Alphabet Inc. (NASDAQ:GOOG) faced a new data privacy outcry on Monday

Alphabet’s Google (GOOGL) faced a new data privacy outcry on Monday as the internet giant said it will shut down its Google+ social network for consumers following the disclosure of a software glitch that exposed user’s personal data to software developers. The disclosure sent Google stock down.

Google stock slid 1% to close at 1,155.92 on the stock market today. Shares in Google had traded down as much as 2.1% after the Wall Street Journal reported that a software glitch had disclosed the data of as many as half a million users.

The Google+ social network has failed to develop as a serious rival to Facebook (FB). Facebook stock was down a fraction to 157.25 on Monday. Facebook and Google are facing more lawmaker scrutiny over consumer privacy issues.

Overall, the bias in prices is: Downwards.

The projected upper bound is: 1,184.38.

The projected lower bound is: 1,109.98.

The projected closing price is: 1,147.18.


A black body occurred (because prices closed lower than they opened).
During the past 10 bars, there have been 4 white candles and 6 black candles for a net of 2 black candles. During the past 50 bars, there have been 20 white candles and 30 black candles for a net of 10 black 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 black candles occurred in the last three days. Although these candles were not big enough to create three black crows, the steady downward pattern is bearish.

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.

Relative Strength Index (RSI)

The RSI shows overbought (above 70) and oversold (below 30) areas. The current value of the RSI is 37.57. 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 50 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 -162.This is an oversold reading. However, a signal isn’t generated until the indicator crosses above -100. The last signal was a sell 2 period(s) ago.
