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.

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.

    • This is simply one part you have defined here. lack of knowledge and awareness is also another part than needs to be consider before starting trading. 
    • The theme over this last trading week has been one of remarkable resilience. After breaking down from key resistance levels, it seemed that a period of consolidation would follow. But, globally, markets instead rallied with conviction to retest their highs. I have been sceptical about the sustainability of the rally this year. But one of the most fundamental axioms of surviving the markets is to trade what you see, not what you believe. And what I am seeing is markets that seem to want to push higher across the board, with individual stocks holding up well even when faced with bearish news. S&P 500 (credit: chart from Sigma by Hydra X) The S&P closed the week strongly at 2,822.48, up 0.5% on high volume, and on the back of its biggest weekly gain since November 2018. US markets seem insistent on forging a path higher despite the overhang of earnings, macro economy news, North Korea, and ongoing China trade talks. I still wait for price to break and close clear of the congestion zone around 2,800 before entering longs, but this looks increasingly like a environment where the only rational positions to take are either to be flat or long. MICROSOFT (credit: chart from Sigma by Hydra X) Gains this week were led by tech, with the sector surging 4.9%, and also becoming the best performing sector of 2019. I find MSFT interesting, having completed a bullish inverse head and shoulders pattern, rallying in a tight rising channel, and strongly testing resistance (and also its all-time highs) on high volume. But a spinning top candlestick in the midst of overhead resistance, and a bearish stochastic crossover which in overbought territory could translate into a pullback, which could provide interesting entries for longs. TESLA (credit: chart from Sigma by Hydra X) A good litmus test for market sentiment is how stocks behave on news. Tesla has held on to $275 support despite its Model Y unveiling event underwhelming analysts; BAML, CFRA Research and Canaccord Genuity all issued cautionary notes. If it gets there, $260 looks to be strong support for a countertrend rally. BOEING (credit: chart from Sigma by Hydra X) Boeing continued to suffer the aftermath of the latest tragedy, ultimately having to suspend its entire fleet of 737 MAX planes when the FAA finally followed the lead of global aviation authorities in grounding the plane. Deliveries of the 737 MAX have also been paused. The beleaguered company faces an indeterminate outcome from investigations, bills from airlines affected by the grounding of the plane, as well as potential suits from the families of victims. On Thursday, the US Air Force joined the party. It launched a blistering attack on Boeing, saying that the company has a ‘severe situation’ after flawed inspections of their KC-46 air refuelling tanker aircraft, and questioning the company’s ‘culture of discipline for safety’. [https://www.cnn.com/2019/03/14/politics/air-force-boeing-refueling-plane/index.html] Despite all this, the stock has proven remarkably well supported at $370, repeatedly rallying from those levels on high volume. FACEBOOK (credit: chart from Sigma by Hydra X) No company has had a worse week than FB, even within the context of its bad year. The week started with a proposal by Senator Elizabeth Warren to break up FB, was followed by a network outage affecting its Facebook, WhatsApp and Instagram services, and then announcements of a widening federal criminal probe into its data sharing practices. Two key executives, Chris Cox and Chris Daniels also announced their departures from the company. A nadir was reached when its Facebook application was used to livestream the hate-driven massacre of 49 people in New Zealand. Technically, the stock has broken below the bottom of its ascending channel, and key overhead resistance in the $170-173 region looks daunting. There is also a huge gap from Feb 2019 waiting to be closed. Yet in spite of the weak technical picture and the deluge of negative news, FB closed just 2.13% down for the week, and ended the trading session on Friday well above the lows of the day, forming a bullish hammer. While I have been waiting for a clear break in one direction or the other for a while, as rising channel met overhead resistance, I choose to stay as interested spectators for now. EUR/USD (credit: chart from Sigma by Hydra X) Finally, last week I noted the technical breakdown of key support levels in the EURUSD, in conjunction with fundamentally bearish news in the form of Draghi’s dovish speech. However, I was keen to stay on the sidelines, given past experience of how crowded trades tend to turn out. EURUSD didn’t disappoint, as it promptly rose in a stop-hunting rally, which would have trapped any short entries in a very uncomfortable position.
    • Learn the concepts of options first and do demo trading, that is the only tips that anybody can give you. Your knowledge ans skills are going to help you for options trading.
    • It was good article for options knowledge but the fact is that many traders actually see it like it is gambling and somehow it also works like gambling. So working with options in real money is more risky.
