Stock chart of support and resistance
  • Stock resistance is a price level at or above the current price which provides resistance against any upward movement. ie. The stock may rally to resistance.(labeled as red lines on the 8 month chart)
  • Stock support is a price level(or area) at or below the current price which provides support against any downward movement. ie. The stock may pullback to support.(labeled as blue lines on the 8 month chart)
  • A neutral "support or resistance" price level provides resistance from upward movement and support from downward movement. ie. The stock is stuck at this price level.(labeled as a grey line on the 8 month chart)
  • Resistance and support levels are shown as price areas having a width (+ and -) in stock points.
