Moving averages are simple tools for investors to gauge direction. A moving average is calculated as the simple mean of the previous N periods (usually sessions). Usual time periods used for moving averages are 21 days, 50 days, 100 days and 200 days
Market investors use support and resistance levels as a way to find price points on a chart that tend to work as obstacles, preventing the price of a stock to move in certain direction. 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. However, if the price breaks down the support, it will probably continue descending until finding another support level. On the other hand, a resistance level is where the price tends to find opposition as it rises. 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 rally more easily until it meets the next resistance
