Twitter Loses Its Tweet
     Chaos Clinic for 1/24/2020

Back in April 2017, Twitter showed some signs that it might rally, after having
missed out on most of the decade long bull market. After making a small base at 15, it
jumped to 21, then back to 16. At that time, I used my WinXGO program to compute
an XGO forecast, then I filtered it with a 1752 day Zero Delay filter to bring out it's long
term Major Cycle, which is due to Jupiter. That forecast is the heavy blue line
on the chart above. Also shown on the chart are some letters, which are simply points
of interest on the chart, not any kind of wave count or lettering. Also shown on the chart
are two exponential moving averages of 192 and 576 days. These are the 3rd and 9th harmonics
of the Major cycle.

The Major cycle turned up at point a. The upturn was confirmed by upturns in both EXMAs, and
their crossing. At b, prices advanced a harmonic 15 points, then congested, but stayed above
the EXMAs. Thiss rally was fueled by profitability. By July 2018 prices jumped another 15
points to c. From there, they collapsed back halfwayto a congestion at d. The congestion is
marked by the convergencde of the EXMAs.

In April 2019 prices managed to get above the 192 day EXMA, and rally up into a double top at e.
Then in October, prices dropped vertically back to the nominal midpoint at 30.This particular drop
came when Twitter announced they would not carry 2020 political ads.

Finally, at g, the Major Cycle turns down. Prices have rallied up to the EXMAs in what looks like
a bounce in a down move. The bounce looks like a technical move off of the nominal 50% retrace.
Now that the Major cycle is turning down, I think Twitter has lost its tweet.

Personally, I managed to catch some of the 2017-2018 move from 21 to 36, but after that the volatility
was more than I liked. Of course, I was annoyed that I missed the move up to c, but was happy
that I also missed the move down to d. But I had no inclination to try to sell TWTR, knowing that
the Major Cycle was up, until now.

In this long bull market, TWTR was a laggard, being late to the party. Now it may the the canary
in the coal mine, warning of trouble ahead for the bull market.
