Facebook, Inc. (NASDAQ:FB) set to report second-quarter results

As Facebook (FB) stock hovers in a buy zone, the social media giant is set to report second-quarter results. The Facebook earnings report will arrive after the market close Wednesday.

Wall Street expects Facebook earnings, on an adjusted basis, to reach $1.87 per share, up 8% from the year-ago period. Analysts predict revenue of $16.5 billion, which is up 25% but marks the fifth-straight quarter of decelerating growth.

Facebook stock closed at 202.36, up a fraction on the stock market today.

The stock remains in buy range, after rising above its 198.58 buy point from a cup-with-handle base on July 9.

Overall, the bias in prices is: Upwards.

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

By the way, prices are vulnerable to a correction towards 189.64.

The projected upper bound is: 212.94.

The projected lower bound is: 192.34.

The projected closing price is: 202.64.


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 28 white candles and 22 black candles for a net of 6 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.

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

Relative Strength Index (RSI)

The RSI shows overbought (above 70) and oversold (below 30) areas. The current value of the RSI is 62.51. 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 6 period(s) ago.
