** Quick Chart Lesson: Support & Resistance **

Understanding support and resistance levels are one of the most basic, but important aspects of technical analysis. Their importance comes in the aspect of the psychology they provide. Think about it... if you can have an idea of "where" the bears have stood in the past, don't you think that'd be valuable? Well, that is exactly what understanding support and resistances can do for you.

What is resistance? Resistance levels are where the bears "own the field"... the PPS approaches these areas and is then battered back down... resistance points are shown with red arrows.

What is support? Support levels are just the opposite of resistance levels in regards to "who's in charge". In this case, our good friends DA BULLS own the field. Support levels are areas where buyer's sentiment is strong; therefore, when the price approaches these levels, buyers are waiting with open arms...
