NEM was hampered earlier this year amid financial struggles of the project. However, recently, the team published the restructurization plan that will allow to overcome difficulties and support further development. 

The plan was well accepted by the community, despite some tough decisions made by the team including staff reduction. The company will part ways with 69% of its employees.

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.
