What's especially interesting is that NEO is currently finding resistance in a VERY obvious location. Why so obvious? Just look at the ridiculous intersection of important trends. We have the red broken channel support from earlier this year. We have a major multi-year area in the $13 zone, and then we also have the descending resistance from the all-time high (orange) AND the 200d MA (around $10.95 currently).
I don't think I've ever seen a confluence of resistances like this. Often when trends align like this, it can produce a powerful move. Look what happened with Bitcoin this past week. Its moving averages were all moving closer and closer together, indicating that the market is finding a "fair price" and that a long term direction will need to be picked soon.
Unfortunately, I assumed NEO could test the $30 area earlier this year, but instead most altcoins have ventured down to test zones closer to their bear market lows. Most have held these levels (like NEO), while others have not (like XLM and GVT). Right now, I'm not saying NEO will DEFINITELY get up to $32-45 on a major breakout. It will need to tackle this major confluence of resistances first. The longer this takes to play out, I think the harder it will be. The market can of course take its time. This doesn't have to happen immediately, or at all. But if NEO does break out and make it to my initial targets, it should tell us that alts have indeed been in a second bottom accumulation phase, much like Bitcoin's 2015 bear market. A mark up for NEO to the $32-45 zone would be the first major higher high, and would signal that accumulation has ended for promising cryptocurrencies.
Why do I list $32-45 as my target zone? This is where the 100 week Moving Average is, and $45 is also a very important area for NEO, as you can see on my chart. I think if we see a bit of a blow-off for NEO's initial impulse up, it is likely to get stopped in that price range. I will actually look to finally take some profit from my $6 entry and perhaps set up for a larger swing trade. Further targets are also listed on this chart. I left some room here as well, in case it's about to begin an even larger move up to target $1000+ prices.
This is not financial advice. This analysis is purely my opinion based on what I'm seeing and my own sentiment. I just wanted to post an update on NEO since it's been a while, and it's finally showing some life. It has some serious obstacles to overcome though. If it can't overcome the bear market downtrend, it may just be in an enormous , and it can head to new lows if the market cannot get going within the next several months.
