A price level or area below the market where buying pressure overcomes selling pressure and price turns higher.
In technical analysis of commodities or securities, a price level where new buying is likely to come in and stem any further decline. When a market repeatedly declines to a particular level and then rallies, the market is said to be "offering support" at that level. In classic technical analysis, when a support level is violated - i.e., prices break through the support level and trade below it - it tends to become a resistance level to upward price movement.
The inverse of a resistance (see above): a line indicating that the price is unlikely to fall below such line.

The area where a stock that has been declining is likely to stabilize and then move in another direction.
A price level that acts as a floor to further price declines. When a market repeatedly declines to a particular level and then rallies, the market is said to be "offering support" at that level. Support (like resistance) is rarely a precise price; it is more often a relatively contained price range, frequently in the vicinity of past technical patterns. One of the basic precepts of support and resistance is that once a support level is violated it becomes a likely new resistance level and when a resistance level is penetrated it becomes a new support level.
A price level or range of prices at which a security stopped declining in the past or is anticipated to stop declining should it drop to that level in the future.

See also Resistance.

The term is self-explanatory. To put it very simply, the level at which buying interest is strong enough to overcome selling pressure. Net result is that the decline comes to a halt and price starts moving up again. Normally, a support level is identified beforehand by a previous reaction low. A resistance is the opposite of support. The level at which selling pressure is more than buying interest and advance is reversed. Normally identified by a previous peak. Also see resistance line or area.

Support is the lower price level of a currency – generally this is where buying takes place.
The opposite of resistance, a technical analysis price level beneath the current market price, where buying power is sufficient to stop a price decline so prices bounce off this level as if hitting a floor. Often support and resistance areas occur at round numbers. Support levels in a downtrend are usually not adequate to stop a decline for long, but are able to at least stall it temporarily. Whenever a drop in price penetrates a support level or a rise in price penetrates a resistance level, they potentially reverse their roles and become the opposite i.e. a support level becomes a resistance level and a resistance level becomes a support level. They can also be used to spot a potential trend reversal when either a previous support level in an up trend or a previous resistance level in a downtrend has been penetrated by a certain amount.
