14:46 EDTABBVAbbVie technical comments ahead of earnings, levels to watch
The shares have been trending down since hitting the 52-week high of $70.76 back in early December of last year. At the current price of $63.01, the first important support level to watch on negative news or outlook would be at the 200-day moving average, last at $58.04. A test and a bounce there would be bullish, while a breakdown would be bearish for the longer-term uptrend. Levels to watch below the 200-day are at $56.51, and then at $55.80. If the news is a positive surprise, the first resistance level of note as a potential upside objective is at the $65 area. A breakout above $65 would turn the trend to bullish, with next resistance levels at $67.16, $68.29, and the 52-week high at $70.76.
