Here's The One Stock That Benefits From All This Geopolitical Chaos

Published 08/16/2019, 12:22 AM

As you all know, the current geopolitical picture is nothing short of chaotic. Every single day we hear about trade wars, Hong Kong protests, fighting between India and Pakistan, Middle East tensions, European debt problems and so much more. While all of these major geopolitical events can move stock markets and affect investor decisions: there is one stock that seems to benefit from it, Twitter Inc . (NYSE:TWTR).

Everyone is using Twitter right now. The biggest user of Twitter is actually the President of the United States. We have trading algorithms that simply babysit every tweet that comes out of the White House. Stock markets move percentage points simply on the back of tweets almost everyday now. In fact, traders simply wait for a tweet from President Trump at 3:30 pm ET every single trading day when the markets are lower.

Twitter Inc.

The current chart pattern for TWTR stock is actually pretty decent at this moment. The stock seems to be consolidating on the daily chart. The share price is still trading well above its 50-day moving average. This is showing much more relative strength than many other leading equities right now. TWTR stock still has a lot of resistance around the $44.50 to $45.00 level, but the longer the consolidation base the higher the stock could go. I'll be watching this pattern closely over the next couple of weeks as it has not given me a buy trigger yet, but it is on my radar now for more upside action.
