Twitter, Inc. (NYSE:TWTR) entering a new chapter with a recent surge above a potential buy point

After a much-hyped IPO in November 2013, social media giant Twitter (TWTR) has struggled to maintain any significant stock price appreciation. But the company may be entering a new chapter with a recent surge above a potential buy point. Twitter stock is forming a new base in the current stock market, so the stock isn’t a buy right now.

So for now, be patient and wait for a new breakout opportunity.

Twitter is a social networking service that allows users to post and interact with messages known as ‘tweets.’ Twitter competes with the likes of FANG stock Facebook (FB) and re-emergent Snap (SNAP).

Twitter Stock: Fundamentals

Twitter generates money from selling ads to businesses. The company is attempting to become the go-to source of update for live events, like sports, news and entertainment. Higher traffic and engagement levels will increase ad demand on Twitter, boosting ad prices and the company’s sales.

Investors also look closely at Twitter’s new metric, Monetizable Daily Active Users, or mDAUs, to discern if the platform is gaining or losing popularity.

Twitter stock surged over 15% on April 23 after the company’s stronger-than-expected earnings results. In the most recent quarter, earnings and sales increased 131% and 18% vs. the year-ago period, respectively. Analysts on consensus expected the company’s earnings to decline 6%.

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 35.52.

The projected upper bound is: 39.90.

The projected lower bound is: 34.22.

The projected closing price is: 37.06.


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 26 white candles and 24 black candles for a net of 2 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.

Three black candles occurred in the last three days. Although these candles were not big enough to create three black crows, the steady downward pattern is bearish.

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

One method of interpreting the Stochastic Oscillator is looking for overbought areas (above 80) and oversold areas (below 20). The Stochastic Oscillator is 14.7252. This is an oversold reading. However, a signal is not generated until the Oscillator crosses above 20 The last signal was a sell 13 period(s) ago.

Relative Strength Index (RSI)

The RSI shows overbought (above 70) and oversold (below 30) areas. The current value of the RSI is 48.44. 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 5 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 -165.This is an oversold reading. However, a signal isn’t generated until the indicator crosses above -100. The last signal was a sell 9 period(s) ago.


The Moving Average Convergence/Divergence indicator (MACD) gives signals when it crosses its 9 period signal line. The last signal was a sell 4 period(s) ago.
