Facebook, Inc. (NASDAQ:FB) could hit new all-time highs
Shares of Facebook have been trading much better over the last six months. Shares are flirting with a move back over $200 and if it can get there, it could trigger a much higher move back to its all-time highs.
While the stock was hammered in late-May and early June, the rebound since has been impressive. The stock has run from roughly $160 to currently just over $195. That rally of almost 22% stands out, both among FAANG stocks and the overall market.
It helps that Facebook unveiled the Libra cryptocurrency. The fact that the currency has so many large supporters adds credibility to the excitement. Adding even more excitement has been the rally in bitcoin. Even though bitcoin prices have come off the recent highs, its explosive — although brief — move to $14,000 rekindled investors’ hope that new highs in the cryptocurrency remain possible.
Should it regain and maintain some of that bullish momentum, Facebook stock is likely to benefit as well.

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 28 white candles and 22 black candles for a net of 6 white candles.
A long lower shadow occurred. This is typically a bullish signal (particularly when it occurs near a low price level, at a support level, or when the security is oversold).
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.
