How to identify the rectangular price model

In a ranging market, you'll notice that prices will rise to a specific price point before dropping to a specific price point. The upper price forms the resistance level. Conversely, the lower price point forms the support. Both are strong. That is, the price doesn't break out when it reaches these levels but rather bounces back within the range.

The support is created by drawing a horizontal line that touches at least 2 low price points. The resistance, on the other hand, is created by drawing a horizontal line that touches at least 2 high price points. Both support and resistance run parallel to each other.
