Investors use support and resistance levels to find price points on a chart that tend to behave as obstacles, containing the price of shares 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 is likely to continue declining until approaching another support level. On the contrary, resistance levels are where the price tends to find resistance as it moves up.
