On a daily chart, NEO stays under 50-DMA (currently at $37.09), which limits the upside since May 12 and creates a long-term trendline. A sustainable movement higher will break the bearish trend and bring $40.00 into focus. Once this area is cleared, the $44.27 (previous low of 2018) will come into focus.

On the downside, the support is seen at $33.60-50 (this area includes both 50 and 100-SMA, 1-hour chart). Once it is cleared, the sell-off may be extended towards critical $30.00 and $27.00. That’s where new buyers are likely to appear and trigger the recovery.
