AAPL Loses 100DMA (Again) As Trade Size Explodes

Tyler Durden's picture

Presented with little comment - aside to note the explosion in average trade size today as AAPL plunges back below its 100DMA - BTFD or small doors, large crowds?


AAPL is testing the recent lows, is the most below its 100DMA in 3 months, and as the lowe pane shows, is seeing very large average trade size today (note: this is not volume)...


Are pros selling - after the big buy in March at around $600?

Bullish Gartley pattern.  Buy AAPL at $608.

how's that pattern, or any other for that matter, hold under Bernank?

I've just removed all pretenses of the market any more and no longer use any patterns except textile and floral arrangement for the marketplace.  It has as much relevance as the older financial models on market reads as anything nowadays.


Seriously LNKD has a PE of 1000 on a really shitty facebook clone with resumes.  Company isn't worth spit in a cup.

It looks like your wish has been partially granted.

Also the scariest two charts so far today:

In the 1987 dump gold hit a 4 year high.

If this were a real selloff, the same would be happening.

My thesis remains bullish.

Hfs selling their AAPL and GLD for the GOOG margin calls.

Not quite yet.  We still have Einstein (singularity) to go.

Apple is down 1.5% and you're acting like it's 1929.

That's because we live in the age of nothing falling.

Right - why should it be down at all? At all?!

It is a house of cards, using a slick new deck, on a card table with a jiggly leg, on a brick patio, placed by a Parkinson's patient with Tourette's syndrome, after a 16-oz mochalatte, during a hippo stampede, in a tornado.

Next Tuesday the "secret" iPad mini comes out, as well as a new MacBook Air and some other crap. The muppets will probably be lining up around the block again for iCrap and Shares.

I don't think so  I think the "cool" is gone.  Its like a kid whose gotten a really cool toy, but then another version of the toy comes out and does new cool stuff, but the new cool stff is not as cool as it was when it first came out.

Add to that the "Emperor Has No Clothes" ads that Samsung has been running that change the image of those people waiting on line from super-hip gotta have it techno geeks  to a 2012 equivalent of "i-Krishnas" (without the robes or the tamborines, but with the same mind-set (only at the Apple Store instead of JFK)), and I think you're looking at a long-term down slide.

 Just don't give the i-Krishas money.  I hear they just turn it over to a cult.

I got a cool new toy in the mail today, a Valcambi palladium combibar. It doesn't really do much besides make me feel cool for getting my foot further out the door of this global ponzi scheme, but there's no amount of iCrap that could give me the same feeling.

The doors are always small, and this large crowd is already jumpy and exhibiting strong herd mentalities. It's not going to be pretty when they inevitably start exiting en masse.

Not actually LOL, but chuckling. Grazie.

If crApple has you scared, make sure not to look over at Gee E and Microsloth.

Don't look now, but the futures are tanking.  It wouldn't surprise me a bit if those sick fucks on Wall Street try to equal the 1987 point drop.

Sigh....401K brain says its time to plow back into the only trade more crowded than AAPL. Cash.

Several years ago there was a study done to see exactly how some people died and others survived planes crashes where the plane "landed" more or less intact, but then caught fire.

It was found that those who died tended to line up in the aisles and wait to exit the plane. They often died waiting. Those who survived tended to climb over, around and through obstacles (meaning seats and more to the point other people) to exit the plane.

Small doors, large crowds.

Ever since I saw a picture from WTC in the stairwell, the line of calm office workers waiting in single file, unsuspecting, doing as they were told, on that downward spiral, I've practiced descending the stairwell three or four steps at a time.  See you guys later.

Although the next time, I can only imagine how ill prep'd I will be.

"Although the next time, I can only imagine how ill prep'd I will be."

We victimize ourselves long before others get the chance. In fact our self victimization enables others to take advantage.

I sold life insurance for many years and I found that those who do not wish to talk about death, particularly their own, are least prepared for the grim reaper and ripe for those who wish to exploit their glaring blind spot.

We are only as sick as our deepest darkest secrets.

Remember the tragic fire at the Great White performance at a Rhode Island club several years back.

Just horrible....flames to the ceiling as the music was still jammin',  instantly the front door was clogged.

I've heard it referred to the "Station Night Club effect".

If the Fed controlled NASCAR, they would be peddle cars.

Looks like NASCAR to me, particularly the pile ups in the turns.

...they would all drive a green Infinity.

...while staring at the rearview mirror, but never looking out the windows, with the brakes and accelerators for all the cars controlled by just one guy with a PhD up in a little booth at the top of the grandstands peering through broken binoculars.

Trick or treat bitches.
