Supports and resistances

Market investors use supports and resistances to find price points in the stock price action that may behave as obstacles, preventing the price of a stock to move in certain direction. Supports are levels where the price tends to stop as it falls. This means that the price is more likely to "rebound" this level rather than break through it. However, if the price breaks down this level, it will probably continue descending until finding another support level. On the other hand, a resistance level is where the price may find a curb as it moves up. Again, the price is more likely to "bounce off" at this level, and if it finally ruptures this level, the price will rally easily until it approaches the next resistance

The current resistance levels are:

  • R1: $158.83 (0.21% above)
  • R2: $160.24 (1.1% above)
  • R3: $172.36 (8.74% above)
  • The current supports are:

  • S1: $157.43 (-0.68% below)
  • S2: $157.04 (-0.92% below)
  • S3: $151.50 (-4.42% below)
  • Bollinger bands

    So-called Bollinger bands are a popular studio created by John Bollinger. It is made up of three bands that are drawn superimposed on the price evolution chart:

    • The central band is a moving average, usually a simple moving average calculated with 20 periods
    • The upper band is calculated by adding to the value of the simple moving average 2 times the standard deviation of the moving average
    • The lower band is calculated by subtracting from the simple moving average 2 times the standard deviation of the moving average

    Since the price broke down the lower band on Monday, the price has bounced off by 2.8%
