Candles and Support and Resistance Lines

Candles and Support and Resistance Lines

Richard Krivo, Trading Instructor

 Instructor’s Response:

The main rule is that the lines can pass through wicks but not through the bodies. When I draw them I try to have as many points of contact between price and the lines themselves as possible without the lines passthing through a candle body.  This may include touching some wicks as well as the bodies of the candles.
Take a look at the chart below for some examples...
