EOS

EOS slid by 7.48% on Monday. Following on from a 6.59% slide from last week, EOS ended the day at $2.3809.

Tracking the broader market, EOS fell from an early morning intraday high $2.5773 to a mid-morning low $2.5257.

Steering clear of the major resistance levels, EOS fell through the first major support level at $2.5456.

Finding support through the late morning, EOS recovered to $2.57 levels before hitting reverse.

The reversal saw EOS fall through the major support levels to a late intraday low $2.2816.

While finding late support, EOS failed to break back through the third major support level at $2.4609.

At the time of writing, EOS was down by 1.22% to $2.3519. A bearish start to the day saw EOS fall from an early morning high $2.3804 to a low $2.3412.

EOS left the major support and resistance levels untested early on.

For the day ahead

EOS would need to move through to $2.4150 levels to support a run at the first major resistance level at $2.5444.

Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for EOS to break out from $2.40 levels.

Barring a broad-based crypto rally, resistance at $2.5000 would likely pin EOS back on the day.

Failure to move through to $2.4150 levels could see EOS slide deeper into the red. A fall through the morning low $2.3412 would bring the first major support level at $2.2487 into play.

Barring a crypto meltdown, however, EOS should steer clear of the second major support level at S2.1173.

For the day ahead

Ethereum would need to move back through to $135 levels to support a run at the first major resistance level at $140.25.

Support from the broader market would be needed for Ethereum to break back through to $140 levels.

Barring a broad-based crypto rebound, however, the first major resistance level at $140.25 would likely limit any upside.

Failure to move back through to $135 levels could see Ethereum struggle throughout the day.

A fall back through the morning low $130.67 would bring the first major support level at $126.75 into play.

Barring another crypto meltdown, however, Ethereum should steer clear of the second major support level at $121.14.

Support from the broader market would be needed for Ripple’s XRP to break out from the first major support level at $0.2006.

Barring a broad-based crypto rebound, however, Ripple’s XRP would likely come up short of $0.21 levels on the day.

Failure to move back through to $0.2095 levels could see Ripple’s XRP lose more ground on the day.

A fall through the second major support level at $0.1945 could bring sub-$0.19 levels into play before any recovery.
