:D What can I say that I haven't said many times. STOP LISTENING TO THE MEDIA AND HYPE. AAPL will be a $300 stock if it doesn't split first. It should have split by their standards at 200ish. I do not own AAPL at the present time. A choice not based on TA but on tax considerations. B) I'll be back in soon. Best to all, mss

Let's call this AAPL's days of aggression. That is to say, before the NYSI turns signaling the longer term swing, there is the first cyclic low above a low in the NYMO to serve as an aggressive trader's buy signal. Call it jumping the gun. Call it taking the bigger risk. In a bull market call it stealing money.

There can be better stocks on those days (BIDU comes to mind at the moment :lol: ), but since a lot of bears like to pick on AAPL -- FYI -- here's how AAPL looks in this market on days of aggressive buys:

Ten consecutive days up into a dreaded near doji at the close. Irrational exuberance, anyone? A plum example of when to sell too soon? How obvious was this sell-off going to be? Only question was would it come from a higher number or straight down from the close.

Resistance for the moment appears to be at the 305 gap, and support at 294 and change. Given that it may have finally prompted a right-on-time typical market pullback (see August for example on the chart below), and given there is now overhead supply that will want to get out, making bounces suspect, there is probably more downside to come. But it's still a great stock so if we get a market pullback, whenever the market decline subsides, look for it to be back in rally mode.

Good AAPL trading to everyone.

Just thought I'd bring this thread up again on this sad day. Been writing here about AAPL and Steve Jobs since 2007. Once again: Thanks, Steve.
