EOS

EOS slid by 2.32% on Saturday. Reversing a 1.52% gain from Friday, EOS ended the day at $3.7979.

A choppy start to the day saw EOS rise to an early morning intraday high $3.9976 before hitting reverse.

Falling short of the first major resistance level at $4.0611, EOS fell to a mid-morning intraday low $3.7000.

The reversal saw EOS fall through the first major support level at $3.7322 before bouncing back to an afternoon high $3.9667.

A 2nd pullback, however, saw EOS slide back to sub-$3.80 levels to close out the day in the red.

At the time of writing, EOS was down by 0.06% to $3.7955. A mixed start to the day saw EOS fall to an early morning low $3.7626 before striking a high $3.8247.

EOS left the major support and resistance levels untested early on.

For the day ahead

EOS would need to move back through to $3.83 levels to support a run at the first major resistance level at $3.9637.

Support from the broader market would be needed for EOS to break back through the morning high $3.8247

Barring a broad-based crypto rally, however, Saturday’s high $3.9976 and first major resistance level would likely cap any upside.

Failure to move back through to $3.83 levels could see EOS fall deeper into the red.

A fall back through the morning low $3.7626 would bring the first major support level at $3.6661 into play before any recovery.

Barring an extended sell-off, however, EOS should steer clear of the second major support level at $3.5342.
