Looking at the 2-hours chart of EOS/USD, the pair started a strong recovery after forming a new weekly low at $5.024. It broke the $5.200 resistance and the 25 simple moving average (2-hours). There was even a break above the 50% Fib retracement level of the last downward move from the $5.565 high to $5.024 low.
EOS price even broke the $5.400 level and tested the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the last downward move from the $5.565 high to $5.024 low. However, the bulls struggled to gain momentum above the $5.440 and $5.450 resistance levels.
More importantly, there is a crucial bearish trend line in place with resistance at $5.480 on the same chart. A convincing break above the trend line and a follow through above $5.500 is needed for a strong upward move towards the $5.700 pivot level.
The $5.700 is a major barrier for the bulls since it represents the 1.236 Fib extension level of the last downward move from the $5.565 high to $5.024 low.
Alternatively, if there is a bearish break below the $5.250 support, EOS price could revisit the $5.100 support zone. Any further losses might increase selling pressure and the price might even slide below the key $5.000 support area.
