In March, Elon Musk officially started the process of acquiring Twitter for $44 billion. Some people believe that Musk’s contract was a mistake on his behalf, and they point to the fact that he is eager to expose his dirty laundry in court in order to get out of it as proof of this. After the conclusion of the trial in Delaware, which will take place later this month, it is possible that Musk may be ordered not only to pay Twitter damages but also to acquire the business against his will.
But, here, I put the news and fundamentals aside and take an additional analysis approach and focus on the relative strength of the Twitter (TWTR) stock price and Twitter technical analysis as shown in the video below.
In short, the following Youtube video shows how TWTR stock has been strong while its industry peers in the US have been selling. And how Twitter stock is strong, within the stock market as a whole.

Oh, an important note! Remember that Twitter is reporting its quarterly earnings on 25 October (not confirmed). The stock price may react strongly, up or down, following this key event. The predicted move after earnings announcement was ±10.2% on average vs an average of the actual earnings moves of 9.5% (in absolute terms). Investors and traders should also find the expected move of TWTR before earnings, as derived from its implied straddle value.
