The support is not usually tied with a specific price, but rather a price zone or Range in which the support appears to be ongoing. The questions of how high the price may rise and how far it can drop while still retaining that support helps to determine the parameters for the zone of support. The higher the Volume of trading in the zone of support, the higher the point at which actual support will most likely occur.

Concerns about the leadership of the company, such as with the resignation and selection of a new company president or CEO, may also slow the Momentum of the stock price, causing it to fall rapidly. Natural disasters, the outcome or political elections, or a significant change in the general economy that affects consumer buying habits could also lead to shifts in the zone of support.
