Supports and resistances

Technical analysts use supports and resistances as a way to identify price points in the stock price action that may behave as barriers, preventing the price of shares to move in certain direction. A support level is a level 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. However, if the price breaks down the support, it is likely to continue descending until finding another support level. In contrast, resistances are where the price tends to find opposition as it rises. In the same way, the price is more likely to "bounce off" at this level, and if it finally breaches this level, it will rise easily until it finds the next resistance

The current resistance levels are:

  • R1: $2.40 (4.8% above)
  • R2: $2.42 (5.68% above)
  • R3: $2.88 (25.76% above)
  • The current supports are:

  • S1: $2.16 (-5.68% below)
  • S2: $2.10 (-8.3% below)
  • S3: $2.03 (-11.35% below)
  • Bollinger bands

    This is an indicator that was developed in the 1980s by John Bollinger. It is made up of three lines that are 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

    Relative strength index

    The relative strength index (RSI) is a technical indicator used in the analysis of stock markets. It is intended to map the current and previous strength or weakness of a stock or market based on the closing prices of a recent trading period. Oscillator indicators, such as relative strength, are designed to indicate values in the range of 0-100. The relative strength indicator is one of the best known and most widely used indicators, invented by J. Welles Wilder in the late 1970s

    When the Relative Strength Indicator stays for so long below 70 and above 30, without showing moments of overbought and oversold, the indicator becomes of little use, and we currently are in such a case.
