Twitter, Inc. (NYSE:TWTR) stock has more than 15% upside potential
Last week ended on a sour note for stock prices. The rally in bonds that the U.S. Federal Reserve started with their uber dovish statement took its toll on the indices. It’s typical that stocks and bonds move inversely to each other.
Among the wreckage on Wall Street, there were a few stocks that still shined. Twitter(NYSE:TWTR) was one that had a strong week while most struggled. Last week’s performance wasn’t a fluke for TWTR, however. Since March 8, TWTR stock has had a 12% rally. So it has momentum on its side and therein lies the opportunity.
There are decent odds for a bigger rally to unfold especially if the markets in general recover from Friday’s weakness.
Technically, TWTR stock behaves well according to the patterns that present themselves. Currently there is technical reason to expect a rally opportunity. But first there are hurdle levels in the way.
First, it is important to remember that TWTR is a momentum stock so it moves fast in both directions. This makes it difficult to trade with strong conviction because it almost never gives a clear signals to determine good entry points.
If the bulls can overcome Friday’s high they can spark the rally and this should invite the first wave of momentum buyers. $35.50 per share is the next zone where sellers might try to stall the move.
But the biggest battle in this opportunity will probably come from the resistance area between $35.50 and $37 per share. That is where the bears have laid out a cluster of failures from last August, October and December. TWTR stock fell more than 15% each time so the sellers would not want to lose the zone without a fight thereby creating resistance.
But the big carrot is the gap above the resistance from the crash that TWTR had on earnings last July. So ideally the target of the opportunity is all the way to $42 per share but the bulls have to take the first steps and those could come this week.
