Supports and resistances

Technical analysts use supports and resistances as a way to spot price points in the stock price action that may act as obstacles, preventing the price of shares to move up or down. A support level is a level where the price tends to find support as it falls. This means that the 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 descending until finding another support level. On the other hand, a resistance level is where the price may find resistance as it rises. In the same way, the price is more likely to "rebound" at this level, and if it finally crosses this level, it will climb easily until it hits the next resistance

The current resistance levels are:

  • R1: $3.41 (6.23% above)
  • R2: $3.49 (8.72% above)
  • R3: $3.61 (12.46% above)
  • The current support levels are:

  • S1: $3.02 (-5.92% below)
  • S2: $2.89 (-9.97% below)
  • S3: $2.71 (-15.58% below)
  • Bollinger bands

    The so-called Bollinger bands are a well-established technical strategy created by John Bollinger. By essence, the Bollinger Bands are bands that flow around a centralmoving average, ranging 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 18, the price has been corrected downwards by 34.09%
