Facebook (FB) Stock Chartology: The Playbook Into Year-End

Facebook’s stock slide turned ugly yesterday as it broke down through a well-formed bearish triangle.

Thus far, we have only seen 1 move down in what will likely prove to be a five wave decline for Facebook (FB).

So this move is NOT likely complete.

That said, stocks move in waves, so a strategy / gameplan is important. My current strategy on Facebook stock: Sell rallies into 167-170 for a move down to 149.

Facebook (FB) Daily Chart

The Facebook weekly stock chart (below) is bears some important analysis. Notably, this pullback has reached initial trend line support. 161-162 looks to be quite important.

That said, it likely will be broken on a test of the former lows… will depend on how quickly bulls come to rescue (should that occur).

All together, I expect downside to last into the end of September before a bounce could lead the stock all the way up to 190-200 to form symmetry on the stock chart (with the prior peak) – though the pattern is growing a bit wobbly overall.

The Bottom line:  Facebook stock could be a good buy into the end of September with an upside bounce into Nov/Dec timeframe.
