Stocks to watch:
Snap Inc (SNAP)
Snap has been in a downward slump since the latter part of October as Apple announced revenue miss due to privacy changes mad by Apple to its iOS.
Google is limiting Android tracking on smartphones, resulting in more downward pressure on all social media platforms as digital advertising will be affected which are the major revenue sources on social media platforms. The result ccame in as Google stated that it will “limit sharing of user data with third parties and operate without cross-app identifiers, including advertising ID.”
Technically the chart is still setting up for a short, as we got a good retracement back up to the 50 daily moving average, a break and close below the 20 day moving average should still see more downside to $27.60. Snap is currently down 0.82% in the pre-market trading at $37.70.
