The support and resistance (S&R) are specific price points on a chart expected to attract the maximum amount of either buying or selling. The support price is a price at which one can expect more buyers than sellers. Likewise, the resistance price is a price at which one can expect more sellers than buyers.

How to Draw Support and Resistance Lines on a Candlestick Chart?
Drawing Support and Resistance in technical analysis is very easy if you just follow the basic rules and not be so mentally rigid.
- Zoom out the chart (compress the chart), whatever time frame you have.
- Mark the swing highs and swing lows( wicks of candles) starting from today and go leftwards.
- Connect all the points where at least two swing high or swing low connect.
- The more points connect, the stronger that S&R zone is.
Pro Tip: Remember……Support & Resistance is not a single line, but an area or “zone” on the chart. And when price breaks S&R levels, a role reversal occurs in technical analysis of stock trends.
