Supports and resistances

Technical analysts use support and resistance levels to identify price points on a chart that tend to act as obstacles, containing the price of shares to move in certain direction. Supports are levels where the price may stop as it falls. Price is more likely to "bounce off" this level rather than break through it. However, if the price breaks down the support, it is likely to continue descending until approaching another support level. In contrast, resistance levels are where the price tends to find resistance as it moves up. Likewise, this means that the price is more liable to "rebound" at this level, and if it finally breaks this level, the price will rise easily until it finds the next resistance

The current resistance levels are:

  • R1: $78.32 (14.77% above)
  • The current support levels are:

  • S1: $66.42 (-2.67% below)
  • S2: $63.32 (-7.21% below)
  • S3: $55.92 (-18.05% below)
  • Bollinger bands

They are usually drawn 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 broke down the lower band on September 11, the price bounced off by 3.1%
