EOS price analysis 6 September: Coin’s value crushed by emerging bear market
The market suffered what analysts called a bull trap.
- EOS has been battered, hard, during today's trade.
- Trading volumes jumped up significantly over the past 24 hours, returning to volumes seen last week.
- Despite the huge rally late last week, the cryptocurrency has lost all of its recent gains.
The cryptocurrency market has suffered what analysts are calling a "bull trap". Investopedia defines a bull trap as a false signal indicating a declining trend has reversed and is rising, when in fact, it will continue declining.
EOS was one of the hardest hit digital currencies when the bears forced the bulls over a cliff, causing the majority of the market to tumble in value. In the early hours of the morning of Wednesday 5 September, EOS' price fell from US$6.49 down to US$5.80. This rapid descent saw the coin shed one tenth of its value (-10%) in just a little over an hour.
Since then EOS' price has been trading sideways and down, losing as much as 15% through the session.
At the time of writing, EOS was valued at approximately US$5.47.
24-hour trading volumes jumped to US$978 million, more than one quarter (27%) higher than yesterday's.
FX Street reports that EOS/USD bulls failed to exploit a bullish pennant and bears sent the price free-falling.
EOS' price rallied in late August after news broke that the EOS community announced that they would hold a referendum in order to allocate almost US$200 million worth of funds stored in a growing eosio.saving account.
However, this decision, together with the earlier bull market, still hasn't been enough to maintain price gains.
Forex Crunch reports that a weak bullish trend is holding the price steady for now but selling pressure is too high to allow for any substantial movement towards the resistance of US$6.00. If a breakout does happen to occur and the price rises above this resistance level, it could put EOS back on track to reach US$7.00.
Additionally, global digital exchange OKEx just announced that EOS token margin trading is now available.
