Test

The event of a price movement that approaches a support level or a resistance level established earlier by the market. A test is passed if prices do not go below the support or resistance level, and the test is failed if prices go on to new lows or highs.

test

The attempt by a stock price or a stock market average to break through a support level or a resistance level. For example, a stock that has declined to $20 on several occasions without moving lower may be expected to test this support level once again. Failing to fall below $20 one more time would be considered a successful test of the support level and a bullish sign for the stock.

Another test that can provide useful information that can help to predict reading performance, particularly in patients where the main problem seems to be headaches or discomfort, is the Pattern Glare Test (Figure 7).
The Pattern Glare Test comprises three gratings of differing spatial frequencies: low SF (Pattern 1), medium SF (Pattern 2), and high SF (Pattern 3).
