The following is an extremely basic introduction to support and resistance. I've had it for years and used it for years, largely because it's indicator-free. And it's brief. And simple. I post it here because of the various questions about and discussions of support and resistance and because one needn't know anything at all about indicators in order to understand it. As posted elsewhere, "support" is an area where buying pressure overwhelms selling pressure. More specifically, support is the zone or level at which those who have enough money to make a difference are willing to show their support by retarding, halting, and reversing the decline by buying. "Resistance" is an area where selling pressure overwhelms buying pressure. More specifically, resistance is the zone or level at which those who have enough money to make a difference attempt to retard, halt, and reverse a rise by selling or shorting. And that's it.
