Following a year full of controversy – including the Google Walkout, where employees protested the company’s handling of sexual misconduct allegations – Google is shaking up its diversity and inclusion team.

Google’s chief diversity officer, Danielle Brown, is leaving the company, the company confirmed Thursday to Business Insider. She’ll be replaced by Melonie Parker, who had served as Google’s global head of diversity, equity, and inclusion for the last 9 months.

Brown joined on at Google as vice president of employee engagement and head of diversity in June 2017. In the two years since Brown took charge of Google’s diversity efforts, the company has faced a barrage of scandals and controversies.

A few months after Brown started, Google software engineer James Damore released a manifesto saying the company needed to be more tolerant of employees’ conservative viewpoints, and argued women were underrepresented in tech because of “biological causes” that made them inferior to men. Brown was inundated with racist and sexist insults on Twitter after Google fired Damore.

Many ex-Google employees have since come forward with stories of racial and gender discrimination at the search giant, furthering Silicon Valley’s longstanding perception as a “boys’ club.” One former employee told the Guardian that she felt “invisible” at Google and like she “didn’t matter.”

More than 8,000 current and former female employees are currently pursuing a class action lawsuit against Google, alleging pay discrimination.

Overall, the bias in prices is: Upwards.

Note: this chart shows extraordinary price action to the upside.

The projected upper bound is: 1,246.86.

The projected lower bound is: 1,167.00.

The projected closing price is: 1,206.93.


A white body occurred (because prices closed higher than they opened).
During the past 10 bars, there have been 6 white candles and 4 black candles for a net of 2 white candles. During the past 50 bars, there have been 27 white candles and 23 black candles for a net of 4 white candles.

A spinning top occurred (a spinning top is a candle with a small real body). Spinning tops identify a session in which there is little price action (as defined by the difference between the open and the close). During a rally or near new highs, a spinning top can be a sign that prices are losing momentum and the bulls may be in trouble.

Three white candles occurred in the last three days. Although these candles were not big enough to create three white soldiers, the steady upward pattern is bullish.

Momentum Indicators

Momentum is a general term used to describe the speed at which prices move over a given time period. Generally, changes in momentum tend to lead to changes in prices. This expert shows the current values of four popular momentum indicators.

Stochastic Oscillator

One method of interpreting the Stochastic Oscillator is looking for overbought areas (above 80) and oversold areas (below 20). The Stochastic Oscillator is 35.6692. This is not an overbought or oversold reading. The last signal was a sell 2 period(s) ago.

Relative Strength Index (RSI)

The RSI shows overbought (above 70) and oversold (below 30) areas. The current value of the RSI is 58.77. This is not a topping or bottoming area. A buy or sell signal is generated when the RSI moves out of an overbought/oversold area. The last signal was a sell 14 period(s) ago.

Commodity Channel Index (CCI)

The CCI shows overbought (above 100) and oversold (below -100) areas. The current value of the CCI is 59. This is not a topping or bottoming area. The last signal was a buy 8 period(s) ago.


The Moving Average Convergence/Divergence indicator (MACD) gives signals when it crosses its 9 period signal line. The last signal was a sell 12 period(s) ago.
