Supports and resistances

Technical analysts use support and resistance levels to find price points in the stock price action that tend to act as obstacles, containing the price of an asset to move up or down. Supports are levels where the price may stop as it falls. Price is more likely to "bounce off" this level rather than break through it. Nevertheless, if the price breaks down the support, it is likely to continue declining until finding another support level. On the other side, a resistance level is where the price tends to find opposition as it rises. In the same manner, the price is more liable to "bounce off" at this level, and if it finally breaches this level, the price will rally easily until it approaches the next resistance

The current resistance levels are:

  • R1: $30.75 (105.27% above)
  • R2: $33.00 (120.29% above)
  • R3: $33.45 (123.3% above)
  • The current supports are:

  • S1: $13.91 (-7.14% below)
  • S2: $13.49 (-9.95% below)
  • S3: $12.82 (-14.42% below)
  • Bollinger bands

    The so-called Bollinger bands are a widely known technical strategy created by John Bollinger. It is made up of 3 bands that are outlined 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

    When the price moves out of the band (above the upper line or below the lower line) it means that the price action is maintaining a very strong momentum and therefore can reverse the trend to the average. At this point, the price is over the upper band, which should mean a possible short-term corrective movement (at least) until it is under the band
