The stock effectively broke out and grasped the attention of momentum traders, which could eventually push the stock to a different trading range.

BB&T Corporation (NYSE:BBT) operates banking locations in North and South Carolina, Georgia, Virginia, Maryland, West Virginia, Kentucky, Alabama, Indiana, Washington D.C., Florida and Tennessee. The Company offers full-service commercial and retail banking, as well as insurance, retail brokerage, corporate finance, and international banking.

From a technical perspective, it can be expected that previous resistance becomes support, as the new range gets defined. However, given that BB&T is still near the broken resistance level, traders will be focusing on the $29.77 level to see if the stock holds the breakout without rolling over.
