Stock market  Support and Resistance  Support levels

Support Levels
Support levels are levels where a declining stock will find bottom and bounce up from. Supports are formed when a stock breaks above resistance and holds above that level: the old resistance then becomes support.

Support level
Support level in technical analysis refers to a level where the price of an asset fails to fall below it. It is the result of steady buying volume, a breach below it may produce a price breakout lower to a new support level.

Stock ~s

Chart 2 - The Collapsing Dollar looks to be struggling at resistance and making a lower high and lower low (bear Trend). If the USD breaks down it should slide to the 67 cent level and send gold soaring for 2-3 months.

~s are usually below the current price, but it is not uncommon for a security to trade at or near support. Technical analysis is not an exact science and it is sometimes difficult to set exact ~s. In addition, price movements can be volatile and dip below support briefly.

~s occur when more than one downtrend has been stopped at a price level. Buyers are viewing this price as a bargain and jump in to take advantage of it, driving the price upward.

~ - a level below which the price will not likely fall.
Resistance level - a level above which the price will not likely rise.
Breakout - when a stock rises above its resistance level or below its ~.

~ is defined as the price level at which point the demand level is strong enough to stop the trading price from declining further. When prices reach this ~ it is more likely to bounce off this level, than to break through this level.

~s are established when a stock falls to a certain point and then bounces upward. If the stock price begins to fall again after the bounce, the previous point of reversal serves as support.

~s indicate the price where the majority of investors believe that prices will move higher, and resistance levels indicate the price at which a majority of investors feel prices will move lower. But investor expectations change with time! ...

~ - a term used in technical analysis indicating a specific price level at which a currency will have the inability to cross below. Recurring failure for the price to move below that point produces a pattern that can usually be shaped by a straight line.

~s are areas where buying pressure is just enough to overcome selling pressure and halt or reverse a downtrend.
A strong ~ is more likely to hold up even if price breaks the ~ and it provides traders a good buying opportunity.

A ~ is recognized when one can connect, on a chart, several past lows with a straight line. At these lows, the currency pair is testing the ~. A falling price trend has a tendency to stall at this level and can either reverse or break through.

The ~s occur below the pivot, and represent significant thresholds for the price to fall through. The resistance levels occur above the pivot, and represent significant thresholds for the price to break.

The ~ 3 plot.
Market volatility, volume and system availability may delay account access and trade executions.
Past performance of a security or strategy is no guarantee of future results or investing success.

The ~ may change with the passage of time. If the straight line inclines upwards then we speak of "upward support". Where the line is horizontal we identify "sideways support". Where the line slopes downwards we diagnose "downward support".

At key ~s, the major market participants tend to begin a process of distribution, and at key resistance levels they tend to start the process of accumulation.

Second ~
(S2) = P - (R1 - S1)
where H, L, C are the previous day's high, low and close, respectively.

After a ~ is penetrated, it often becomes a resistance level; this is because investors want to limit their losses and will sell later, when prices approach the former level.
What is Resistance?

To find ~s and resistance levels, trading charts should be analyzed for unbroken support and resistance levels. Charts can be analyzed using any time frame. However, longer time frames establish more stronger support and resistance levels.

Trending stocks tend to revisit the rising ~s represented by their trendline. That means your 10% sell order is likely to be triggered even if nothing of significance has happened. If a stock returns to its trendline, that does not mean it has made a significant change in direction.

In developing the cloud, Hosada realized support/resistance levels were not single lines drawn in the sand, since traders were often placing their trades at various distances from the ~s.

Technical analysts will use charts to identify ~s in Stocks, Exchange Traded Funds, Forex, Commodities, Bonds, Futures, etc. Support refers to a price level at which a financial security regularly finds buyers.

STRATEGY: The trading strategy is to go long stocks that are near ~s and short stocks near resistance levels. To maintain prudence, I would only seek long positions in stocks with weekly (long-term) bull trends and short positions in stocks with weekly (long-term) bear trends.

With the bear channel moving closer to ~s, sellers will probably examine whether large overlap between bars is present, whether more considerable bull trend bars and more doji bars appear, whether larger pullbacks are to be seen.

Resistance becomes support When a resistance level is successfully penetrated, that level becomes a ~. Similarly, when a ~ is successfully penetrated, that level becomes a resistance level. An example of resistance changing to support is shown in Figure 17.

