A resistance level is a price point where the market price pivots and changes direction. They are formed when you can draw a horizontal line between two or more price pivot points.
The resistance level is the highest price that a market trades at, over a period of time. The more frequently a resistance level is tested (i.e. hits a previous resistance level price pivot point but does not rise above it), the stronger the resistance at that level. Some traders believe that the stronger the resistance at a given level, the less likely it is to break above that level in the future. It is said that if a market breaks prior levels of resistance only by a small portion, it will increase until a new level of resistance is reached or established.
A resistance level can become a support level if the price of the market increases above the resistance level; similarly a support level can become a resistance level if the price of the market falls below the resistance level as illustrated in the following EURUSD price chart example:
If the price is moving between support and resistance levels, then a basic investment strategy commonly used by traders, is to buy at support and sell at resistance, then short at resistance and cover the short at support as per the following  example:
When judging entry and exit investment investment timing using support or resistance levels it is important to choose a chart based on a price interval period that aligns with your trading strategy time frame. Short term traders tend to use charts based on interval periods, such as 1 minute (i.e. the price of the market is plotted on the chart every 1 minute), with longer term traders using price charts based on hourly, daily, weekly or monthly interval periods.
