On Tuesday AAPL struggled to get back up the 108 hill, eventually sliding below 107. Despite an early morning dip, AAPL sprang back to 108 on Wednesday to end above 107. AAPL had a particularly cloudy Thursday, losing 107 and struggling to hold 106. AAPL opened at 105.01 on Friday to moderate volume and made a quick dash back up to 106 and set an intra-day high of 106.48 shortly after at 10am on relatively high volume. Afterwards, AAPL sold off rapidly on moderate volume and broke 105 in just over an hour. Despite a small bounce to the lower-105 area, AAPL continued to drop to a low of 104.62 on lower volume before a mild volume turnaround kicked in at 1:30pm that lasted the rest of the afternoon and took AAPL back to the mid-105 area.
