NEO/USD, the technical picture

NEO/USD  broke free from the tight range and extended the recovery towards the next strong resistance of $8.00. The first attempt to push higher was nit successful; however, once it is out of the way, the upside is likely to gain traction with the next focus on  $8.54 (the middle line of one-day Bollinger Band) and psychological $9.00 strengthened by SMA50 (Simple Moving Average) daily.  

On the downside, a sustainable move below $7.68 (Monday’s high) will lead to increased selling pressure and push the price towards the next critical barrier located on the approach to $7.00. Once below, will come back into focus.$6.70.
