Investors use supports and resistances to identify price points on a chart that may act as barriers, preventing the price of an asset to move up or down. Supports are levels where the price tends to find support as it falls. This means that the price is more likely to "rebound" this level rather than break through it. However, if the price breaks down the support, it will probably continue falling until meeting another support level. In contrast, a resistance level is where the price may find opposition as it moves up.
