NEO’s technical picture
Looking technically, a sustainable move above $11.65 (SMA50 (Simple Moving Average) 1-hour) is needed to mitigate the selling pressure and allow for an extended recovery towards $12.00 (strengthened by SMA200 1-hour). The next barrier is created by SMA100 on the 1-hour chart on approach to $12.40.
On the downside, the initial support is created by the middle line of 1-hour Bollinger Band at $11.20. Once below, the sell-off may continue towards $10.70 (the lower line of 1-hour Bollinger Band) and psychological $10.00.
