NEM’s technical picture

The initial support is created by psychological $0.0500; however, a stronger barrier comes with DMA50 currently at $0.0455. The coin is on an upside track as long as it stays above the handle. A sustainable move lower will increase the selling pressure and push the price towards the next barrier at $0.0437 (DMA50).

On the upside, watch out for $0.0547 (DMA100). This area may cap the recovery for the time being.
