Social Media Stock Divergence

|Includes: Microsoft Corporation (MSFT)

I'm watching LNKD today for a possible trade. Comparing chart to FB and TWTR shows a minor divergence over the past couple of days. Both FB and TWTR looked to be breaking out yesterday, pushing above upper bollinger bands. LNKD has some similar trading characteristics but hasn't shown the same break out pattern. Rather the bollingers are tightening which usually indicates a volatility squeeze is on the horizon. Today's action of the three stocks will hopefully provide more insight and potentially an opportunity to get into LNKD.

Disclosure: The author is long FB, TWTR.

Additional disclosure: May buy LNKD in 72 hours. Both FB and TWTR positions have a covered call open against them.
