Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) May Retest $100

There is some hype around the next iPhone release, and there is no indication the phone will bomb but, as much as the Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) fan boys talk it up, there is nothing new in the latest device.

In fact there is not much new at Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) in general, a cheaper version of Apple TV, maybe another iWatch that no one cares about, so while we have this anticipation rally, the fundamentals still have $100 as a retest mark.

APPLE INC closed down -0.610 at 112.680. Volume was 96% below average (consolidating) and Bollinger Bands were 64% wider than normal.

HEFFX Candlestick Traders Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL)

A white body occurred (because prices closed higher than they opened).

During the past 10 bars, there have been 6 white candles and 4 black candles for a net of 2 white candles. During the past 50 bars, there have been 24 white candles and 25 black candles for a net of 1 black candles.

A spinning top occurred (a spinning top is a candle with a small real body). Spinning tops identify a session in which there is little price action (as defined by the difference between the open and the close). During a rally or near new highs, a spinning top can be a sign that prices are losing momentum and the bulls may be in trouble.

Three white candles occurred in the last three days. Although these candles were not big enough to create three white soldiers, the steady upward pattern is bullish.
