AAPL Price Action Review (Update) – 12/25/2013

AAPL gap down when the expected deal announcement with China Mobile did not materialize on December 18. And when the announcement of the deal finally came before the new trading week starts, the market greeted the actual announcement with a gap up open and closed with more than $20 gain for the session. This opening gap probably will not be filled prior to getting back to previous pivot high near 594 if can close above the 575 level. If the gap gets filled without reaching 594 first, then the 594 target could be in doubt.

TWTR On Target

TWTR appears to be marching toward the bull flag price target near 74. Even on Christmas Eve with an abbreviated trading session, its stock price advanced with conviction and heavy volume. It has reached the 141% Fib extension target and more. It is currently sitting near the 80% of the bull flag projected move. The full extent of the bull flag move is near the 74 level. As TWTR make its way to the 74 level, it could encounter resistance at the 161% Fib extension which is slightly under the 74 level. Having the price near the 80% of the projected measure move and nearing the 161% Fib extension, these technical factors could become the catalyst for a pull back since TWTR has gained more than 25% in the last 4 trading sessions.

Getting Nervous

The DJIA closed up once again, and that mean it made another new all time high. One would think the market technicians are celebrating with joy and holiday cheers. Well, maybe those technicians that only watch the stock charts and pay little or no attention to the market breadth are celebrating. Those that are the true student of the market are probably getting a bit nervous. Here are some of the things that cause these market technicians to be nervous: 1) non-confirmed DJIA new high, 2) down volume greater than up volume, 3) declining issues outnumbered advance issues, 4) less than 200 issues made new 52 week high, 5) issues made new 52 week high nearly equal to number of issues made new 52 week low. Notice these are all market breadth, not a derivative of the price, i.e. RSI, moving average, etc.

Rerun Once Again

It’s just like watching a rerun on TV because we have seen this picture before; the DJIA makes a new all time high along with the SP500 but without the Nasdaq 100 and the Russell 2000 making a new high, and no confirmation from the Dow Theory.

Homebuilder Building Up

But in defying the obvious, here is SPF, a homebuilder that appears to be setting up for a possible move to its 52 week high.

Good News Is No Longer Bad

After a good job report last Friday, the market took the good news and rallied. Many market participants were looking for the market to drop on a good job report as it will increase the probability for the Fed to taper. But as in most if not all instances that when the majority is leaning on one side, the market will go to the other.

AAPL Price Action Review (Update) – 12/8/2013

AAPL Price Action Review (Update) – 12/5/2013

AAPL got a bump on the news of a deal with China Mobile. As it got near the 576/579 resistance region that was discussed in the previous video, it faded back near the 565 level. Looking at the Open Interest for the weekly OpEx, it appears there is a good possibility it will get pin at 565 or 570. But the near term target remain to be the pivot high of 594 and the trend is still up.

AAPL Price Action Review (Update) – 12/3/2013

AAPL continues to move higher after a minor pullback through the 554/555 level. The price gapped up on the open due to some analyst upgrade, that voided the opportunity for AAPL longs to add or to initiate a position. There appears to be a confluence near the 576-579. Although the near term target is the pivot high near 594, this confluence level could pose some resistance, and maybe at that level AAPL could setup an opportunity for the sideline longs. In the meantime, for those that are long on AAPL, be sure to protect your gains.

AAPL Price Action Review (Update) – 12/1/2013

Ever since AAPL found support near 114 and reclaimed the 522 resistance/support level, it proceed to breakout the 529 pivot level and triggered a move toward the 554/555 level. On the day after Thanksgiving, an abbreviated trading session, AAPL broke through the 555 with little resistance. As the market resumes trading after the Thanksgiving holiday, it would not be a surprise if AAPL retrace back to retest the 555 level before it attempt a move toward the 594 region.