In like manner, in a downtrend, ~s will temporarily halt a price decline. Trend lines are drawn above or below the market action depending upon the direction of the move.

Of course, resistance and ~s are not absolute as stocks will often break through resistance and plummet through support. I like to think of these areas as "tests" for the strength of a stock.

The problem with exiting a short trade at a ~ is that although the odds are in your favor that this ~ will be the bottom, there is obviously never guaranteed.

The chart above shows a pin bar rejection near a previously known ~. Notice how price constantly bounces off the ~ subsequently. The identification of the pin bar at the ~ shows that it is a strong level of buyers reflected by the long wicks.

The ~s indicate the price where the majority of traders believe that prices are oversold and that they will move higher. At the resistance levels the price indicates that the majority of investors believe that the price will move lower.

After the breakout occurs, the price may sometimes return to the Neckline for an immediate test of this new ~ before continuing their moves in the direction of the breakout. (Remember that the resistance now has turned into new ~).

In the next picture, we are able to see the rupture of the prices between the ~ S1 and the ~ S2, hence making another ~. In the same way, it's possible that prices break the Resistance level R1 and a Resistance level R2 appears.

Consequently, a sell signal is generated when the price breaks through the ~, which is the local minimum price.

Once a resistance or ~ is broken, its role is reversed. If the price falls below a ~, that level may become resistance. If the price rises above a resistance level, it may often become support.

Bullish engulfing formations are most powerful when they are combined with previous ~s. These patterns by themselves will make you lose more than not. Additionally, when scanning to find these setups, I find that the larger the candles, the more reliable the signal is.

For example, if you are implementing a range trading strategy, and you choose to buy a currency pair into a key ~, the original rationale for the trade is broken if that ~ is invalidated.

Looking at this P&F chart, you can see that prices were initially contained between a ~ at 114 and a resistance level at 121. When prices broke above the resistance level at 121 (the long column of Xs), that level became the new ~.

In April 03 the stock turned down in price to hit the lowest ~ before turning back up. Given that the stock retraced less than 50% of the last upswing in price, it confirmed the stock was strong.

Standard pivot points include the pivot point itself, three full ~s, and three full resistance levels, but two half way ~s, and two half way resistance levels are also often included.

When price pushes above resistance, it becomes a new ~. When price falls below support, that level becomes resistance. When a level of support or resistance is penetrated, price tends to thrust forward sharply as the crowd notices the BREAKOUT and jumps in to buy or sell.

The first bottom is sharp and consists of only two days; however, the second bottom contains five bars that have roughly the same low price ~ and slowly begin to roll upward. As is typical in technical analysis, once a resistance line is penetrated it becomes the new support.

1) The currency price must trade in the vicinity of the oversold S1 or S2 ~.
2) Price isn't able to close below S1 or S2 (otherwise skip the trade).
3) Wait for the price to develop a bullish bias in the vicinity of S1 or S2 ( for example, you could use bullish candlestick patterns, ...

For example, suppose that there is a ~ in a hypothetical market, as defined by technical analysis at 48 (an arbitrary price). Locals will try to sell into this price at a minimum, perhaps a few ticks lower, expecting that there are stops placed at around this level.

A head and shoulders top (which is considered predictive of a price decline) consists of a high price, a decline to a ~, a rally to a higher price than the previous high price, a second decline to the ~, and a weaker rally to about the level of the first high price.

If the price approaches the ~ and starts reversing, one can interpret that as a buy signal. If the price breaks through the support, that indicates a sell signal. It's likely aspect that the price will continue moving in the direction of the break-out.

For an uptrend to continue, each successive price thrust should be able to break up through the level of resistance which stopped the previous price thrust and each price reaction must complete at a higher ~ than the previous price reaction (violation of this rule leads to the ...

Once the price breaks below a ~, the broken ~ can turn into resistance. The break of support signals that the forces of supply have overcome the forces of demand. Therefore, if the price returns to this level, there is likely to be an increase in supply, and hence resistance.

Support, also known as ~, is simply a trend line where prices tend to drop to but don't pass through. Once touched, prices then rebound back up again. Vice-versa, resistance is a trend line where prices tent to move up to but don't pass through. Once touched, prices will then drop again.
