INVESTOPEDIA EXPLAINS 'Trade Price Response'

For example, say that the $25 level of a stock has been an important level of resistance, and it has had difficulty in moving above that level several times. A trade price response would be the setting up of a trade based on what the price does once it again reaches the $25 level. If the an upward move toward this level were to slow, a trader may enter a short position on the stock as the price has again failed to move above the level. On the other hand, if the price moved above the $25 level a trader may enter a long position in anticipation that the price will head higher after breaking through this critical level of resistance.
