Trade Recommendation: EOS

Just like most cryptocurrencies, EOS (EOS/USD) has had a rough 24 hours. Yesterday, November 14, 2018, the market opened at $5.2947. Before the day closed, this coin dropped to as low as $4.4610. In short, the market dropped by as much as 15.75% in one day.

Many would have been stopped out by this move. After all, the sudden decline looked convincing. Yesterday, EOS printed volume that’s over 490% of its daily average. This was the highest volume buzz of EOS since September 6. With this big drop, however, volatility has returned and with it comes opportunities for quick profits.

Technical analysis shows that EOS/USD is ripe for a bounce. Even with this retracement, this crypto still managed to stay within the three-month range of $4.50 to $6.30. Take note, the market quickly rallied and closed November 14 at $4.7656 after plummeting to as low as $4.4610. This created a wick below the daily candle’s body, which suggests that the smart money is buying.

More importantly, the preservation of the $4.50 support has bullish implications. If bulls hold it, EOS will create a double bottom structure. The double bottom also appears on the 4-hour RSI. On top of that, the 4H RSI is in extreme oversold territory. With these signals, it appears that this cryptocurrency is ready for a solid bounce.

The strategy is to buy the retest of support as close as $4.50 as possible. Bears will try to breach this range so stay alert and don’t hesitate to hit the stop loss when it’s hit. However, if bulls hold on, we will likely see the coin climb to our targets of $5.50 and then $6.30.

The process may take more than a month.
