Support and Resistance

Investment Dictionary -> Support and Resistance

A key observation with any form of technical analysis is support and resistance, that is to say, what price are significant number of buyers and seller sitting at. When price approaches these levels it is common to see price stall. For example, as price rises to resistance where sellers are waiting, it is common to see a prolonged period of trading at these levels as sellers orders are soaked up. If the number of sellers outweigh demand for the equity then price will reverse and start to fall once more, often to support. If however the number of sellers is not sufficient price may accelerate through resistance as traders become aware a new high is being made.
