Supports and resistances

Traders use support and resistance levels as a way to identify price points in the stock price action that tend to work as obstacles, containing the price of an asset to move in certain direction. Supports are levels where the price may 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 will probably continue declining until finding another support level. On the other hand, a resistance level is where the price may find a curb as it rises. Likewise, this means that the price is more liable to "bounce off" at this level, and if it finally crosses this level, the price will climb easily until it meets the next resistance

The current resistance levels are:

  • R1: $54.63 (0.87% above)
  • R2: $54.86 (1.29% above)
  • R3: $54.88 (1.33% above)
  • The current supports are:

  • S1: $53.94 (-0.41% below)
  • S2: $52.81 (-2.49% below)
  • S3: $52.67 (-2.75% below)
  • Bollinger bands

    The so-called Bollinger bands are a well-known studio that was created by John Bollinger. Essentially, the Bollinger Bands are lines that flow around a moving average and vary the distance from the bottom to the top depending on market volatility. They are usually plotted by an offset 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 16, the price has corrected downwards by 6.86%. Since the price broke down the lower band last Thursday, the price bounced off by 4.56%
