The stockis at the upper part of a horizontal trend and normally this may pose a good selling opportunity but a break-up through the top trend line at $135.31 will give a strong buy signal and a trend shift could be expected.Given the current horizontal trend, you can expect Apple stock with a 90% probability to be traded between $123.63 and $135.92 at the end of this 3-month period. A break of a horizontal trend is often followed by a large increase in the volume, and stocks seldom manage to go directly from the bottom of a trend up to the top. Stocks turning up in the middle of a horizontal trend are therefore considered to be potential runners.
Mostly positive signals in the chart today. The Apple stock holds buy signals from both short and long-term moving averages giving a positive forecast for the stock. Also, there is a general buy signal from the relation between the two signals where the short-term average is above the long-term average. On corrections down, there will be some support from the lines at $133.11 and $127.80. A breakdown below any of these levels will issue sell signals. A buy signal was issued from a pivot bottom point on Wednesday, May 12, 2021, and so far it has risen 9.78%. Further rise is indicated until a new top pivot has been found. Furthermore, there is a buy signal from the 3 months Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD). Volume fell during the last trading day despite gaining prices. This causes a divergence between volume and price and it may be an early warning. The stock should be watched closely.
Apple finds support from accumulated volume at $133.48 and this level may hold a buying opportunity as an upwards reaction can be expected when the support is being tested.
