• NEO retreats from the intraday high, stays unchanged since the beginning of Tuesday.
  • NEO team has announced the launch of NEO 3.0 testnet.

NEO touched $9.29 high during early Asian hours amid strong recovery from the recent low of $8.90. However, NEO/USD failed to hold the ground and retreated to $9.12 by the time of writing. The 20th largest digital asset with the current market value of $647 million has stayed unchanged both on a day-on-day basis and since the beginning of the day.  NEO is most actively traded at Bitfinex against USDT. From the longer-term perspective, the coin bottomed out at $8.08 on September 10 and has been moving in a tight range ever since. 

The initial support is created by the upper line of the Bollinger Band on a daily chart. Once it is out of the way, the upside is likely to gain traction with the next focus on $9.90 ( SMA50 (Simple Moving Average) daily) and psychological $10.00. On the downside, important support is created by $9.00. A sustainable move lower will take us towards the recent low of $8.08.
