Twitter, Inc. (NYSE:TWTR) a technical goldmine

Social stocks have gotten slammed, but one has survived the sector’s meltdown.

Over the past month, Twitter has rallied nearly 18 percent, while Facebook has dropped 6 percent, Snap 10 percent and Alphabet 6 percent. In the past three months, as the rest tanked double digits, Twitter has sustained just a nearly 1 percent drop.

One technician said the charts are setting up for an even bigger pop for the social network.

“Twitter’s stock is actually a technical goldmine,” Bill Baruch, president of Blue Line Futures, said Wednesday on CNBC’s “Trading Nation. ”

A cup and handle forms when a stock pulls back and then returns to the beginning of a formation’s peak, followed by a shorter stretch of losses representing a “handle.” It typically is seen as a bullish indicator.

Twitter ended its third quarter with 326 million monthly active users, more than two-thirds of those from outside the U.S. Daily active users grew by 9 percent, though that marked its slowest quarterly increase in two years.

Overall, the bias in prices is: Upwards.

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