Facebook, Inc. (NASDAQ:FB) turns 15
Mark Zuckerberg launched Facebook on February 4, 2004 — 15 years ago to the day on Monday.
Since then, Facebook has become the most popular social networking site in the world, while Zuckerberg’s net worth has exploded to more than $60 billion.
In recent years, Zuckerberg’s leadership has come into question — and the scrutiny has ramped up following a bombshell report that it knew about Russian efforts to interfere in the 2016 US election.
In honor of Facebook’s 15th anniversary, we took a look at Zuckerberg’s up-and-down career, from Facebook’s origins in a Harvard dorm room to the CEO’s congressional testimony last year.
Take a look at the ups and downs of Zuckerberg’s whirlwind career.

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 30 white candles and 20 black candles for a net of 10 white candles.
An inverted hammer occurred. If this occurs during a downtrend it implies a reversal. Look for a confirmation of the reversal on the bar.
A long upper shadow occurred. This is typically a bearish signal (particularly when it occurs near a high price level, at resistance level, or when the security is overbought).
A shooting star occurred (a shooting star has a small real body near the bottom of the candle and a long upper shadow). During an uptrend(which appears to be the case with FACEBOOK INC A) the long upper shadow indicates that the bears are gaining control and a top may occur.
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.

The last signal was a buy 47 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 226.This is an overbought reading. However, a signal isn’t generated until the indicator crosses below 100. The last signal was a sell 8 period(s) ago.
