Twitter, Inc. (NYSE:TWTR) bearish flag that’s formed

A bearish flag that’s formed following TWTR stock’s post-earnings trend-line breakdown isn’t entirely fake news either. But nor is it the only technical truth on Twitter’s daily price chart. And that could be good news as well for some bulls.

For value-seeking investors TWTR has experienced a steep, but far from uncommon correction of 35%. It’s the kind of decline, if purchased, that can lead to great returns over time. But there’s more too for contrarian-oriented Twitter bulls to consider. Shares are currently oversold, still maintain a series of higher lows relative to the April / May uptrend and are wedged in a support zone backed by Fibonacci and the 200-day simple moving average.

Overall, the bias in prices is: Downwards.

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

By the way, prices are vulnerable to a correction towards 37.35.

The projected upper bound is: 37.83.

The projected lower bound is: 27.47.

The projected closing price is: 32.65.

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.
