Support and Resistance

Support and Resistance is one of the most used techniques in technical analysis based on a concept that's easy to understand but difficult to master. It identifies price levels where historically the price reacted either by reversing or at least by slowing down and prior price behavior at these levels can leave clues for future price behavior. There are many different ways to identify these levels and to apply them in trading. Support and Resistance levels can be identifiable turning points, areas of congestion or psychological levels (round numbers that traders attach significance to). The higher the timeframe, the more relevant the levels become.

Finding the most important ones can take many hours of practice. They exist due to an influx of buyers or sellers at key junctures. The fact that these levels flip roles between support and resistance can be used to determine the range of a market, trade reversals, bounces or breakouts. Each of these trades will have their own rules for entry and exit. TradingView has a smart drawing tool that allows users to visually identify these levels on a chart.

Hi all, i've been looking at this pair over the last days, and it finally turned into a trading opportunity right now. The blue zone is a structure zone in which price has lately been very sensitive and it's also been a zone in which price has gone overbought on the 4hr chart, also creating a short candlestick with an engulfing candle. Moreover, on the hourly ...

Bearish outside week ominous for GOLD - 1290/92 resistance

Main bearish argument The bearish engulfing candlestick which engulfs the prior 3 weeks means lower prices to come Entry? Any rebound could be capped at $1290-92, previous support and 50% Fib of cent leg lower Alternative bullish argument A rising trend line connecting the July 17 and Dec 17 lows could be support for a longer term uptrend

Hi guys, not so much on my charts these days (at least for my eyes), but i've been able to find this nice setup on the hourly chart. It's a bearish bat formation that's going to complete in a strong structure level (both daily and 4H) and i'm going to get in as soon as the price will touch the D completion point because of the higher trend and because it's a nice ...

Hi guys, on the daily chart EURNZD is in oversold condition and it's also testing a key structure zone. That's why i've highlighted the yellow box that you see above. In cases like this, i like to go on smaller timeframes looking for additional clues to take a trade. In this case i've found multiple hints: first of all, on the 4H chart we can see a couple of ...

Last post: June 10th. See chart. Review: Price had pulled back to a resistance zone and producing indecision candles, a good sign of exhaustion in the pullback. Update: Price has weakened over 100 pips today but a break and close of the pivot support is still required. Conclusion: Standing aside until the low of May is cleared for entry points into the bear ...

Reversal on EURJPY? I think so

Hi guys, this is the hourly chart on EURJPY and i'm taking this long trade because of several reasons. First of all, we're in a strong supporto zone on the daily chart and we're also creating a nice divergence on the RSI there. Then, if we lower a timefeame (4H), you can see a couple of pinbars (candles with long wick to the bottom) signaling buying pressure ...
