Understanding Horizontal Support and Resistance Levels

Horizontal support and resistance levels play a crucial role in technical analysis. Here’s what you need to know:

  1. Definition:

    • These levels represent key areas on a price chart where price has previously bounced off or stalled.

    • They serve as critical reference points for traders.

  2. Identification:

    • Analyze historical price charts to locate areas where price has reacted.

    • These levels appear as horizontal lines on the chart.

  3. Drawing Horizontal Levels:

    • Look for areas where price has bounced off multiple times, forming a clear horizontal line.

    • These levels help anticipate potential future price movements.

  4. Refining Analysis:

    • Use additional tools like trendlines, moving averages, and technical indicators to validate support and resistance levels.

    • Be aware that these levels can be broken or breached, leading to trend reversals.

  5. EUR/USD Example:

    • In the chart below, observe how the price of the EUR/USD currency pair has repeatedly bounced off the horizontal support level.
