US Major Markets: Support And Resistance


The concepts of Support and Resistance are 2 of the most discussed attributes of technical analysis, they are often regarded as a subject that is complex by those who are just learning to trade.

Traders refer to price levels on charts that tend to act as barriers from preventing the price of an asset from getting pushed in a certain direction, either North or South.

Most technical traders incorporate the power of various technical indicators, such as MAs (moving averages), to aid in predicting future short-term momentum. A MA is a constantly changing line that smooths out past price data while also allowing the trader to identify Support and Resistance.

The price of the asset (index, stock, commodity, bond) finds support at the MA when the trend is up, and how it acts as Resistance when the trend is down.

Most traders experiment with different time periods in their MAs so that they can find the one that works best for this specific task, the most used are the 10-Day, 20-Day, 50-Day, and 200-Day MAs for stocks.
