Resistance

A price level which may be difficult for a stock to trade through. When the price of an issue rises to an area where demand decreases and buyers are no longer willing to pay a premium for the stock, a resistance level is formed. Breaks through resistance levels are considered bullish indications and provide testament to an issue's strength.
