update, sorry I really need to begin updating you guys real time or else this is just worthless, but I ended up covering at like 429 and then I bought until 439 and did some petty successful trades and currently i am short at 449 and will cover oince I get a chance which should be soon, aapl doesn't have the juice it seems to take this bounce any further.

as you can see, aapl gapped up and created what would be resistance for aapl at 460 on a volume of 34 million. Aapl touched the resistance with its bounce because of the catalyst (samsung's s4) and still only reached a volume of 20 million and then immediately retracted and then today it attempted to touch the resistance but on 13.6 million so obviously aapl doesn't have the juice to let it through.

 

So currently im short at 449.7 and plan to exit at about at most 437/40. Should be a good trade unless some stupid catalyst comes along.

here this pic shows more proof of the lack of volume for aapl's upside

Aapl rose to the andrewchannel's resistance on 800k and then dropped immediately on 1.5 million and subsequently 1.1 million.

 

so I see aapl dropping to its support at 437

quick update, i'm still holding my short in aapl and fortunately I had the balls to hold out this bounce and see through it. Aapl retested its support at 450 at about 12 million volume which seems like it will be enough volume to break through until support at 437-40 which is where I plan to cover unless it breaks through on over 19 million volume.

I'm thinking the next target might be 448.

 

most likely not, reason being is that there are more sellers than buyers, aapl couldn't sustain its bounces and has no reason too. Currently odds are that aapl will go south.

Current aapl suppport is at 385. Aapl hit that support with 100 million volume on weekly and then 21.7 million volume on the daily. This was enough volume to break through so expect for aapl to break through 385. Also more bearish analysis shows that the downtrend from the 700 high was reached but immediately fell back, here lemme show a pic.

last friday I ended up shorting aapl at 412 with a stop at 415.5 and a limit at 408 mainly because it was 60/40 chance that my limit order would have been hit but instead I got stopped out and lost a small amount. Didn't worry much as it was a good opportunity because the resistance was so close so I just put a stop over the resistance and didn't risk much.

I plan on shorting aapl tomorrow because it broke through the resistance on the 15 min chart on 800k volume which is clearly not enough, when that same resistance had been tested with 4 million volume and 3 mill volume and would not budge.

    • Hello! I'm afraid there is no such thing, personally I have been trading live for 15+ years now, lost a bunch and won a bunch, and I can say that I'm still learning, and I probably will never stop learning because the markets are so incredibly complex, if you ever meet someone saying he knows it all about trading, he is most definitely lying. but you are in luck. you don't have to know it all to be consistently profitable in the market, you just need to find that specific thing, what ever it will be, and that is the hard and time consuming part. Trading got to be the most complex and hardest profession you could ever learn, I believe there are no shortcuts, the professional traders, banks, hedge funds etc you are trying to extract money from, and "consistently" are people making millions of dollars in a year, I'm sorry but I don't know of any method or course where you can learn to beat those traders. seriously this question is ridiculous when you think about it, ( no offense) I probably asked the same question in a forum somewhere my self when I was starting out, somehow we don't ask our selves these things, it is like the greed are blinding us, if you want to be a trader with the ability to win consistently from the market, there is only hard study that matters, and I don't mean following something somebody else cocked up. that will only brainwash you with probably a messed up base knowledge, and this is bad because as you probably know it's hard to teach an old dog, that is because the unlearning is so hard, avoid other traders ideas, don't even read about it. it will affect your brain subconsciously to mess with your decisions in the future, things you read will probably will be 99% garbage anyway. except this post seriously ha ha , what I mean to say is, do your own thing, bring forth your own ideas, use your brain, test, trade, back it up with statistic and forward testing, this way you will eventually create your own trading strategy that suite you, and it will be something you can trade with confidence, the most hardest thing is to trade some others strategy because you don't have the confidence to trade it, you don't know why it supposedly will work or how, and you have no data to back it up, this will bring you a certain amount of doubt, and then your emotions will kick in and mess things up. on the other hand, if you trade your own stuff, you got the confidence because you know why things will work and you have the data to back it up. my tip is to begin with studying the behaviour of price it self, it is the only indicator you will ever need, price is reflecting all the traders emotions collectively, keep it as simple as you can, the more things and rules you add, the harder it will be to trade, if I would show you my strategy you would not believe me, it's that simple, (not going to though) and then you have your own emotions to deal with, that is a completely different subject but it goes hand in hand with trading. so not only do you need to master trading, you must master your own psychology as well. cheers

And it could be ‘normal’ except for one big issue - it leaves permanent damage on the child’s psyche... just sayin’
