOS price analysis
EOS/USD – SHORT TERM – 4HR CHART
Analyzing the market from the short term perspective above, we can see that EOS has seen a recent bullish run when price action started from a low of $4.17 on August 14th, 2018 and extended to a high of $6.81 on September 1st, 2018. This was a price increase totaling 62% from low to high.
After placing the high we can see that price action had rolled over and began to fall. It had found support at the short term .786 Fibonacci Retracement level (drawn in green) priced at $4.73 before rebounding.
It is important to also highlight that over the course of the past 2 months, the market has been forming a consolidation pattern known as a symmetrical triangle. We can see that the recent price surge witnessed today has pushed price action above the upper boundary of the triangle as the market breaks towards the upside. This could be a potential signal that the market is potential undergoing the makings of a new long-term rally which could push EOS to fresh all-time highs.
Moving forward, if the bulls can push price action above the resistance at the long term .886 Fibonacci Retracement level (drawn in red) priced at $6.07 then immediate resistance above this level can be expected at September 2018s price high at $6.83.
Further resistance above this level can then be located within the resistance zone market between $6.83 and $7.30.
Alternatively, if the bears re-enter the market and push price action back into the previous triangular pattern, we expect immediate support below to be located at the short term .5 Fibonacci Retracement level (drawn in green) priced at $5.49 followed by the short-term .618 Fibonacci Retracement level priced at $5.18.
If the bears can push price action even further lower then we can expect further support at the lower boundary of the triangle.
The RSI on the 4HR chart has recently entered oversold conditions above 70 which could indicate that the recent bullish momentum may need to pause before continuing further. So long as the RSI can remain above 50 on the daily chart, we can expect this market to continue to make further gains.
