Resistance for the NEO Price
A look at the six-hour time-frame shows that gives us one resistance area that is attempting to bring an end to the current rally.
This area previously served as support on May 23. Since then, NEO has traded above it until the recent breakdown that began on July 10.
Once the NEO price reached this area, it immediately began to decrease — creating a long upper wick.
This is a sign of significant selling pressure.
In the short-term, the NEO price is not following a visible trading pattern.
A look at the daily time-frame shows that the NEO price has been following a descending support line since the beginning of December 2018.
At the time of writing, the NEO price had just touched the support line for the third time.
The previous time it did so, on May 15, it began an upward move.
A look at the RSI suggests that the same thing might happen again.
There has been significant bullish divergence developing in the RSI.
However, this divergence is not present in the MACD.
Will this be sufficient in initiating an upward move?
Let’s take a look at moving averages to see if that is likely.
The Downtrend May Continue
During the recent increase, the NEO price reached the 10-day MA before decreasing rapidly.
This created a long upper wick, confirming the MA as resistance.
A look at the weekly MAs gives a similar outlook.
In the week of Apr 23-30, a bullish cross transpired between the 10- and 20-week MAs. This is often an indication that a downtrend has begun.
Since then, the NEO price has been trading below them, facing close resistance from the 10-week MA.
Also, there has been a bearish development in the period between May and July.
Candlesticks that reached values close to 130,000 satoshis were characterized by long lower wicks. This is a sign of buying pressure around that area.
However, it was all erased by the engulfing bearish candle in the week of July 8-15. During it, the NEO price closed below 120,000 satoshis — confirming the existence of a downtrend.
The bearish crosses that have transpired in different time-frames make us believe that if NEO begins an upward move, it will not be strong enough to clear the significant resistance above.
Rather, it is more likely that, eventually, it will touch the support line again.
