Apple Stock Slump Continues - Tests Key Technical Support

Tyler Durden's picture

Apple share price continues to tumble since it unveiled the iPhone 8 and X, following yesterday's triple whammy of bad news.

Back at it lowest since August 1st's after-hours spike on earnings, AAPL is now testing the key 100-day moving average...


And as goes AAPL, so goes the Nasdaq.. again

Time for The SNB to buy some more...

If Janet Yellen has your back then why is she raising rates and tapering QE?

"If Janet Yellen has your back then why is she raising rates and tapering QE?"


When the FED stopped QE, Japan stepped in and the EU has their own QE, as well. Yellen is using surrogates.

In August, 2014, when the market was dumping, Bullard said QE should not end, in order to goose the market. When QE ended, Japan immediately annouced it was going to QE. Bullard then said U.S. QE should end and his August remarks were misinterpreted.

The other theory is that there have already been so many trillions printed that cant be accounted for that this money can be oozed into the market at any sign off weakness to keep the ponzi going.  Once you realize it was never about mainstreet only about wallstreet it makes sence.

Well I say give it a few weeks. All the permabulls are going to be reacquainted with a bear.

""They"" know that that cant happen, and will preclude the end game as long as possible.....  Not saying it wont end, but I dont think it will be anytime soon.


Next leg up will be on healthcare and insurance stocks with the repukes fail to do anything about Obozo care.

There will always be an aggregate QE mechanism... Until there isn't.

Because the new Iphone x sucks balls, I just switched to the Samsung Note 8...bad ass phone. And Gear 3 frontier watch..also bad ass.


Thumbs down cunt ...fuck off.

Apple consistantly changes software to make your phone obsolete.  Planned obsolescence is fraud.

Yup.  had the 4S forever and then the damn thing froze, and to reinstall the OS (which I never updated).  The new system fucked my phone.

Probably should be looking at what will likely be the real underlying cause of the trajectory towards $9/share again, not Foxconn delays...

- Disposable income drought

- Smart phone maturity saturation

hey but a least Apple has a shiny new headquarters that looks like an anus...

Stupid article has it ass backwards. Apple recently hit all time high. Correction is to be expected.

Where do we get these junior high technicians? The hedge used to be pro level.

Every product announcement is met with critics, and perma bears say tomorrow is the crash. Investors who listened to them are very sorry as apple faithful buy anything they sell. Apple is so confident they troll their users with a $1000 dollar phone. New and improved with more molecules.

iPhone 7 is fine... they could of cut staff and just sold that one for the next 5 years

TheSilentMajority's picture

IP6 is actually fine.

Nothing has significantly changed for the better since the ip6, but some things have actually gotten worse since then.

dark pools of soros's picture

true, losing the headphone jack was asinine... tmobile was basically giving the 7 away so i switched up from a 5 last year

mkkby's picture

You have to buy a new one every 2 years because the battery dies and cannot be replaced.

This one is even more stupid because LTE 5 will be out in a few months and no existing phones have a modem for that. Idiocracy will buy a $1000 phone just to throw it away next year.

"You have to buy a new one every 2 years because the battery dies and cannot be replaced"

Well, I've replaced the batteries on an iphone 5c and 6 easily.  On the 6 there are two screws on the bottom, remove those and the battery slides out.  Replace, secured and you got a new battery, or go to a place like Cellphone CPR (or whatever iphone repair place you go to) and have them do the replacement for about 45 bucks or so.

Don't know about the 7 or 8 cause I've never used or had them.

Seeing as how the CEO literally takes it up the ass on a regular basis, this little correction won't hurt him one bit.

I don't know why people won't pony-up for a $1000 iPhone. After all, the cost is less than 1 month's health insurance premium. What will it take for me to get you into this new iPhone, today?

Wait until those losers at Bain and KKR and the Vampire Squid gang bail on ToysRus and steal the Toshiba chip plant.

The sheep are now wise to the annual Apple “upgrade” con and wont be upgrading until their phone actually dies or something significant improves with the phones.

Not so fast- there ARE ALWAYS sheep to fleece- always.

1. Plunge Protection Team to the Rescue!!!

2. New legislation involving an individual mandate to buy a mobile phone from one of the three primary manufacturers.

3. New FCC regulations making any phones pre-2017 unable to be used on the existing networks.


That ought to just about take care of it.

Apple needs a new idea.  Tim Cook never had the first one.

He is too busy telling his customers how to think.

Apple needs a new CEO.  One who is more interested in running the business instead of his mouth.

How many Apple products languish, hidden away in some closet after annoucing that model would no longer receive upgrades. Millions? Easily. Many are still usable for their purpose but the fear and doubt created makes their anxious owners relent and fork over their money for the 'new'. But fewer with each iteration. The returns are diminishing. Hence a price increase to squeeze the golden goose a little longer. Not a good long term strategy. The Age of Cool requires ever new acolytes and the cost of being one have made membership increasingly prohibitive.
