14:46 EDTWDCWestern Digital technical commentary ahead of earnings
The stock is trading just below its 50-day moving average heading into earnings. On a technical basis the stock does exhibit a topping pattern that could continue on weak news, or be resolved by a strong move higher. The first big level of support is at the $90 area. A move to that level, and eventually lower, would confirm the topping pattern has become dominant and would turn the trend bearish. Support below $90 would be at $88.23. If the news is a bullish surprise, initial resistance would be at the 50-day at $99.98. Thereafter resistance would be at $104.95 and $109.09.
