ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., initial jobless claims fell 42K from the prior week to 346K, versus an expectation for them to decline more modestly to 360K. Import prices declined 0.5% in March compared to the prior month, which was in-line with expectations, while export prices fell 0.4%, versus expectations for a 0.1% gain... COMPANY NEWS: Shares of a number of big-name tech companies were weaker after research firms International Data Corporation and Gartner both estimated that PC sales declined by double-digits in the first three months of the year.

13:37 EDTINTCIntel technical notes ahead of results
The key technical feature on the 1-year chart is the potential large-scale bearish head and shoulders. That pattern began forming in October 2014. The neckline is at the $30 level. If the news is more bearish than anticipated and the $30 level is broken on the downside, the pattern will become active. Downside potential for the pattern if it remains active and completes is to the $23 to $22.50 area. On positive news, there is a smaller potential bullish inverted head and shoulders pattern that would become active above the $32.50 level which corresponds to the 50-day moving average. Upside potential for that pattern would be to the $35 to $35.50 level. Resistance above that area would be at $36.45.
