Twitter, Inc. (NYSE:TWTR) attractive at current prices
Tech — that high-growth sector that’s become a punching bag — is trying to rally today, after the Nasdaq nose-dived as Silicon Valley’s stars were put through the wringer on Capitol Hill.
One influential trader has bought Twitter’s dip.
“I’m long $TWTR here,” says New Trader U’s Steve Burns, who delivers our call of the day. Burns says in a tweet that he gobbled up shares in Jack Dorsey’s baby TWTR, -5.87% around yesterday’s close, when they finished just below $33 after a tumble of 6%.
But he’s not planning to stick with his Twitter position no matter what.
It will be time to sell if the stock finishes a session under its 200-day moving average, says Burns, a trader and writer with 120,000 Twitter followers who has been featured in MarketWatch’s reporting on “need to follow” Twitterati.

A big black candle occurred. This is bearish, as prices closed significantly lower than they opened. If the candle appears when prices are “high,” it may be the first sign of a top. If it occurs when prices are confronting an overhead resistance area (e.g., a moving average, trendline, or price resistance level), the long black candle adds credibility to the resistance. Similarly, if the candle appears as prices break below a support area, the long black candle confirms the failure of the support area.
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 23 white candles and 27 black candles for a net of 4 black candles.
