Supports and resistances

Investors use support and resistance levels to spot price points on a chart that tend to work as glass ceiling, preventing the price of an asset to move up or down. A support level is a level where the price may stop as it falls. Price is more likely to "rebound" 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 other side, resistances are 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 crosses this level, it will rally easily until it hits the next resistance

The current resistance levels are:

  • R1: $23.89 (1.88% above)
  • R2: $24.25 (3.41% above)
  • R3: $24.39 (4.01% above)
  • The current supports are:

  • S1: $23.05 (-1.71% below)
  • S2: $23.01 (-1.88% below)
  • S3: $22.85 (-2.56% below)

They are usually drawn 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

    Relative strength index

    The Relative Strength Index is an oscillator-type indicator that track price fluctuations to spot when the price of a share or financial asset is overbought or oversold. Oscillator indicators, such as relative strength, are intended to indicate values in the range of 0-100. The relative strength indicator is one of the best known and most widely used indicators, and it was invented by J. Welles Wilder in 1978

    When the RSI fluctuates for so long below 70 and above 30, without showing moments of overbought and oversold, the indicator is of little use, and we find ourselves in one of these situations.
