EOS Price Analysis
EOS/USD – SHORT TERM – DAILY CHART
Analyzing price action from the short term perspective above, we can see that EOS/USD has continued to trade sideways within the confines of the 2-month-old symmetrical triangle pattern. In our previous article, we had stated that the market had broken out of the pattern, however, after more market data the breakout proved to be false and we have now adjusted the upper boundary of the triangle.
Price action is now trading at resistance provided by the short-term .5 Fibonacci Retracement level (drawn in green) priced at a $5.49. This Fibonacci Retracement is measured from the price surge that started from a low of $4.17 on the 14th of August 2018 and extended to a high of $6.82 on the 1st of September 2018. This was a price increase totaling 65% from low to high.
Moving forward, if the bears step in and force price action lower we can expect immediate support below to be located at the downside 1.414 Fibonacci Extension level priced at $5.34. Support located below this level can then be expected at the short term .618 Fibonacci Retracement level (drawn in green) priced at $5.18 followed by the lower boundary of the symmetrical triangle.
If the bears continue to push price action below the lower boundary of the triangle then we can expect further lower support at the .786 Fibonacci Retracement level priced at $4.73.
Alternatively, if the bulls can push price action above the resistance located at $5.49 then immediate resistance above will be expected at the upper boundary of the symmetrical triangle followed by higher resistance at the short term .382 Fibonacci Retracement level (drawn in green) priced at $5.18.
If the bulls can pressure the market even further higher then more resistance above can be expected at the long term .886 Fibonacci Retracement level priced at $6.07.
The RSI technical indicator is currently producing a neutral reading within the market. If we would like to see some positive price action in EOS/USD we would need to see the RSI break above the 50 handle to indicate that the bulls are in control of the possession in the market.
