  • AAPL Falls As Buyers Continue To Stay Away From The Market 0 comments
    May 18, 2012 9:42 AM | about stocks: SPY, DIA, IWM, QQQ, FB, AAPL

    Disappointing Philadelphia Fed and jobless claims figures help set a negative tone for the day. Europe continues to dominate the fear index and FB continues to dominate CNBC's content lineup. The true story of the day was at the end of the day with sellers taking it to the market. AAPL was a large part of the NASDAQ decline of 2.1%. The market is now in a real danger zone with the lack of buyers willing to step up could make it very difficult for this market to regain its footing. Big Wave Trading continues to operate under a sell signal and we continue to look for this market to continue lower.

    Sentiment continues to be negative, but the Investors Intelligence survey continues to lack the negative bearish sentiment. AAII survey certainly saw bears jump in terms of percentage and its bull ratio near lows, but the lack of bears responding to the II survey is somewhat concerning if you are bullish. The NASDAQ has corrected roughly 10% from its March highs which should be ushering in a bearish view point. However, we continue to see the neutral camp dominate the II survey. Given our current situation nothing that happens from here on out will not surprise us.

    FB will be an entertaining IPO and will likely be a wild ride given the current market situation. We are oversold and a bounce would not be out of the ordinary for a quick snap rally to occur. Tomorrow's options expiry will certainly provide the morning with fireworks. The oversold nature of this market tomorrow would be as good of a time as any for this market to push higher to work off the current oversold conditions. Cash is king here and we are looking forward to the weekend.

    Get out and enjoy the weekend!

    Disclosure: I have no positions in any stocks mentioned, and no plans to initiate any positions within the next 72 hours.
