15:36 EDTALTRAltera technical comments before earnings
The shares have been in an unusually prolonged consolidation range that began in the summer of 2011. The range has been primarily contained between $31 at the low at $38 at the high. The shares are currently trading almost in the middle of that range. News that is not sufficiently strong will leaves shares rangebound. But a breakdown below $31 or a breakout above $38 would signal a turn in trend from neutral to bearish or bullish, respectively. Below $31 first key support would be at $29.34. Above $38, next resistance would be at $39.65. It should be noted that with ranges of this duration, moves can become extreme and persist in the direction of the range break for an extended period of time.

15:01 EDTXLNXXilinx technical notes before earnings
The shares show a potential bearish head and shoulders pattern on a multi-year chart. The neckline for that pattern is at the $40 area. A breakdown below $40 following earnings would confirm that the pattern is active. Long-term downside potential for the pattern is to the $25 area. Support following a break below $40 would be at $36.24; the 52-week low and low of October of last year. If the news is a positive surprise, it is likely that the potential pattern would become void. A move above the right shoulder of the pattern at the $47 area would break the pattern. Over time the upside reaction on a positive surprise could be equal in magnitude to the expected downside potential of the pattern had it triggered, which is typical behavior for failed technical patterns.
