Supports and resistances

Price is at highs and there are not upper resistance levels.

The current support levels are:

  • S1: $160.74 (-1.99% below)
  • S2: $157.25 (-4.12% below)
  • S3: $148.09 (-9.71% below)
  • Bollinger bands

    When the price moves out of the band (above the upper line or below the lower line) it signals that the stock is maintaining a very strong momentum and therefore can correct the trend to the average. At this point, the price is beyond the upper band, and that should mean a possible near-term corrective movement (at least) until it is under the band

    When the stays for so long below 70 and above 30, without any indication of overbought and oversold, the indicator becomes of little use, and we are now in one of these situations.
