Definition of 'PASR'

PASR is an acronym for Price Action Support Resistance. These price levels are derrived from prior price activity viewed on charts where swing highs and lows display a reaction off of a certain price area.

These price areas can subsequently function as either support or resistance in future market movement. Often, price support if eventually penetrated to the downside will become resistance and vice versa with a resistance price level where price penetrates to the upside.
