Stocks on Wall Street were mixed as the averages moved in a tighter range than they had during the first two trading sessions of the week.

ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the Department of Energy reported that crude supplies grew by 2.62M barrels, roughly in-line with forecasts. In Japan, the governor of its central bank offered to step down three weeks before the end of his term, fueling speculation that accelerated and more aggressive stimulus measures may follow and sparking a 3.8% run-up in the Nikkei average... COMPANY NEWS: Dow component Walt Disney (DIS) opened the session at all time highs after the company's quarterly results beat consensus estimates. Citigroup also raised its price target on Disney stock to $63 from $54, but shares finished off their early highs, up 23c, or 0.42%, to $54.52... Elan (ELN) shares slid $1.06, or 10.13%, to $9.40 after the company agreed to sell its 50% interest in the Tysabri multiple sclerosis drug to Biogen (BIIB) for $3.25B in cash and future royalty payments. Biogen shares rose $3.62, or 2.3%, to $160.98 following the announcement... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was BIOLASE (BIOL), up 55c, or 19.43%, to $3.38 after receiving FDA clearance for a soft tissue laser device. Also higher was Metals USA (MUSA), up $2.35, or 12.84%, to $20.65 after agreeing to be acquired by Reliance Steel (RS) for $20.65 per share. Reliance steel also gained $5.56, or 8.59%, to $70.25 following the news. Among those trading higher after earnings were Shutterfly (SFLY), up $6.81, or 20.27%, to $40.40 and Take-Two Interactive (TTWO), up $1.78, or 14.06%, to $14.44.

Among those trading lower after earnings were C.H. Robinson (CHRW), down $6.51, or 9.71%, to $60.50 and Calix (CALX), down 83c, or 9.75%, to $7.68...

11:11 EDTMSFTMicrosoft technical notes before earnings, levels to watch
On a long-term basis the stock has a potential double top pattern that would be confirmed on a breakdown below $40. In a shorter time frame the stock is range-bound between $45 at the low and $50 at the high. If the news is bearish, a breakdown below $45 would put the shares on a path for a test at that $40 support. A breakdown below $40 would see next support at $39.27 and then at $38.56. The downside target from the double top would be to the $30 area over time. If the news is a bullish surprise, a breakout above $50 would see next resistance at $53.13 and then at $55. Both are levels not seen since the year 2000.
