12:10 EDTMSMorgan Stanley has an active bearish pattern ahead of earnings
There is an active bearish head and shoulders pattern on the daily chart that was confirmed on a move below $35.50. Ahead of earnings the question is whether news will halt and reverse the pattern, or accelerate its completion. If the news is as bearish as traders currently expect, the pattern may continue until it reaches completion at the $31 area. If the new is more bullish than the existence of the pattern itself suggests, then a move above $35.50 would neutralize the pattern. Upside objectives to watch would be at $36.13, and $38.09.

15:12 EDTMSU.S. Supreme Court decision gives homeowners leeway to rescind mortgage loans
In an unanimous ruling, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled on Jesinoski vs. Countrywide Home Loans that homeowners are allowed to rescind home mortgages within the three years allotted under the Truth in Lending Act of 1968 by providing written notice to his/her lender. The court ruled that the borrowers were not required to file suit against the lender, which the respondents, Countrywide, claimed. The notice of rescission was sufficient to clear the homeowners of any obligation to the loan, provided they do it within the allotted time. Countrywide Home Loans is a subsidiary of Bank of America (BAC). Other publicly traded companies in the banking space include Citi (C), Goldman Sachs (GS), JPMorgan (JPM), Morgan Stanley (MS), U.S. Bancorp (USB) and Wells Fargo (WFC). Reference Link
