Traders use support and resistance levels as a way to find price points in the stock price action that tend to work as barriers, preventing the price of a stock to move up or down. Supports are levels where the price tends to find support as it falls. Price is more likely to "bounce off" this level rather than break through it. However, if the price breaks down the support, it is likely to continue falling until approaching another support level. On the other hand, a resistance level is where the price may find opposition as it moves up. Likewise, this means that the price is more likely to "bounce off" at this level, and if it finally breaches this level, it will rally more easily until it finds the next resistance
The current resistances are:
The current support levels are:
The so-called Bollinger bands are a widespread technique introduced by John Bollinger. It is made up of three bands that are plotted superimposed on the price evolution chart:

At this point, the price is lower the upper band, which should mean a short-term bounce (at least) until it is back above the band
