Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) could ride a wave of optimism heading into that summit
After months of negotiation, the U.S. is reportedly close to entering a trade agreement with China, a deal that could be sealed at a summit between President Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping at the end of the month.
Tech stocks caught in the trade crosshairs, such as Apple, could ride a wave of optimism heading into that summit, said Sarah Potter, author of “How You Can Trade Like a Pro.”
“Apple has just been sitting here and waiting for an opportunity to get even higher than where it has been lately,” Potter said on CNBC’s “Trading Nation ” on Tuesday. “As an options trader, I think this is a really great opportunity to start looking for trades in a stock like this, as we are seeing it move sideways.”

A spinning top occurred (a spinning top is a candle with a small real body).

During a rally or near new highs, a spinning top can be a sign that prices are losing momentum and the bulls may be in trouble.
Momentum is a general term used to describe the speed at which prices move over a given time period. Generally, changes in momentum tend to lead to changes in prices. This expert shows the current values of four popular momentum indicators.
