Technical analysts use support and resistance levels to find price points in the stock price action that may act as obstacles, containing the price of a stock to move up or down. Supports are levels 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. Nevertheless, if the price breaks down the support, it is likely to continue falling until meeting another support level. On the other hand, resistances are where the price tends to find resistance as it rises.
