NEO’s technical picture
The initial resistance awaits NEO bulls on approach to $14.80. This area is strengthened by the intraday high, the highest level of 2019 touched on May 30 and the upper line of 1-day Bollinger Band located on approach. Once it is out of the way, the recovery will extend towards psychological $15.00.
Notably, NEO/USD surpassed SMA50 (Simple Moving Average) on a weekly chart for the first time. This is a strong bullish signal, that may imply that the momentum will gain traction.
On the downside, the initial support comes at $14.00 followed by $13.76 (the middle line of Bollinger Band on 4-hour chart). A sustainable move below this handle will open up the way towards the next bearish aim of $13.00 with SMA50 (4-hour) located right below this handle.
