Welcome to futures io.

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.


You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

An 18 years old American born girl of Iranian parents (USA citizens) was denied an iPad at an Apple store in Texas because of sanctions on Iran. State Department stated there are no legal basis for this Apple's action.

Interesting that the girl spoke in Farsi to a relative when at the cashier. The cashier asked about the language spoken, and she said it was Farsi. The cashier then said sorry we can not sell you Apple products because of our directive on countries under USA sanctions.

Another country under USA sanctions is Cuba. Can you imagine no Spanish speaking persons could buy an iPad for speaking Spanish.

So far, Apple has not replied to complaints.

Range in wedge

How shall we play this?

I'll start...

We're in the middle of a short-term range amid a pullback in a long-term up-trend. Earnings come out tomorrow, so buying options is going to be expensive. There will probably be resistance around 643 ($40 from here). I do think the quarter will be good, but there weren't a lot of major product launches during the quarter to provide a positive upside catalyst (just Retina-display MacBook Pros), but production throughput is improving and market penetration continues to increase. I'm inclined to be a seller of premium here ahead of the news as I don't think we'll get a big definitive move after earnings. However, the July monthlies expire this Friday so there might be much theta premium left to sell here unless we go out to August or later. Front-month IV is 54%, August is 37% so I might look at doing a calendar spread to take advantage of this skew. The Jul/Aug 625 spread would cost me $5.85, with a break-even at 630.85 by August expiry as long as AAPL stays below 625 after this Friday. That level is still below resistance and people start positioning their holiday/Christmas positions in August/September and AAPL usually runs well into the holidays. Also, they'll be well into the back-to-school season of the year.

Well, I ended up sitting on my hands. While I'm overall bullish, the market sentiment is getting so negative, global growth is slowing, and I was afraid AAPL wouldn't meet the usual rosy expectations, which was correct, so I didn't do anything. I guess I should have short it or bought puts, but that's historically not been a good move so I decided to do nothing. I still think Oct-Dec the stock will run nicely as long as the world isn't melting down. I'm now looking at averaging into a bullish long-term position on current weakness.

Are you smoking crack?

Source: Judge Koh asks Apple's attorneys if they're 'smoking crack' | The Verge


Quoting 
Judge Lucy Koh has been going increasingly terse with both Apple and Samsung as the trial continues, and she just let Apple have it after receiving a 75-page briefing. The document covered 22 potential rebuttal witnesses the company might want to call after Samsung finishes presenting its case. With the jury out of the courtroom, Koh laid into Apple, asking why it would present such a lengthy document "when unless you're smoking crack you know these witnesses aren't going to be called!"

Apple attorney William Lee stepped forward, saying "First, your honor, I'm not smoking crack. I can promise you that." The company's legal team agreed to pare down the document, with attorney Michael Jacobs claiming that the company didn't mean to burden the court and that it truly believed it would be able to run through all of its witnesses in the time it has remaining. Jacobs also pointed out that some of those addressed in the document were Samsung's witnesses, not Apple's.

As the discussion continued, Koh grew even more frustrated, telling the parties that the conversation would come at the expense of their trial time. "I'm billing time because you all are being unreasonable," she said.

Koh's temper flared earlier this week when Apple said it wanted to bring in designer Susan Kare for a round of rebuttal testimony but that due to family matters Kare wouldn't be able to attend until Monday. After a round of discussion, Koh flatly refused, saying that unless Kare could testify this week, she wouldn't be returning to the courtroom at all.

One thing is clear: Judge Koh wants this trial done on schedule, and will not hold back in making sure it happens.
