Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) iPhone 9 might launch as soon as this week

Apple just unveiled a few new products, including the iPad Pro and new MacBook Air, but the first quarter of 2020 should also have brought us an exciting new iPhone.

That was before the novel coronavirus ended normal life in the US and almost everywhere else in the world. The COVID-19 pandemic forced Apple to cancel a late-March press event, according to some reports. Apple never announced the press conference in the first place, so it never had to publicly acknowledge the cancelation.

The same reports also said that the iPhone 9 (iPhone SE 2) would be postponed to summer or later, as Apple was evaluating the situation. That wasn’t because of a lack of iPhone 9 stock, but because of the state of the world. The smartphone business also took a serious hit in the first quarter, just like many other businesses that were affected by the coronavirus. But Apple might be getting ready to launch the new iPhone nonetheless.

The following image shows an Urban Armor Gear case for a “New iPhone 4.7-inch, 2020” device, 9to5Mac reports. It’s just one of many iPhone 9 accessories that are supposedly sent to Best Buy and other retailers. The instructions say that retailers should not inventory the new cases until Sunday, April 5th.

Momentum Indicators

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.

Stochastic Oscillator

One method of interpreting the Stochastic Oscillator is looking for overbought areas (above 80) and oversold areas (below 20). The Stochastic Oscillator is 87.0838. This is an overbought reading. However, a signal is not generated until the Oscillator crosses below 80 The last signal was a buy 4 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 46.16. 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 buy 20 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 26. This is not a topping or bottoming area. The last signal was a buy 4 period(s) ago.
