Game Trader: video game and tech stock chart analysis - October 2018

The stock market is heading into the fourth quarter of 2018, and Shacknews has some key levels to watch in your favorite video game and tech stocks.


As the global stock market enters into the fourth quarter of 2018, many institutional investors take a look at the "technicals" of their portfolio of stocks. Technical analysis does not factor in fundamentals, the study of a company's financial statements, but merely looks at charts. I have put together a longer look at all of the stocks in our Game Trader coverage universe. Each quarter, there are some stocks that set themselves up for a multi-month trade. This video highlights a few key levels to pay attention to across a number of stocks. Please take a look.

For more interviews, gameplay footage, and more, be sure to subscribe to Shacknews and GamerHub.TV on YouTube.

I will be putting together a fundamental analysis feature to go live in the near future. I do plan on updating our Game Trader video game and tech stock ratings to account for changes in my opinions on the overall market and stocks like Facebook.
