If you're having trouble with drawing trend lines, support and resistance levels then this indicator can help. It's called Projection Pivots, developed by Mobius for ThinkorSwim.

Upon adding the indicator, it will plot several trend lines, support, and resistance channels based on critical pivot points of the stock.

What I normally do is load this up at the end of each trading day and plot new S/R areas onto my chart based on the suggestion of the Projection Pivots indicator. I would also do this at the end of the week as well. It's important that you have these levels up to date on your chart.
