Twitter, Inc. (NYSE:TWTR) shares are being guided upward

It has been incredibly erratic action, but progressive action nonetheless. That is, Twitter shares are being guided upward, squeezed toward the narrowing tip of an ascending wedge pattern. More recently, TWTR stock has been finding support at levels that suggest the buyers are working on forcing a breakout.

That won’t be easy, particularly given how overbought Twitter shares are since the bottom made in early 2017. But, the pattern that has taken shape thus far isn’t atypical of initial public offerings. Every one has to fall apart sooner than later, but most everyone eventually shrugs it off and works its way into a bullish mode.

  • The bigger-picture in only evident through the long-term lens of the weekly chart, framed by light blue lines. The upper boundary of that pattern currently rests at $44.70.
  • Zooming into the daily chart another wedge becomes evident. Framed by red dashed lines, a rising trading range has materialized. There’s still room for wide swings though.
  • Since May, the gray 100-day moving average line and the purple 50-day line have both stepped up as technical support.
  • Although it’s not ideal, the weekly chart also suggests a pretty good cup-and-handle pattern. The brimline, of course, is the ceiling that connects all the major peaks going back to mid-2014.
