Retest of Breakout Level
On Jan. 14, the EOS price broke out above the 40,000 satoshi resistance area. It continued to increase for exactly a month until it reached a high of 53,210 satoshis on Feb. 14.
The recent decrease only served to validate the area as support, and even though the price decreased well below this level, it created a long lower wick and proceeded to reach a daily close above.
In addition, a bullish cross between the 50- and 200-day moving averages (MA) previously transpired. The decrease also served to validate the 200-day MA as support, while the price is currently attempting to flip the 50-day MA.
On a more bearish note, the daily RSI has fallen below 50, suggesting that EOS is in a bearish trend. It had not done so since prior to the breakout on Jan. 10.
In the short-term, we can define a trading range with lower and upper limits at 41,000 and 46,000 satoshis, respectively. In addition, EOS is following a descending resistance line, currently hovering right at it.
Unless the price breaks out, it is expected to test the 4,100 satoshi area once more. The six-hour RSI supports this possibility, since it was rejected by the 50-line. It crosses below 50 on Feb. 15, after being above this line for 36 days.
In the short-term, the price is trading inside an ascending channel. As long as it is doing so, it is expected to increase at its rate.
A breakdown would cause a re-test of the bottom of the range at 41,000 satoshis. Due to longer-term indicators, this seems the most likely possibility.
To conclude, the EOS price is trading in a range between 41,000-46,000 satoshis. We believe it will test the lower limit once more before potentially moving upwards towards resistance.
