AAPL had trouble yesterday, opening at 109.13 and selling off hard, presumably on "chip supplier order concerns buzz". By 11am AAPL was crushed under 108 on high volume and hit a low of 107.31. Afternoon trading brought some needed recovery with AAPL reaching a peak of 109.62 and closing the intra-day session near the high point. After-hours was relatively uneventful with AAPL trading in a tight range and closing within pennies at 109.65.
This morning in pre-market, AAPL opened higher along with Futures, appearing to recover and reached a momentary peak of 110.45 at 6:39am on low volume before stabilizing around 110.25 on moderate volume for a short time. Suddenly at 8:30am AAPL dropped from green gains to severe losses on no apparent news and mini-crashed as low as 107.82 on extremely high "fomented" volume. Unfortunately, AAPL is currently down 1.53 at 108.05.
Classic max-pain is 110.
