EOS

EOS slid by 7.77% on Tuesday. Reversing a 1.99% gain from Monday, EOS ended the day at $3.1234.

A mixed start to the day saw EOS rise to an early morning intraday high $3.3961 before hitting reverse.

Falling short of the first major resistance level at $3.4516, EOS tumbled to a late afternoon intraday low $2.9523.

EOS fell through the day’s major support levels before moving back through to $3.14 levels late in the day.

The late partial recovery saw EOS move back through the third major support level at $3.0717.

At the time of writing, EOS was down by 0.68% to $3.1020. A bearish start to the day saw EOS fall from an early morning high $3.1269 to a low $3.0895.

EOS/USD 26/08/20 Hourly Chart

For the day ahead

EOS would need to move through the $3.1573 pivot level to support a run at the first major resistance level at $3.3622.

Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for EOS to break out from the morning high $3.1269.

Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level would likely cap any upside.

Failure to move through the pivot level at $3.1573 would bring the first major support level at $2.9184 into play.

Barring another extended sell-off, however, EOS should steer clear of the second major support level at $2.7135.
