Resistance level is the price level, which, historically, a security has had difficulty going above. Typically, the resistance level can be thought of as the level at which many buyers tend to sell a security. Resistance levels are often used in technical analysis. [1]

It is where the price tends to find resistance as it is going up. This means the price is more likely to "bounce" off this level rather than break through it.
