15:03 EDTGSGoldman Sachs technical notes ahead of results
The shares have been in a downtrend since the stock hit its 52-week high of $198.06 in early December of last year. If the downtrend continues following earnings, there are some important support levels to watch as potential downside objectives. A first major test may come at the 200-day moving average, last at $175.79. If that support failed to hold, a pivot low at $171.26 would be next support. That pivot was from the October market lows. Next support thereafter would be at $168.02. If there is more bullish news than traders currently appear to expect, the following resistance levels could become upside objectives: $180.80, $183.96, $186.58, and $189.99.
