14:54 EDTDALDelta Air Lines technical comments ahead of results
The shares have broadly underperformed in the last three months, trading down over 15%. The downtrend began at the start of September, with price declining from $40.97 to a low at $30.12 which was hit yesterday. Trading of late has been notably volatile. If the news is better than expected, a first important upside objective would be at $33.50, the high of today's session. A move to $33.50 to $34 would have the effect of stopping the near-waterfall in price. To turn the shares bullish would take a move above $36.95, a pivot high on a closing basis from earlier in the month. On a long-term chart, the trend would shift to neutral from bearish if that high were reached. If the news or outlook contain further negative surprises, the first downside would be the low of today's session at $30.43. A move to that level or lower would confirm the current downtrend. Additional support levels to watch as potential downside objectives on an increasing scale of bad news would be at $28.78, $27.46, and $25.61.
