NEO’s technical picture
Looking technically, a sustainable move above $12.80 is needed to mitigate the downside pressure and allow for a retest of the recent high. This barrier is created by SMA100 (Simple Moving Average) on a daily chart and strengthened by SMA100 on the 1-hour chart. The next resistance is created by $14.00 with the resent high located on approach.
On the downside, the initial support is created by the lower line of 1-hour Bollinger Band at $11.40. This area stopped the sell-off during early Asian hours. Once it is out of the way, the downside is likely to gain traction with the next focus on $10.80 (SMA200, daily chart) and psychological $10.00. A sustainable move below this handle will push the price towards the lower line of -day Bollinger Band at $9.40.
