The initial support is created by the intraday low at $0.0474. It coincides with the previous top created on January 21. Once it is cleared, the downside momentum may gain traction with the target at $0.0438 (SMA200 daily) and $0.039 (SMA50 daily). This area is likely to slo down the bears and serve as a jumping-off ground for a recovery. 

On the upside, the critical resistance is created by SMA50 weekly at $0.0562. We will need to see a sustainable recovery above this area to improve the long-term technical picture. Once it happens, $0.06 will come into focus.
