12:00 EDTHALHalliburton technical comments ahead of results
The shares have been beaten down along with declining crude prices, but have begun a process of basing since early December of last year. That base is defined by lows at the $37.50 area and highs at the $41 area. If the shares can break above the $41 level on news that is more bullish than currently expected, it could begin a recovery process in the stock. Resistance levels to watch in that event would be at $42.20 and then at $44.37. If the shares were to break below the low of the base at the $37.50 area, notably taking out the 52-week low at $37.21, then there would be a resumption of the longer-term downtrend. Support levels to watch in that case would be at $36.40, $35.32, and $33.07.
