10:11 EDTAFLAflac technical comments before earnings news
The key level on the downside for the shares is at the $55 area. This has held quite consistently as support since late 2013. A breakdown below $55 on bearish news would resolve the range bearishly. Next supports below would be at $53.20 and then at the 52-week low at $51.41. If the news is a positive surprise, resistance levels to watch as potential upside objectives would be at $58.54, $60.18, and $61.49.
