EOS/USD – EOS Returns To Highs Not Seen Since June 2018
Key Support Levels: $13, $12.30, $10.78.
Key Resistance Levels: $14.85, $16.50, $17.75.
EOS exploded by a total of 63% yesterday upon the announcement that BlockOne raised $10 billion to launch a new exchange. Upon the news, the coin surged from $9.00 to reach above $14 by the end of the day. Today, it continued to climb to hit $14.87 – a price not seen since June 2018. There, it met resistance at a 1.414 Fib Extension and has since rolled over to the current $13.25 level.
EOS had started to surge at the start of May before the announcement was made. Last week it climbed from $6.00 to break a long-term resistance trend line and reach $13. From there, it did drop lower until support was found around $9.00 at the start of the week.

EOS-USD Short Term Price Prediction
Looking ahead, the first resistance lies at $14.85 (1.414 Fib Extension). This is followed by $16.50 (1.618 Fib Extension), $17.75 (1.272 Fib Extension – red), $19.25 (1.414 Fib Extension – red), and $20.
On the other side, the first support lies at $13. This is followed by $12.30 (.236 Fib), $10.78 (.382 Fib), $10, and $9.55 (.5 Fib).
The RSI is showing signs of bearish divergence as price action creates a new high while the RSI fails to do so. This could be a signal of an imminent retracement incoming which might push EOS back toward $10 in the short term.

The news of the new exchange caused EOS/BTC to surge yesterday as it rebounded from 16,000 SAT and surged above 25,000 SAT. Today, it continued to hit 26,190 SAT before rolling over to the current 22,900 SAT level.
