EOS/USD, the technical picture

On a daily chart, EOS/USD is changing hands right above the middle line of a Bollinger Band at $3.18. This line creates the initial support for the coin. Once it is out of the way, the downside correction is likely to gain traction with the next focus on psychological $3.00 and Monday’s low of $2.90.

On the upside, a strong resistance is created by  SMA50 (Simple Moving Average) daily currently at $3.43. We will need to see a sustainable move above this handle for the  extended recovery towards $4.00.
