Twitter Daily Chart Analysis

  • Shares are at the point of a pennant pattern and look like they could make a large move in either direction anytime now.
  • The stock is still trading within the pennant pattern and may continue to be squeezed within pattern support and resistance until it sees an above-average volume day and pushes above or below one of the levels.
  • The stock is trading below the 50-day moving average (green), but above the 200-day moving average (blue), indicating the stock is likely in a period of consolidation.
  • The 50-day moving average may act as an area of resistance, while the stock could find support near the 200-day moving average.
  • The Relative Strength Index (RSI) has been falling the past couple of weeks, but looks to have bounced back some the past few days. The RSI sits at 43 now, meaning there has been more selling pressure than buying pressure the past few weeks.
