12:35 EDTMETMetLife technical notes before earnings news
Ahead of earnings the downtrend that began in July 2015 has decelerated. The $40 level is a key support, below which a major topping pattern on a long-term chart would be confirmed. This would be bearish for longer-term future price. If the news is negative and the $40 area is taken out on the downside, next support would be at $39.02, $37.80, and $36.64. If the news is a positive surprise, first notable resistance would be at $45.08. Additional resistance levels would be at $46.45 and $48.21.
