Twitter, Inc. (NYSE:TWTR) slide to recent lows
Twitter shares have taken a beating after the social media company announced its daily monthly users had dropped and will probably continue to drop as it continues to remove fake accounts.
The company’s shares plummeted 20 per cent to US$34.12, the largest single-day drop in more than four years. However, its stock is still up at 42 per cent for the financial year.
The San Francisco-based company warned investors to expect user numbers to fall further as it took greater action to block fake and offensive accounts.
According to the Washington Post, Twitter deleted more than 70 million illegitimate accounts in May and June alone and says it continues to delete accounts at a rate of 1 million per day. The statistics raise doubts over the longevity of social media business models that rely first and foremost on genuine new users.
Overall, the bias in prices is: Downwards.
Note: this chart shows extraordinary price action to the downside.
The projected upper bound is: 39.17.
The projected lower bound is: 29.12.
The projected closing price is: 34.15.
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 5 white candles and 5 black candles. During the past 50 bars, there have been 30 white candles and 20 black candles for a net of 10 white candles.
A falling window occurred (where the bottom of the previous shadow is above the top of the current shadow). This usually implies a continuation of a bearish trend.

The last signal was a sell 23 period(s) ago.
Commodity Channel Index (CCI)
