Steering clear of the second major support level at $0.05170, NEM’s XEM managed to recover to $0.0530 levels late in the day,

The extended bearish trend, formed at late April’s swing hi $0.46547, remained firmly intact. Following 9 weeks in the green, NEM’s XEM has seen 4 consecutive weeks in the red.

For the day ahead

A move through the morning high $0.053389 to $0.0550 levels would bring the first major resistance level at $0.0565 into play.

NEM’s XEM would need support from the broader market, however, to break out from $0.0540 levels.

Barring a broad-based crypto rally, NEM’s XEM would likely come up short of $0.0560 levels. In the event of a crypto rally, Tuesday’s high $0.05794 would likely limit any upside on the day.

Failure to move through to $0.0550 levels could see NEM’s XEM fall deeper into the red. A pullback through to sub-$0.0520 levels could see NEM’s XEM fall through the first major support level at $0.0515 to sub-$0.0510 levels.

Barring a crypto meltdown, however, NEM’s XEM would likely steer clear of sub-$0.050 support levels on the day.
