Twitter, Inc. (NYSE:TWTR) Takes A Hit Following Suspension Of 70 Million Accounts

Twitter just had its worst day in more than three months on worries over rampant fake accounts.

To investors worried the sky is falling, one chart watcher says these kinds of moves are nothing to sweat.

This is obviously a substantial decline. … Obviously alarming but at the same time not that rare.

Twitter shares moved lower by as much as 12 percent as recently as late March when the tech industry was still in the grips of a sell-off over data privacy. Since going public in November 2013, Twitter shares have fallen by more than 8 percent 19 times.

Twitter had dropped by nearly 10 percent at its session lows on Monday on reports it had suspended as many as 70 million fake accounts in May and June. It pared those losses on assurances from its chief financial officer and ended the session close to 6 percent lower. Its drop takes it back to levels seen in mid-June, a period that marked a new 52-week high.

Monday’s pullback could be an opportunity to dive in.

Overall, the bias in prices is: Upwards.

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

The projected upper bound is: 47.05.

The projected lower bound is: 41.04.

The projected closing price is: 44.04.
