Supports and resistances

Market investors use support and resistance levels to spot price points on a chart that tend to behave as glass ceiling, containing the price of shares to move in certain direction. Supports are levels where the price tends to find support as it falls. Price is more likely to "rebound" this level rather than break through it. Nevertheless, if the price breaks down the support, it will probably continue falling until approaching another support level. In contrast, a resistance level is where the price may find a curb as it moves up. In the same manner, this means that the price is more liable to "rebound" at this level, and if it finally ruptures this level, the price will rise easily until it finds the next resistance

Price is at highs and there are not upper resistances.

The current support levels are:

  • S1: $179.43 (-25.09% below)
  • S2: $177.17 (-26.03% below)
  • S3: $175.89 (-26.57% below)
  • Bollinger bands

    The so-called Bollinger bands are a widespread studio introduced by John Bollinger. It is composed of 3 bands that are plotted 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

    The price is trading very close to the upper Bollinger band, signaling some level of overbought in recent sessions. This is not a bearish indicator, as price can move in these levels for many days and weeks

    Relative strength index

    The relative strength index (RSI) is a technical indicator used in the analysis of financial markets. Its objective is to chart the current and historical strength or weakness of a stock or market based on the closing prices of a recent trading period. Like other oscillation indicators, the RSI fluctuates in a range between 0% and 100%. J. Welles Wilder introduced the relative strength indicator in 1978 and since then it has been widely used by stock traders

    Relative Strength Indicator (RSI) crossed over the overbought line today, with a reading of 70.47. The fact that the relative strength (RSI) value is above the level of 70 does not in any way imply a sell point, as shares can rally during several weeks being above the level of 70
