NEO/USD – SHORT TERM – DAILY CHART
Analysing the market from the short term perspective above, we can see that Neo has seen some form of stabilisation over the past 2 months from its previous down trend.
After hitting support at the downside 1.414 Fibonacci Extension level (drawn in red) priced at $14.03 during August 2018, price action reversed and began to ascend. We can see that during August and September the longer termed downside 1.618 Fibonacci Extension level (drawn in blue) priced at $16.60 had provided significant support. Each time the market approached this level it was supported heavily.
The market is now currently trading at support provided by the short term downside 1.272 Fibonacci Extension level priced at $18.47. If the bears continue to push price action lower, we can expect immediate support to be located at the downside 1.618 Fibonacci Extension level (drawn in blue) priced at $16.60.
Further support located below this level can then be expected at the psychological round number handles of $16, $15.50 and $15. If the bears push the market below $15 then the next level of significant support can be expected at the downside 1.414 Fibonacci Extension level (drawn in red) priced at $14.03 once again.
Alternatively, if the bulls can regather momentum and push price action higher, we can expect immediate resistance to be located at the psychological round number handle of $20. Further resistance above this level can then be expected at the long term .886 Fibonacci Retracement level priced at $23.05.
If the bulls can persist even higher, we can expect more resistance to be located at the previous downside 1.414 Fibonacci Extension level (drawn in blue) priced at $26.75. This area of resistance will require significant momentum to overcome due to the 100 day moving average hovering closely within this price area further adding to the expected resistance here.
The technical indicators within the market have recently swung into the favour that favours the bears ever so slightly. The RSI has dipped underneath the 50 handle indicating that the bears are now currently in control of the momentum within the market.
If we would like to see some positive gains within this market we would need to see a break of the RSI above the 50 handle to indicate that the bulls are back in possession of the market momentum.
