In a blog post published on May 30, crypto exchange Coinbase announced that it has added support for EOS for its retail clients. The support extends to Coinbase Andriod and iOS apps. The post added that ''customers can now buy, sell, convert, send, receive, or store EOS.'' However, the EOS service will have geographical limitations and will be available to residents in the UK or the state of New York for now. the long term plan is to have it available for most jurisdictions.
This news has come good for EOS but the cryptocurrency couldn't extend its gains as it was overwhelmed by the broader bearish market sentiments. On Thursday, after hitting a fresh 2019 high at $8.5, it was bearish for most of the day and closed at $7.3 making a 24-hour low at $6.9. However, on Friday, it has so far recovered most of the Thursday sell-off and now close to $8. Going into June, it remains to be seen whether a full recovery above $8.5 or further dips will happen in the early days of the month. The following looks at the technical outlook based on Elliott wave theory.
Elliott wave analysis: EOS bullish trend
The wave pattern emerging on the price chart of the top cryptocurrencies show the emergence of impulse wave patterns. Bitcoin, Litecoin, Ethereum and Bitcoin Cash have shown clearly that there is still room for more rallies before a major bearish correction.
EOS looks less like an impulse wave. In fact, it looks more like a corrective structure with price overlaps and retesting previous highs at every dip. This is quite different from what has happened so far on Bitcoin and other major cryptos. However, it's expected that EOS price flows with the underlying crypto market sentiments. Meanwhile, a corrective dip to $5 or below could happen in June.
