AAPL had an impressive Monday, ending up 1.68, or 1.41%, in what seemed to be a bounce back correction of sorts from Friday's OPEX. AAPL began the day just under 120 and quickly reclaimed 120 on moderately high volume, followed by 120.5 shortly after. AAPL hovered in the upper 120-area most of the day but made a break above 121 in the last 40 minutes of the day on moderate volume, closing the intra-day session at 121.18. After-hours was relatively quiet after the first hour and AAPL gained 7 cents to 121.25.
This morning in pre-market, AAPL opened up lower and immediately dropped to 120.55 on low volume in conjunction with Futures. After bouncing back into the upper 120-area in early morning, AAPL spiked down to 120.34 at 7:26 on moderately high volume before recovering back to 120.79 less than 40 minutes later. AAPL has been oscillating in the upper 120-area as we approach the open. AAPL is currently down 47 cents at 120.71.
