NEO technical picture

On the downside, the local support is produced by long-term sloping trendline coupled with 200-SMA (4-hour chart) at $40.55. Once it is broken, the sell-off may be extended towards $33.8, which is 100-SMA.  On the upside, early Asian high at $43.56 followed by $45.00 creates the local resistance area. Once it is cleared, the recovery may be extended towards $48.95 (July 4 high).
