Supports and resistances

Traders use support and resistance levels to spot price points on a chart that may act as glass ceiling, preventing the price of shares to move in certain direction. Supports are levels where the price tends to stop 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 falling until approaching another support level. In contrast, a resistance level is where the price tends to find resistance as it moves up. Likewise, the price is more likely to "rebound" at this level, and if it finally breaches this level, the price will rise more easily until it hits the next resistance

The current resistances are:

  • R1: $7.38 (1.37% above)
  • R2: $7.42 (1.92% above)
  • R3: $7.47 (2.61% above)
  • The current support levels are:

  • S1: $7.16 (-1.65% below)
  • S2: $7.14 (-1.92% below)
  • S3: $7.09 (-2.61% below)
  • Bollinger bands

    This is an indicator that was designed in the 1980s by John Bollinger. Fundamentally, the Bollinger Bands are lines that fluctuate around a centralmoving average, varying the distance from the bottom to the top depending on market volatility. They are usually plotted by an interval 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 17, the price sliced by 5.08%. Since the price broke down the lower band on Thursday, the price bounced off by 3.85%. The price is trading very close to the lower Bollinger band, signaling some level of oversold in recent sessions. This is not a buy point, as price can trade in these levels for many days and weeks
