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.

That's a big red candle today....and it surprised me honestly.

First support underneath is the uptrend line (~621 or so) and then a volume shelf at ~615. If AAPL loses 610, I'd be a tad bit surprised but I wouldn't be shocked.

Definitely not the earnings run we are used to seeing in AAPL.

I trade Apple from a longer term swing position, so I am still bullish here as I believe the QQQ's are heading higher, and I believe AAPL will as well into EOY.

I'm very bullish on AAPL myself. I trade intraday + swing. If you are bullish on AAPL you have to be buying here at this major confluence of support.

I have to hold it longer because it's just so damn expensive, so I take smaller position for longer period of time. I think a stock split for AAPL would be a very bullish move, and I would welcome it

I'd love it to split too. I trade this beast with options....makes it a bit cheaper to trade but you have to know how to trade options to do it right.

AAPL's looking good for the last few days.

If AAPL can get back over 655-ish and then over ~673, it will move into a volume pocket (over 673) and I think we'll see new highs

AAPL wasn't happy on Friday as 100 Day MA, the up-trend line from May, long term S/R at 620, the Weekly 20 Week MA @ 627.15 and the Volume shelf at ~617 were all broken. This was a powerful move down.

Next support at ~602 (bottom of the volume shelf)...if no bounce there then the next level of support 590 (Long Term S/R) then 200 Day MA at 581.25 and the Monthly 10 MA at 580.02.

Until I see some digestion at these levels, i'm not looking for any swing longs and wouldn't short AAPL down here with earnings coming up. As always, I will be looking for intraday trades.

Agree and I think we might see 560's as a final attempt to shake out everyone, before resuming higher.
