EOS technical picture

While EOS/USD has recovered from $7.43 low reached late on Monday, the  intraday picture looks bearish as the price stays below $8.00, capped by short-term MA levels. However, the dowinside correction may be limited by $7.40 so far. If it is broken, the selling pressire will increase and take the price to $7.00 handle. On the upside, a sustainable movement above $8.00 is needed to get a chance for an extended recovery towards recent highs.
