NASDAQ Futures are up 9 with +12 Fair Value, Dow Futures are up 17 after AAPL earnings arrived yesterday and we approach the open. Asian markets were mostly down, with China leading with biggest decline of 1.72%, followed by Hong Kong with a 0.8% drop. On the contrary, Japan was up 0.67%. European markets are higher today with UK, Germany and France all up nearly 0.5%. Oil is up nearly 1% while natural gas is down nearly 1.5%. Gold is up around 0.75%. Apple (AAPL) pulled through and an impressed at earnings, seemingly escaping the China crunch like a Houdini, shares popped as high as 118 yesterday before settling near where they closed in the intra-day session headed into earnings. AAPL is currently up 2% in pre-market. On the other hand, Twitter (TWTR) was not as fortunate and is currently down 11%, primarily on a disappointing forecast. Lots more earnings headed our way this afternoon including GoPro (GPRO) and SunPower (SPWR). There's a FOMC announcement at 2pm.
A relatively nervous AAPL started out well yesterday, reaching a peak of 116.53 early on at 10:44am on high volume. The rest of the morning AAPL seemed to lose its confidence and by mid-lunch AAPL broke below 115 on relatively heavy volume before bouncing back above 115. The afternoon continued to be rough on AAPL and the dip accelerated by 3:40pm breaking 114 to hit 113.99 on huge volume. AAPL bounced slightly and closed the intra-day session at 114.55. In after-hours, as earnings arrived AAPL nearly instantly rallied up above 116, and by 4:40pm AAPL peaked in the low 118s on monster volume before swinging back down to the upper 113s, surprisingly to a loss before bouncing back to end the after-hours ride at 115.25.
This morning in pre-market, AAPL opened up higher at 116.1 on high volume and picked up steam reaching 117.25 by 7:16am on heavy volume before quickly dipping back down below 116 to 115.72 by 7:40am on moderate volume. AAPL has since recovered and is heading in the 117 direction. AAPL is currently up 2.16 at 116.71.
Classic max-pain is 115.
