Supports and resistances

Technical analysts use supports and resistances to spot price points on a chart that may behave as barriers, containing the price of a stock to move up or down. A support level is a level where the price tends to stop 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 will probably continue falling until finding another support level. On the other side, a resistance level is where the price may find resistance as it rises. In the same manner, the price is more likely to "rebound" at this level, and if it finally breaks this level, the price will rise easily until it hits the next resistance

The current resistance levels are:

  • R1: $38.10 (0.58% above)
  • R2: $39.16 (3.38% above)
  • R3: $39.42 (4.07% above)
  • The current support levels are:

  • S1: $37.57 (-0.82% below)
  • S2: $37.34 (-1.43% below)
  • S3: $35.77 (-5.57% below)
  • Bollinger bands

    This is an indicator that was introduced in the 1980s by John Bollinger. It comprises 3 bands 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

    Since the price surpassed the upper band on September 16, the price has been corrected downwards by 3.05%. Since the price broke down the lower band on Wednesday, the price has bounced up by 6.43%. The price is trading very close to the upper Bollinger band, poiting some level of overbought in recent sessions. This is not a sell point, as price can move in these levels for many days and weeks
