Support




A price level at which a stock or market begins seeing increasing demand or buying interest.

It serves as a floor to lower prices.


Additional Comments:

A major support area is one that has been tested on several occasions and over a sustained period of time. When a major support area is broken and the stock or market begins to falter, a more meaningful move to the downside may occur.

For that reason, technicians consider major support areas to be significant.
