The Company's products, include a variety of programmable logic devices and hardcopy application-specific integrated circuits.

Altera's stock range is defined by its calculated support defined at $30.89 and by the resistance level at $36.03; the stock is clearly over-extended from support, making it harder for participants to establish fresh longs.
Traders don't have a clear entry point for Altera. However, as the stock pulls back towards $30.89 it will definitely provide a reference point to establish a trade.
