Supports and resistances

Traders use support and resistance levels as a way to find price points on a chart that may work as obstacles, preventing the price of a stock to move in certain direction. 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 the support, it is likely to continue falling until approaching another support level. On the other hand, a resistance level is where the price tends to find opposition as it moves up. In the same manner, the price is more likely to "bounce off" at this level, and if it finally ruptures this level, the price will rally more easily until it finds the next resistance

The current resistance levels are:

  • R1: $8.22 (3.92% above)
  • R2: $8.73 (10.37% above)
  • R3: $9.29 (17.45% above)
  • The current supports are:

  • S1: $7.11 (-10.11% below)
  • S2: $7.01 (-11.38% below)
  • S3: $6.38 (-19.34% below)
  • Bollinger bands

    The so-called Bollinger bands are a well-established technique introduced by John Bollinger. It consists of three lines that are plotted superimposed on the price evolution chart:

    • The central band is a moving average, usually a simple moving average calculated with 20 periods
    • The upper band is calculated by adding to the value of the simple moving average 2 times the standard deviation of the moving average
    • The lower band is calculated by subtracting from the simple moving average 2 times the standard deviation of the moving average
