EOS / USD Short-term price analysis
In the short-term EOS is bullish, although technical indicators on the four-hour time frame appear to be rolling over. The move higher was encouraged by the broader crypto market rally and by the triggering of a bullish inverted head and shoulders pattern.
The bullish inverted head and shoulders pattern appears to have reached its full upside potential, while the overall rally has so far failed to reach the important January 10th high.
Traders should watch for the EOS / USD pair to start making lower highs in the near-term as it will likely signal that the recent rally is over. The neckline of the bearish head and shoulders pattern provides a solid downside target if a decline does take place.
