Twitter, Inc. (NYSE:TWTR) generating sharply higher sales and profits

Shares of Twitter (NYSE:TWTR) popped 22.1% last month, according to data provided by S&P Global Market Intelligence, after the microblogging specialist reported better-than-expected third-quarter results.

So what

Twitter’s revenue surged 29% to $758 million despite a 9 million decline in monthly active users, to 326 million. The company continues to make progress with its plans to reduce inactive and malicious accounts in order to better combat spam, harassment, and misinformation.

Advertisers appear to be embracing the changes. Ad revenue leapt 29%, with ad engagements increasing 50%.

Moreover, as my colleague Daniel Sparks explains, a 9% increase in daily active users is evidence of how improving the quality of its user base is benefiting Twitter’s business.

All told, Twitter’s third-quarter adjusted (non-GAAP) net income soared 109% to $163 million, or $0.21 per share.

Overall, the bias in prices is: Downwards.

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

By the way, prices are vulnerable to a correction towards 32.86.

The projected upper bound is: 35.11.

The projected lower bound is: 28.78.

The projected closing price is: 31.95.


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 6 white candles and 4 black candles for a net of 2 white candles. During the past 50 bars, there have been 29 white candles and 21 black candles for a net of 8 white candles.
