What is Support Resistance?
The concepts of support and resistance are not just forex markets, but a concept of technical analysis that is used throughout financial markets. In general, support can be explained as the level at which prices are expected to decline. The persistence of sales in the financial market at support levels is interpreted as the response of buyers at this level. However, it should not be forgotten that in the case of breakdown of important support levels, that is, if downward support points are crossed, sales will accelerate and the support point will become a point of resistance. Breaking a support point does not mean that the support level is below the support level. We can say when a level of support is broken, clearly when it closes below this level. When we look at the historical charts in Forex markets, the first multiplier is the support level where the sales are stopped and the prices can not fall further below this level. At these price levels, the Euro dollar pair has found support, as can be seen from the levels indicated by blue in the chart below. Below you can find examples of euro usd support resistance level.
The concept of resistance can be explained as the level at which the rise in prices is expected to cease. Resistance levels are interpreted as a stop or slow down in the financial situation, the sellers reacting at this level, or making profit realizations. When we look at the historical charts in Forex markets, the first multiplier is the resistance, the places where purchases are stopped and the prices can not go further on this level. However, it should not be forgotten that in the case of breakdown of the major resistance levels, that is to say, if the upward resistance points are crossed, the receptions will accelerate and the resistance point will now become a support point. Breaking a resistance point does not mean that the resistance level is above prices. We can say when a level of resistance is broken, clearly when it closes over this level. When we look at the historical charts in Forex markets, the first multiplier is the resistance, the places where purchases are stopped and the prices are not even higher on this level. At this price level, you will encounter a gold-level resistance level, as shown by the levels indicated by blue in the chart below. Below you can find examples of gold support resistance points.
The positions of support and resistance you will draw on the charts will indicate where you should place your profit taking and loss stop orders. Support and resistance lines do not give you information or direction about the trend. If you have just made a purchase, it will show you where to close that position. If we go through the above example; Gold position and if the prices are rising, the place to meet the first resistance will be the level of 1266 dollars ons. If this level can not be overturned, you can realize part of your position and consider buying again from the support level below (if you think the trend is up).
