In this paper, we consider a new non-interior continuation method for the solution of nonlinear complementarity problem with $P_0$-function ($P_0$-NCP). The proposed algorithm is based on a smoothing symmetric perturbed minimum function (SSPM-function), and one only needs to solve one system of linear equations and to perform only one Armijo-type line search at each iteration. The method is proved to possess global and local convergence under weaker conditions. Preliminary numerical results indicate that the algorithm is effective.
