Alphabet Inc. (NASDAQ:GOOG) Pixel 3 smartphone have experienced issues with apps 

A glitch in some Pixel 3 smartphones that closes apps running in the background is getting a fix in the “coming weeks,” Google told Android Police.

Several Pixel 3 owners have reported via Reddit, Twitter, and various forums that apps they recently used would close themselves when they switch to other apps. Usually, recent and often-used apps stay open and running in the background for convenient quick access when you return to the app.

Instead, some Pixel 3 users have found that their recently-used apps need to fully re-open when they return to them. Other users have found that Spotify, in particular, will randomly close itself when other apps are in use.

Google told Android Police it’s a glitch and it can be patched up with a software update. Let’s hope so because it would be a hardware issue otherwise, where the only fix is to buy a new smartphone with more RAM. I personally haven’t experienced issues with multi-tasking on the Pixel 3 XL I’ve recently used. Either way, here’s to hoping the problem can be fixed with an update.

Overall, the bias in prices is: Downwards.

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

By the way, prices are vulnerable to a correction towards 1,140.40.

The projected upper bound is: 1,099.32.

The projected lower bound is: 973.64.

The projected closing price is: 1,036.48.


A black body occurred (because prices closed lower than they opened).
During the past 10 bars, there have been 5 white candles and 5 black candles. During the past 50 bars, there have been 22 white candles and 28 black candles for a net of 6 black candles.

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.

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 57.8918. This is not an overbought or oversold reading. The last signal was a buy 15 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 38.95. 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 buy 16 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 -112.This is an oversold reading. However, a signal isn’t generated until the indicator crosses above -100. The last signal was a buy 3 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 20 period(s) ago.
