The key technical feature on the chart is a potential bearish descending triangle top. This pattern began forming last October. The trigger level for the pattern to become active would be below the $130 level. If that pattern does trigger, downside potential for the pattern is to the $115 area, presuming it completes. If the news is a bullish surprise, the first significant resistance level is at the 50-day moving average at $135.56. A breakout above that level would void the bearish pattern. Next resistance levels to watch as potential upside objectives would be at $136.70 and then at $141.17.
