Alphabet Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) was in the news for it shutting Huawei out from Android after a 90 day license is up. Alphabet had to shut Huawei out of Android because the Trump administration placed the Chinese company on a tech blacklist that prevented american companies from doing business with it.

Nomura Instinet believes the number in the worst case could be $375-$425 million annually. Given Alphabet reported revenue of around $130 billion last year, the amount isn’t a big deal.

A black body occurred (because prices closed lower than they opened).

An engulfing bearish line occurred (where a black candle’s real body completely contains the previous white candle’s real body). The engulfing bearish pattern is bearish during an uptrend. It then signifies that the momentum may be shifting from the bulls to the bears.
If the engulfing bearish pattern occurs during a downtrend (which appears to be the case with ALPHABET INC C), it may be a last engulfing bottom which indicates a bullish reversal. The test to see if this is the case is if the next candle closes above the bottom the current (black) candle’s real body.
