NEO/USD, the technical picture

Looking technically, NEO/USD reached the lowest level since the end of October. The price dropped below both SMA50 (Simple Moving Average) and SMA100 on a daily chart, which is an ominous sign for NEO bulls. The first support awaits us on approach to psychological $8.00. It is closely followed by the upper boundary of October’s consolidation channel. Once it is out of the way, the sell-off is likely to gain traction with the next focus on $6.80.

On the upside, we will need to see a sustainable move above $9.70 (SMA50 daily) to mitigate the initial bearish pressure. A more important hurdle awaits us on approach to psychologocal $10.00 and $11.00 reinforced by SMA200 and the middle line of the Bollinger Band on the daily chart.
