Investors use support and resistance levels as a way to spot price points in the stock price action that tend to work as barriers, preventing the price of a stock to move in certain direction. Supports are levels where the price may find support as it falls. This means that the price is more likely to "bounce off" this level rather than break through it. Nevertheless, if the price breaks down this level, it will probably continue declining until approaching another support level. On the contrary, a resistance level is where the price tends to find resistance as it moves up. In the same manner, the price is more likely to "rebound" at this level, and if it finally breaks this level, it will rally more easily until it meets the next resistance
The current resistances are:
