Investors decided as a group that shares were expensive so they sold, increasing supply and sending prices lower. 9 In 2003, the stock moved above resistance (a breakout) as investor perception changed from that price being expensive to being cheap. 41 A Beginner's Guide to Charting Financial Markets Resistance becomes support It is very common for resistance to flip to support and vice versa.
