EOS Price Analysis
Earlier this week, there was a strong rise in Ethereum, ripple, litecoin and EOS against the US Dollar, while bitcoin struggled to gain traction. EOS price climbed above the $3.850 resistance area to move into a positive zone. Moreover, there was a break above the $4.000 resistance and the 55 simple moving average (4-hours). Finally, the price spiked above the $4.200 level and recently the price started a downside correction.
There was a break below the $4.100 support and the 50% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $3.645 low to $4.226 high. The recent decline was such that the price traded below the $4.000 support and the 55 simple moving average (4-hours). At the moment, the price is testing the $3.850 support area. Moreover, the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $3.645 low to $4.226 high is also near the $3.850 level.
More importantly, there is a major bullish trend line forming with support near $3.850 on the 4-hours chart of the EOS/USD pair. Therefore, it won’t be easy for the bears to push the price below the $3.850 support. If they succeed, the price could decline further towards the next key support near the $3.650 level. Any further losses might call for a test of the $3.500 support.
On the upside, an initial resistance is near the $3.950 and $4.000 levels. If there is a fresh increase above the $4.000 resistance, the price could start a strong rise towards the $4.200 level in the near term. The next key resistance levels are near $4.400 and $4.445.
