EOS is a platform designed for the development of decentralized applications (dApps) which launched its blockchain in June of this year after a year-long initial coin offering (ICO) period. $4 billion was raised for the development of EOS during this time, making it the largest ICO in cryptocurrency history.
During the 2017 year-end bull run, EOS blasted off from the $0.50 range all the way to a top at $16. EOS dropped back under $5 in the months after the peak, as Bitcoin (BTC) and the altcoin market began the bear cycle that is still ongoing, 11 months later.
Those who missed the first boat with EOS got a second chance in the month before the blockchain went live — which carried the price even higher than before, this time making a new all-time high at $23.
Since launching when its genesis block was mined in June of this year, EOS has seen a steady decline following the rest of the market. Two weeks ago, it broke through the $5 support and is today trading at just $3 — the same price it was trading at exactly one year ago.
The 3-day and two-week stochastic RSI is currently in the mid-range — sitting slightly below 50.
On four instances in the past, the mid-line has acted a resistance which sent the price moving in the opposite direction (red flags) — that last instance happening in March.
Those looking to make a short-term trade should keep an eye on the stoch RSI to watch for a reversal before jumping into a position.
Blood in the Water
Those looking to make a short-term trade should beware the risks, as EOS is in a vulnerable position — floating between two major supports at $5 (green) and $2 (red).
Since dropping back below $5, the price has moved in a classic step-down pattern, bouncing off of the bottom descending line before moving up slightly and trading sideways for a period of time.
There is still a chance that EOS will go sideways for another few days before another dip, that would bring the price back to the $2.60 level.A reversal in Bitcoin (BTC) price could potentially break the step pattern. Swing traders should look to accumulate in the $2 to $2.50 range in the event of further declines, and conversely wait until the $4 level to confirm a short… Click To Tweet
