EOS/USD: Technical picture
On the intraday chart, EOS/USD broke free from the recent consolidation channel and settled above 1-hour SMA200 at $2.40. While this is a positive signal, we will need to see a confirmation in the form of the daily close above this barrier. The next local resistance is created by $2.50 with the middle line of the daily Bollinger Band located on approach. Also, this line served as a support during the consolidation period in the middle of June. Once it is out of the way, the upside is likely to gain traction with the next focus on a combination of the daily SMA50 and SMA100 at $2.58. This resistance may slow down the recovery as it capped the upside back in June.
EOS/USD daily chart
On the downside, if the above-mentioned $2.40 level gives way, the sell-off may be extended towards $2.35 (1-hour SMA50 and SMA100). It is followed by the recent low of $2.30.
