- EOS is on the rise after performing a strong rally during the last trading day of September
- A triangle breakout on the four-hour time frame shows that the cryptocurrency could recovery back towards the $3.60 level
- The daily frame continues to show an extremely large head and shoulders pattern
- The rise follows news that EOS’ creator appears to have escaped serious punishment for its ICO. Block.One agreed to pay $24 million for its year-long token sale, which raised more than $4 billion.
EOS is holding onto its recent trading gains on the first trading day of October, with the seventh-largest cryptocurrency holding firm above the $3.00 level. The EOS / USD pair needs to rally above the $3.30 level to recover trading losses incurred during the month of September.
Following a bullish breakout from a triangle pattern on the four-hour time frame, the EOS / USD pair has managed to perform a double-digit rally. The overall upside projection of the bullish breakout suggests that recent rally could extend towards the $3.30 level.
Going forward, the cryptocurrency faces a series of technical challenges to reclaim its short and medium-term bullish status. The EOS / USD pair’s 200-period moving average is located around the $3.60 level, while its 200-day moving average is located around the $4.80 level.
Furthermore, the EOS / USD pair needs to move negate a huge head and shoulders pattern on the daily time frame, which is threatening a possible decline to the $1.54 level.
The cryptocurrency would need to rally above the $8.80 level just to invalidate the bearish pattern, which means that EOS would need to gain over one-hundred and fifty percent to achieve this goal from current trading levels.
Technical indicators suggest that EOS / USD still has scope to recover higher, although the $3.30 to $3.60 technical region presents a formidable technical challenge to bulls in the short-term.
Overall, unless a significant fundamental catalyst emerges for the EOS / USD, the cryptocurrency’s destiny is likely to be closely correlated to the direction of the broader cryptocurrency market.
According to the latest sentiment data from TheTIE.io, the short-term sentiment towards EOS is neutral, at 54.00 %, while the overall long-term sentiment towards the cryptocurrency is neutral, at 67.50%.
The four-hour time frame highlights that the recent triangle breakout could extend towards the $3.30 level, which is the September 1st opening price. The 200-period moving average on the four-hour time frame is also a possible upside target and is located around the $3.60 level.
The daily time frame shows that the EOS / USD pair’s 50-day moving average is located around the $3.48 level, while the 200-day moving average is located somewhat higher, at the $4.80 level.
The downside is likely to open up for the EOS / USD pair if price starts to trade below the $2.90 support level. A bearish triangle breakout will occur if the EOS / USD pair falls below the $2.70 level.
The September 2019 trading low, around the $2.45 level, is the key downside level to watch, while the $1.54 level remains the overall medium-term bearish target.
EOS is staging a powerful recovery above the $3.00 level, with bulls needing to move price above the $3.60 level to reclaim the cryptocurrency’s short-term bullish status.
The daily time frame suggests that failure to overcome the $3.60 level could provoke a strong bearish reversal, with the $1.54 level the overall bearish objective.
