Snap Inc. (NYSE:SNAP), Twitter (NYSE:TWTR) – Chart Wars: Snap, Twitter Stocks Near Entry Signals To Go Long For 2022 — Here’s What To Watch For
Snap Inc (NYSE: SNAP) and Twitter Inc (NYSE: TWTR) were sliding significantly on Tuesday in sympathy with a number of technology-based stocks, losing more than 7% and 5%, respectively, intraday while the SPDR S&P 500 fell about 0.33%.
Both stocks have, mostly, been trading in a heavy downtrend recently with Snap plummeting over 48% since its Sept. 24 all-time high of 83.84 and Twitter falling about 41% since it’s Oct. 20 high of $68.41. In contrast, the SPY rose over 11% during the fourth quarter of 2021 to reach an all-time high of $479.98.
On Tuesday, both stocks fell into territory they had not traded in since Nov. 20, 2020, which is bearish, and both stocks have settled into falling channels on the weekly chart. A falling channel is a bearish pattern, where a stock prints a series of lower highs and lower lows between two downward sloping parallel lines, but bullish traders can watch for a break up from the pattern as an indication of a trend change is about to begin.
It should be noted that events such as the general markets turning bearish, negative reactions to earnings prints and negative news headlines about a stock can quickly invalidate bullish patterns and breakouts. As the saying goes, “The trend is your friend until it isn’t,” and any trader in a bullish position should have a clear stop set in place and manage their risk versus reward.
