Apple Enters Gravtitational Singularity As Hedge Fund Hotel Evacuation Begins

Tyler Durden's picture

AAPL had crawled it way into the green in the pre-open, bumping around yesterday's closing VWAP. In the early minutes of the US day session open, we saw very heavy selling volume in AAPL (and surprisingly S&P 500 futures ramped vertically). This smells a lot like someone getting a tap on the shoulder on their 'hedged' Long AAPL, Short ES position. AAPL bounced off yesterday's lows to get back to VWAP and then the real selling began... At $542 now, AAPL is over $160 off the highs and reverting back to the market cap of the entire European banking system. With 230 hedge funds holding this angel of death... small doors and large crowds do not mix... paging Topeka? Widows, orphans, and value investors first...

 

 

The Hedge Fund Hotel Evacuation...

 

and the reversion to Europe's banking sector...

 

and its not like we haven't seen this before - it is simply investor's anchoring bias is that this kind of move is unthinkable...
