NEO price analysis

NEO has begun correcting higher in the wake of the overarching declines that have sent most assets in the market spiraling though support areas. NEO/USD found a support above $28.00 allowing the buyers to enter and stage a sustained pullback that is currently making attempts on breaking above $30.00 resistance. The 100-day simple moving average on the hourly chart is also limiting gains at $29.93. Moreover, the upper limit of the rising wedge pattern will also prevent higher movements slightly above $30.00.

The technical indicators on the hourly chart are showing bullish signals for now and could stay the same way in the short-term. On the flipside, the fib levels between the highs of $30.44 and lows of $28.47 will offer short-term support in the event of a trend reversal but the major support sits at $28.00.
