  • Apple Round Number Top

    Today, April 10th, AAPL trades to a high of $644.00 even. This is referred to as a "round number top" and often ends up being a price that is not pierced on the upside for many months or years.

    Back in August, 2011 the VIX printed a round number top of 48. In September in attempted to test the top but failed at a high of 46.88. Since that time it collapsed in price to a low of 13.66.

    Along with a round number top, AAPL is in area E on the daily chart, area F in the weekly chart and most importantly in area D on the monthly chart. As you can see from the monthly chart the price has gone "parabolic". Movement of price that has become parabolic usually ends with a retrace of price that can exceed the parabolic move. The charts of the VIX and of Apple in the timeframes discussed are posted below:

  • RDN Radian Group Technical Analysis Daily Weekly With Entry Points

    The weekly chart of RDN has produced a "peak C". Once a security reaches the "C point" it has a very strong probability of moving over it before completing it's pattern. This is especially true in weekly charts where each bar represents one week of price movement. Reviewing the weekly chart, should price move over the "C" point it will move towards the 200 day ema (blue line on chart). The 200 ema will act like a magnet pulling price towards it. The 200 day ema is at the 5.50 price area. Looking past the 200 day ema, there is large resistance in the 6.40 area. Should price move to this area, chances are it will be met by sellers that have been trapped in this security since early 2011.

    Posted below are the daily and weekly charts of Radian. The daily chart shows two possible entry areas to be considered. The weekly chart shows the third possible buy area. Should a trader enter a position at any one of these points they must use a tight stop.
