- EOS is the worst-performing altcoin in top-20.
- A recovery above $5.0 is needed to mitigate the immediate pressure.
EOS is one of the worst-performing altcoins on Thursday. The sixth largest coin with the current market value of $4.2 billion has lost over 20% in recent 24 hours amid significant sell-off on the cryptocurrency market. At the time of writing, EOS/USD is changing hands at $4.6, having recovered from the intraday low of $4.31.
EOS’s technical picture
EOS market is dominated by bears that have been driving the coin lower recently. A sustainable move below $5.00 has worsened the short-term technical picture and increased the bearish pressure on EOS/USD. Currently, the local support is created by the recent low of $4.3, followed by $4.23 (61.8% Fibo retracement for the upside move from $1.56 low). Once it is cleared, the downside momentum is likely to gain traction with the next focus on $4.00.
On the upside, a sustainable recovery above $5.00 handle is needed to mitigate the bearish pressure and allow for an extended recovery towards $5.8 (SMA50 – Simple Moving Average – on 4-hour chart). This barrier is followed by psychological $6.00 coupled with SMA100 4-hour.
