14:03 EDTWHRWhirlpool technical comments before earnings

This is the base of the mid-portion of the familiar "M" shape of the double top. On negative news, it is possible that that area could be tested once again. A move below the $125 area would set the shares on a path to long-term bearish for price trend. On better news, the $147.50 area would be initial resistance. On an increasing scale of positive surprise, next upside objectives would be at $151.84 and $156.66.
