NEO’s technical picture

From the intraday perspective, NEO/USD is supported by 100 and 50-SMA (1-hour chart) at $32.65 and $32.84 respectively. If sellers clear this area, the sell-off may be extended towards $31.40 – the support created by long-term sloping trend line, broken on July 15. The upside is capped by $34.00 handle, that stopped the recovery on the weekend; if broken, the bulls may take NEO towards the next hurdle at $34.45 (200-SMA, 1-hour chart).  

On a longer-term timescale, the coin stays in a range, limited by $34.00 on the upside and $31.40 on the downside. Bullish breakthrough will shift the focus onto $40.00 handle, closely followed by 50-DMA. On the downside, the ultimate bearish goal is $27.03, the lowest level since June 29.
