15:11 EDTFLFoot Locker technical notes before earnings
The stock is in a classically bullish uptrend, testing down to support ahead of earnings. If the news continues to be bullish, the first resistance level of note on the way up is the life high at $74.95. If that level is broken on the upside, a run to the $80 area or higher would be possible. Shares would however be extended on a short-term basis technically were that to happen. If the news is a bearish surprise, the first support level to watch would be at the bottom of the price channel at $71.06, the 30-day moving average. A breakdown below that support would snap the uptrend. Next support levels to watch as potential upside objectives would be at $68.50, $65.80, and $63.66.

14:30 EDTROSTRoss Stores technical comments ahead of earnings news
The shares are trading close to life highs ahead of earnings. The trend has become somewhat parabolic which could mean a harder landing if there were to be a negative surprise. First support on the downside would be the 30-day moving average at $53.27. If there is a breakdown below that support, next levels to watch as potential downside objectives would be at $50.50 and $48.61. A move down to the latter level or lower would confirm a topping action in shares. If the news is a bullish surprise, the only resistance level remaining on the chart is the life high at $56.68. A breakout above that high would leave open a run to $60. That could leave shares further extended technically, which may not be sustainable over the longer-term.

Barish acknowledges less same-store-sales visibility but keeps a Buy rating on the name. He views the post-earnings selloff as overdone and sees the opportunity for a "bounceback" should the company's trends improve in the second half of the year.
