    Pipruit: Hey, this does really help in the beginning, but still, they are not sharp price level as you’ve said.

    I will have to remember that support and resistance are areas and not the fix levels.

    Also, Commander, I notice, that the same line was support and then become a resistance and vice versa – is it normal? Just take a look at the first line on previous chart – see, it was support once, but after downward breakout has become a resistance, and the latest line on the chart also…

    Commander in Pips: Well, done. Yes, this is one of the features of support/resistance lines, and there are more, so let’s discuss them:

    1. When price breaks, say support level, later it could retest it and this area can act as resistance. The same is true for resistance level – after breakout, it could act as support if the market will return and retest this area.

    2. The more often price tests the level – the weaker it becomes, because market bounce from the level due to participants who open positions against the previous market move. Sooner or later, if market returns to this level again and again – all who wants to enter against the market – have done this, so there will not be any participants who want to open against the market. With each touching of the level fewer and fewer people are ready for entering on a counter side and eventually there will be no one who intends to do this.

    3. The longer some level holds, the stronger could be the move after true breakout of this level.

    4. The longer your time frame – the wider support/resistance area.

    So, that’s all for today and don’t forget our previous 4 rules. I think that you can start to practice with support and resistance lines already in a demo account. What are you waiting for

    Pipruit: Yeah, I’m itching to get started…Thanks.​
