Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) expected to report strong results
Apple, the world’s most valuable public company, is expected to report strong results thanks to a boost in the “average selling price” metric from pricier phones, not necessarily more iPhones sold.
Sales of the $750 iPhone XR won’t be included in these results, and only 10 days of the more expensive iPhone XS and XS Max sales will be included, per MarketWatch.
Expect CEO Tim Cook to field questions about Apple’s upcoming holiday quarter, its growing services business, and U.S.-China relations, though Apple’s products were spared from the latest round of tariffs.

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.
One method of interpreting the Stochastic Oscillator is looking for overbought areas (above 80) and oversold areas (below 20). The Stochastic Oscillator is 33.8055. This is not an overbought or oversold reading. The last signal was a buy 10 period(s) ago.
Relative Strength Index (RSI)
The RSI shows overbought (above 70) and oversold (below 30) areas. The current value of the RSI is 45.83. This is not a topping or bottoming area. A buy or sell signal is generated when the RSI moves out of an overbought/oversold area. The last signal was a sell 36 period(s) ago.
Commodity Channel Index (CCI)
The CCI shows overbought (above 100) and oversold (below -100) areas. The current value of the CCI is -113.This is an oversold reading. However, a signal isn’t generated until the indicator crosses above -100. The last signal was a buy 5 period(s) ago.
The Moving Average Convergence/Divergence indicator (MACD) gives signals when it crosses its 9 period signal line. The last signal was a sell 14 period(s) ago.
