EOS technical picture

The intraday picture looks bearish as the price dropped below both 100 and 50-SMA ($8.32 and $8.55 respectively, 1-hour chart). However, the downside correction may be limited by $7.66. If it is broken, the selling pressure will increase and take the price to $7.00 handle. On the upside, a sustainable movement above $8.00 to get a chance for an extended recovery towards recent highs.
