How to Trade Facebook (FB) Earnings Wash-out. Technical Charting for Swing Trading and Day Trading. Member Edition of Report.
Facebook, Inc. (FB) plunged in after hours trade today falling from 218.62 high of day to 164.30 in a spectacular after hours trading session.
In this report are the technical charting details for trading Facebook in the coming days and weeks. The charts below will assist you on short time frame daytrading in premarket and market open tomorrow. Also included in this report are longer time frame daytrading levels and swing trading buy sell triggers for Facebook stock trade.
The reason for the sell-off is detailed in a Market Watch article from earlier today;
Facebook stock drops more than 20% after warning that revenue growth will take a hit
Facebook earnings include ‘nightmare guidance’ that lopped more than $100 billion off its market cap in after-hours trading.
“As I’ve said on past calls, we’re investing so much in security that it will significantly impact our profitability,” Zuckerberg said. “We’re starting to see that this quarter.”
The stock didn’t fall off a cliff until Chief Financial Officer David Wehner disclosed that the social-media giant expects the revenue-growth slowdown to continue.
“Our total revenue-growth rates will continue to decelerate in the second half of 2018, and we expect our revenue-growth rates to decline by high-single-digit percentages from prior quarters sequentially in both Q3 and Q4,” he said on the conference call. Wehner also said Facebook still expects expenses to grow 50% to 60% from last year.
The last time we traded a Facebook wash-out the trade was one of our biggest winners of 2018 (thus far). We nailed the bottom of the sell-off and we followed the trade through as it gained upside until today. We have been out of the trade for a few weeks now in anticipation for today’s earnings announcement.
Below is one of many alerts issued to members in the last Facebook sell-off, we were in nice and early and banked considerably as a result:

You can find the April 11, 2018 Facebook trade article from our blog here:
During the last Facebook sell-off swing trade price plunged in to the 150’s and the article link takes the trade step by step from the low 160’s.
When this first set-up I alerted it a number of times in different ways on different platforms – I even texted people and sent private messages. I was screaming this from the rooftops..
As time goes on in your trading life you learn over and over again how this particular type of set-up has profit written all over it. The secret however, is knowing where your trading chart structure is in advance of trade getting to that area of restructuring after the wash-out. Knowing that is key.
STEP 1: Getting in to the Facebook trade in premarket or at market open tomorrow morning (Thursday July 26, 2018).
The chart below will help you with short time-frame entries to get your positioning right, get on the right side of the trade so that you can then leg in to a sizeable swing trade if you want from there forward (pending trading action in the morning).
My trading plan for Facebook will be to do exactly that, daytrade it in premarket tomorrow with the objective of getting some profit side room in the trade so that I can leg in to a more significant swing trading position.
I should note that considering the company’s guidance on the earnings call today that I do not expect the same ROI as the last trade we started in April of 2018.
