On Tuesday, AAPL made an early buffalo run towards 100 and then leveled out back to 99. On Wednesday, AAPL peaked early on and slipped below 99 by the end of the day. On Thursday, AAPL bobbed above the 99 line as 100 seemed alluring. On OPEX Friday, the AAPL arrow arced down and flew in a fairly narrow range, ultimately landing down 0.82% on moderate volume. AAPL opened at 98.51 to high volume and then took a dip to set the low of the day of 98.48 at 10:04am on moderately high volume. Later in the morning, AAPL pushed upwards to recover 99 and then went on to set an intra-day high of 99.35 at 12:54pm on moderately light volume. After setting the high, AAPL gravitated towards 99 and closed intra-day down 82 cents at 98.83 and gained 12 cents to end up at 98.95 in after-hours.
This morning in pre-market, AAPL opened lower in conjunction with Futures, briefly dipped to the mid-97 area at 7:15am and then quickly recovered back above 98. AAPL is currently down 63 cents at 98.20 as we approach the open.
