Supports and resistances

Traders use supports and resistances to identify price points in the stock price action that tend to work as obstacles, preventing the price of a stock to move up or down. Supports are levels where the price tends to find support as it falls. Price is more likely to "bounce off" this level rather than break through it. Nevertheless, if the price breaks down this level, it will probably continue descending until meeting another support level. On the other hand, resistances are where the price may find resistance as it rises. Again, the price is more likely to "bounce off" at this level, and if it finally crosses this level, it will rally easily until it approaches the next resistance

The current resistance levels are:

  • R1: $78.93 (0.87% above)
  • R2: $82.60 (5.56% above)
  • The current support levels are:

  • S1: $66.50 (-15.02% below)
  • S2: $50.90 (-34.95% below)
  • S3: $45.01 (-42.48% below)
  • Bollinger bands

    The so-called Bollinger bands are a widespread technique designed by John Bollinger. Fundamentally, the Bollinger Bands are lines that move around a moving average, ranging the distance from the bottom to the top depending on market volatility. They are usually plotted by an offset of two standard deviations, above and below, from a moving average line. Bollinger himself recommends the moving average period to be 20

    Since the price surpassed the upper band on September 18, the price has been corrected downwards by 3.61%

Welles Wilder introduced the relative strength indicator in 1978 and since then it has been widely used by stock traders
