AAPL had a mountain of a day yesterday, opening at 114 and scraping as high as 114.5 within 20 minutes on relatively high volume before taking a breather on moderate volume 30 minutes later at just under 114. By noontime, AAPL breached 115 and just over 30 minutes AAPL summited above 115.5 on relatively high volume. The afternoon was not quite as kind with AAPL losing a point and selling down to 114.5 by 2pm on moderate volume, attempting to bounce from there but ultimately losing the battle and dropping below 114 where the journey began. AAPL ended the intra-day session at 113.76. Quite a ride. After-hours was uneventful with AAPL eventually losing 7 cents to 113.69.
This morning in pre-market, AAPL opened at 113.83 on low volume and again quickly gravitated towards 114 and hovered there until later in pre-market where some volume has stepped in bringing AAPL up to 114.3 by 8:10am and then bouncing off of 114 again to grasp at 114.5 at 8:56am on high volume. AAPL is currently up 65 cents at 114.41.
Classic max-pain is 112.
