Fundamental Analysis

NEM is gaining momentum ahead of its Catapult upgrade. The project has recently launched a development studio to help with strategy and backend development. According to the President of Nem Foundation Alex Tinsman, “NEM Studios will be focused on creating a more user-friendly network that is built with the end-user in mind”. 


NEM / USD Short-term price analysis

NEM has a neutral short-term trading outlook, with the cryptocurrency still unable to find a clear directional bias.

The four-hour time frame is showing that the XEM / USD pair is trapped within a neutral wedge pattern, following false breakouts in both directions.

Technical indicators on the four-hour time frame are mixed and are failing to generate a clear trading signal.
