NASDAQ At 12-Year Highs, AAPL +9571% In Same Period

Tyler Durden's picture

While partying like its 1999 is still a way away, the NASDAQ has managed to get back to December 2000 levels as it has only dropped by more than 1% once in the last six weeks #yay Retirement-On!


and of course, we must thank AAPL:


Now over 20% weighted in the NASDAQ-100...


As AAPL is up...9571% since the $7.50 price when the NASDAQ last saw this index level...

NASDAQ At 12-Year Highs

Yes, in nominal terms. Yet adjusting for inflation (reported CPI data) the NASDAQ is -27% from December 2000. Based on todays NASDAQ price of about 3134, that is an adjusted price of 2287. And dont even get me started on the faulty CPI reporting, have you been to the grocery store lately? My i-Pad is looking better and better as a daily nutritional source.

Obama must have his trading console in the WH shorting WTI right now for the sake of his magnificent acceptance speech, as WTI is going down on incredible shortage reported this morning.  Short WTI is the only contrarian trade working today.

Sheeple all in at Dow 14,000. Nasdaq 3,200. God help us.

If you have been trading since REG NMS was initiated and watched HFT blow out all stops on either the long side or short side , then you should know this. The pattern is very obvious for intraday, weekly, and monthly. Here is  the setup all the ZERO HEDGE people are waiting for, so be patient.


The market will blow up here creating a new support and resistance. As fast as this rip goes up it will test the new support. Then it will retrace to scare the shorts thinking it will make higher highs. This is where you get short 1/3 your postition. Don't get heavy that you get shaken out. This is the sucker blow up and the place to be short.  Once the HFT breaks support again it will flush real fast to not allow you to short more. Wait for the bounce or weak short covers and  put the rest of your postion on. This is the big trade you can retire from. 

I would take 30 day options as protection once you put on the full postion. This is how you get paid in the screwed up HFT world. You need to stay small at first and once comfirmed go big and heavy. Do not add to a postion against you or average in. Remember there are no real bids or offers. It's all an illusion that really isn't there. So play for longer term.


Good Luck

This will be my first trade I have made in over 8 months. I will be putting on a short tier 1 position on the next retracement. Once it breaks below the new support I'm backing up the truck. Be patient becuase it's here and the setup is coming.

New support being S&P 500 @ 1425, right?  

brokenclock's picture

I gave up on using exact support/resistance. I leave more wiggle room. Use that range but not exact.  Stay  small until postion is comfirmed. This is a very low risk high reward trade if you have patients.

thanx...will watch for that and VWAP levels.  Why wait until now to make your trade?

brokenclock's picture

I don't like stepping in front of the freight train. Wait for them to blow this up. Then there will be a pull back. On the next leg up to test resistance is where you put your short on. Once the trade breaks below support and confirms, put the rest on.  You know where you out is, so  thats your risk.   You should never be out of the money much on this trade in a tier one postition.  When your trade confirms it is making money. Add to winners for the bigger move.

That is nice but still glad bought silver, not AAPL

I'm holding both!!!  Apples for mo silver bitchz!

I'm sure they will push Apple to a trillion dollar market cap and push the Nasdaq to new all time highs. No bubbles here.

It's truly incredible.  Apple valuation looks ok, but they have the law of large numbers for a premium product staring them in the face.  It's gonna take a lot of printed money to buy 500m iPhones a year at $500 per.  By 2015 every man women child and dog is going to have a smart phone (but the electricity grid may be permanently down).

As for money-losing AMZN, CRM, utterly impossible momentum stocks that could never possibly grow into their valuations.

And healthy / organic foods are just a small niche, but 40x earnings for HAIN, Whole Foods, United Natural on 10% growth at best selling premium products to overstretched consumers is just insane.  And these stocks have tripled or more in the last two years.  All thanks to Ben, what a guy, that's how you save the world.

The shoeshine boys are talking about Apple.

Is it time?!

At the rate it is going - AND! to keep going at this rate...

AAPL will bloody well have to own the fuckin Universe.

The thing that makes this site so great is the same thing that makes it so dangerous. You will never find the kind of macro based reality that ZH brings to the table anywhere else. The hard part is reading it day after day and not being tempted to throw some chips on the table based off the info here. The second you give in and try to trade it you lose your ass.

LoneStarHog's picture

That is because the HFT 'puters don't read ZeroHedge.

slaughterer's picture

I am 99% sure that ZH is scanned by HFTs and FB/CIA alike.  Sorry.  

LoneStarHog's picture

Good gawd! READ and try to COMPREHEND the original post to which I was replying ATTEMPTING some humor. It has NOTHING to do with FB/CIA and alike.

repeat after me.. "there is no inflation"

gjp's picture

Of course it's at a 12-year high.  Europe is saved!  Buy US momo stocks at their ridiculous nosebleed peaks!

Surely the payback for this outrageous repeated behavior is coming soon?  It's gonna be a bitch.

Nurse: Doctor, we are being flooded with hopium overdoses, euphoria is though the roof and many people are baffled with bullshit something feirce.

Dr. : Stay calm. Give them a dose of reality.

Call me skeptical, but I don't think they are going to keep their '12 year highs' into the close today ...

Naked short holocaust.  Exterminate the bears, with extreme prejudice.  The central bank final solution has begun.
