At the time of writing, BCH/USD plummeted nearly 2 percent to $454.30. Meanwhile, the near-term support is seen at $430.00 and resistance at $480.00.

EOS/USD: The EOS too went with the flow, giving up gains seen yesterday in a topsy-turvy scenario over the past few days. At the time of writing, EOS/USD slumped 2.51 percent to $5.2546. Meanwhile, the near-term support is seen at $4.90 and resistance at $5.55.
