Support is a price level where a downtrend can be expected to pause due to a concentration of demand. As the price of security drops, demand for the shares increases, thus forming the support line. Meanwhile, resistance zones arise due to a sell-off when prices increase.
- Support acts as a floor that limits any further downward movement and an area on your chart with potential buying pressure.
- Resistance, on the other hand, acts as a ceiling limiting further upward movement and an area on your chart with potential selling pressure.
Support in the past can mean resistance in the future. The same thing goes for resistance. The Resistance in the past could mean support in the future. Support and resistance levels are some of the key concepts used by technical analysts and form the basis of a wide variety of technical analysis tools.
Both are formed through the actions of the traders in the current market.
What Does This Indicator Do?
We have converted this indicator from the MT4 trading platform to work on the cTrader platform. We had to do an extensive cleanup and bug fixing of the code including adding the alert logic for email and telegram, it can display both weak and strong support and resistance levels on your chart in the form of a box, we decided not to shade the boxes so you can see the candlestick price action.
Dynamic Support & Resistance Zones
This indicator will dynamically add and remove new support and resistance zones as the price action is happening in real-time, so you can just leave it running and receive alerts when the price reaches a strong support or resistance zone. When a zone has been breached it is deemed as no longer a support or resistance level and this zone is automatically removed from the chart.
