EOS slid by 6.31% on Wednesday. Following on from a 5.35% loss on Tuesday, EOS ended the day at $3.3497.

It was a mixed start to the day. EOS rose to an early morning intraday high $3.6295 before hitting reverse.

Falling short of the first major resistance level at $3.7944, EOS slid to a late intraday low $3.2119.

EOS fell through the first major support level at $3.4097 and the second major support level at $3.2416.

EOS/USD 20/08/20 Hourly Chart

For the day ahead

EOS would need to move back through the $3.3970 pivot level to support a run at the first major resistance level at $3.5822.

Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for EOS to break back through to $3.50 levels.

Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level and Wednesday’s high $3.6295 would likely cap any upside.

Failure to move back through the pivot level at $3.3970 would bring the first major support level at $3.1646 into play.

Barring an extended sell-off, however, EOS should steer clear of sub-$3.00 levels. The second major support level sits at $2.9794.
