Drawing Support and Resistance on Forex Charts

Drawing Support and Resistance – Planning the Trading Week Ahead.

Todays Video Talks about how to Draw Support and Resistance on Your Forex Charts. Every Sunday, traders should draw support and resistance levels and plan the trading week ahead, it’s something I have done for years, and it works! This video will explain how to draw the levels correctly on the EURUSD currency pair. Enjoy the Tutorial.

Video Synopsis – Drawing Support and Resistance – Planning the Trading Week

This video discusses how to draw support and resistance levels on your charts in order to plan for the upcoming trading week. Every Sunday afternoon I take the time to go through the charts and plot my key support and resistance levels, look for any relevant price action, turning points or swing points. The best thing you can do is plot your levels out on the daily chart before the week begins and every day after the markets close in New York.

The chart in this video is the EURUSD daily chart, one of the first things I do when drawing S & R levels is to mark the major turning or swing points in the market, these are the obvious “pointy” parts on the chart where the market made an obvious change of direction. I marked 6 key levels or swing points on the chart in this video, however that’s not enough, we also need to draw in horizontal lines to connect these key market swing points.

It is best to think of these support and resistance levels as “areas” instead of exact price levels, this allows you to have some leeway with your stop placement. I also draw in the “interim” levels on the chart after drawing in the major S&R levels, these “interim” levels are smaller or perhaps less significant support and resistance levels on the chart.

This video was meant to explain how to draw support and resistance on a forex chart and also how I go a little bit deeper to draw the less obvious “interim” or in-between levels in the market.

  32. Adrian

    Hi Nial
    Thanks for that vidio, I sometimes get myself tied up knowing where to draw these lines ie at the body, at the end of the wick etc. Probibly get to exact at times. This type of video helps a lot.

  33. James

    Great Nial,

    I start my trading plan doing exactly the same.
    I even go down to hourly, and even add 15 min for
    daytrade purposes. These are great “static” areas
    to combine with “dynamic” support/resistance such as
    moving averages. Proper price action at a proper static
    area combined with a dynamic area can be a nice lower
    risk higher probability setup.


    I look forward to your updated course materials.

  34. Samos

    Nial. Thanks.

  35. Azeem

    Thanks for all the guidance, Nail.
    Your teaching is just great.

  36. Smi


    all your guidance is very much appreciated…

    I use ”fractals” which help a new trader like me to identify the swing highs/swing lows.. which tie up with your levels

    God Bless and wish you all the success

  37. jody

    thanks for the reminder of keeping it simple. it is easy to forget how the market reacts over and over again to those basics. I am looking forward to the new pages and videos n nial!
