The reaction of the market price at Support and Resistance is marked with a blue circle/ ellipse.

At important Timing points like the beginning of the new candle market often breaches Support or Resistance levels particularly if the prior candle strongly closed at the important Chart level (see red circles/ ellipses). More information about the Breakout Timing and False/ True Price Breakouts...


The strong manipulative nature in the Forex market leads to many false price breakouts at important chart levels like highs/ lows to trigger many stop and limit breakout orders. This kind of manipulative price action is visible on many charts and this purely stop hunting price action above/ below important Support/ Resistance levels is often marked with a red arrow. Here you find more information about manipulative price action in Forex...
