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.

      MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 23rd January 2019.



      FX News Today 10-year Treasury yields are down from overnight highs, but still up 0.7 bp at 2.746%, and 10-year JGB yields climbed 0.8 bp to -0.004%. Stock markets remained cautious during the Asian session. The Bank of Japan held policy steady, as expected, while further reducing its outlook for inflation. The resulting weakness in the Yen didn’t help stock markets and Topix and Nikkei dropped -0.60% and -0.14% respectively. The Hang Seng is also down -0.04%, despite mainland China markets initially moving higher as China’s central bank pumped liquidity into the banking system once again. Still, the measures are also a sign that officials are nervous about the slowdown in the economy and CSI 300 and Shanghai Comp are down -0.24% and -0.13%. The bank offered around 258 bln Yuan (USD 38 bln) to banks through its medium term lending tool. Markets continue to question the progress in the US-Sino trade talks, even though White House adviser Lawrence Kudlow said that the trade talks are still on and the story about cancelled preparatory meetings was “not true, there was never any meeting. We are moving toward negotiations.” The negotiations next week will be “very, very important” and “determinative”. Meanwhile, there are the first signs of a possible way out of the US government shutdown. Markets remain easily spooked, but appear to have already priced in a lot of risk last year and US stock futures are moving higher after yesterday’s sell off. Oil prices are trading at USD 53.27 per barrel. Charts of the Day

      Main Macro Events Today Canadian Retail Sales – After Wholesale Sales plummeted yesterday, Canadian Retail Sales are expected to have also declined by 0.4% m/m, with core Retail Sales (ex autos) expected to have declined by 0.6%. World Economic Forum at Davos –The second day of the WEF annual meetings held in Davos and attended by officials from over 90 countries. Comments from central bankers and other influential officials can create significant market volatility. Richmond Manufacturing Index – Expectations – The index is expected to have remained at a sub-zero level, standing at -2 after the -8 in the December release. Support and Resistance Levels

    • USDJPY Eyes The 109.88 Resistance Zone And Beyond USDJPY eyes the 109.88 resistance zone beyond as it looks to resume its upside pressure. On the upside, resistance comes in at 110.00 level. A turn above here will turn attention to the 110.50 level. Further out, we expect a possible move towards the 111.00 level if the earlier resistance is invalidated out. The next resistance resides at the 111.50. Its daily RSI is bullish and pointing higher suggesting further strength. On the downside, support comes in at the 109.50 level where a break will target the 109.00 level. Below that level will turn focus to the 108.50 level and then lower the 108.00 level. On the whole, USDJPY faces further upside pressure on corrective recovery.
