Perhaps having something to do with the move in Apple (AAPL) is chatter the Nasdaq could be rebalanced to cut the stock's influence. When this occurred in April 2011, Apple sold off (before taking flight again). There's also word Amazon China has pulled the iPad2 from sale due to the Proview trademark suit.

    I'll have the truck backed up to the loading dock, if and when this occurs.

    Maybe this will take the stock back to 315;the price at which the geniuses on CNBC said it would be dead in the water.

    @ $315 I'd sell my sports car and go ALL in!

    Chinese Customs has waved away ProView's ban request.

    I'm drawing Apple's effective trading range between $450 and $525 until further notice. Previously it was about $360 to $420. That's the nature of a stock. Moves from trends to ranges.

    Everyone knows that, but your boundaries are somewhat arbitrary. Previously the market needed to tank to 1075 or Steve Jobs die for the stock to hit 360. 450 is likely too low as many will back up the truck there. But everyone knows it and must back up just a little earlier, and earlier etc. etc.

    I'll bet you a coke that Apple is under 460 at some point this year and another coke that it'll also touch 600.

    Apple makes some kind of significant adjustment a few weeks after earnings quite often, not a suprise and if you weren't expecting it, you should have been...


    Is will likely slide down another 5 to around and regain traction about a month befpre next earnings...and then on to new highs...

    Usually it falls faster than this time and the earnings this time were from another planet. I give it a max. 5% down from here, maybe less.

    It seems to me that this reversal is simply a natural correction in a great stock that has had a great run. However, given the recent reports regarding the big shift up in market share in the smartphone world, and a still relatively cheap forward P/E and low PEG ratio, I have to view this as a great opportunity to be long apple again. Unfortunately for me, I am no multimillionaire, and I'm certainly not arrogant enough to think I can call the exact bottom of this reversal, so I intend to be a buyer of call options tomorrow, as well as on the way down if the correction continues. I just can't see how revenues will slow or earnings will disappoint, and afterall isn't that what drives stocks?

    Given the very heavy volume, I think the dramatic reversal was all machine driven. The RSI was way in overbought territory when the sudden reversal kicked in. The drop fired off stops and some decided to take profits when they saw the down trend. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
