Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) Is there more to come?
It wasn’t long ago that Amazon and Apple share prices seemed to defy gravity, and were pulling the rest of the stock market up with them. But what goes up tends also to come down, and the biggest technology companies plunged as jittery investors cashed out today (Oct. 10), sending the tech sector to its worst day since 2011, according to the Wall Street Journal.
Tech stocks in the Standard & Poor’s 500 index tumbled 4.85%, and pulled the entire market down with them. The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 831 points, which sounds scary, but since the Dow was soaring above 26,000, it was only a 3% drop and just the 80th biggest one-day fall in history, according to the Journal.
While it’s way too early to say the US economy is moving toward a long-overdue recession, tech stocks were in line for a correction after their gains this summer.
First Apple, then Amazon, reached $1 trillion market capitalizations in recent months, fueled by robust earnings and optimism about consumer buying power. But investors are beginning to doubt the shares will climb in perpetuity, as rising interest rates and nervousness about trade wars are signaling its time to move into more stable investments.
Overall, the bias in prices is: Sideways.
The projected upper bound is: 226.99.
The projected lower bound is: 206.77.
The projected closing price is: 216.88.
A big black candle occurred. This is bearish, as prices closed significantly lower than they opened. If the candle appears when prices are “high,” it may be the first sign of a top. If it occurs when prices are confronting an overhead resistance area (e.g., a moving average, trendline, or price resistance level), the long black candle adds credibility to the resistance. Similarly, if the candle appears as prices break below a support area, the long black candle confirms the failure of the support area.
During the past 10 bars, there have been 6 white candles and 4 black candles for a net of 2 white candles. During the past 50 bars, there have been 29 white candles and 21 black candles for a net of 8 white candles.
