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.

BB&T's stock range is defined by its calculated support defined at $26.86 and by the resistance level at $31.22; the stock is clearly over-extended from support, making it harder for participants to establish fresh longs.
