Apple near key support at $168.18 to $166.34

Only a couple of weeks after Apple became the first company to touch a $3 trillion market valuation the technical picture looks less rosy.

Just a couple of weeks after Apple became the first company to touch a $3 trillion market valuation, the technical picture looks less rosy in light of rapidly rising US yields and general risk-off sentiment.

The day Apple made its all-time high - at $183.35 on 4 January - it closed lower and in doing so formed a Dark Cloud Cover on the daily candlestick chart. It has been coming off ever since.

The $168.18 to $167.05 support area, consisting of the mid-December and early January lows, is key for the ensuing trend. A slip and daily chart close below this zone and ideally also below the 55-day simple moving average (SMA) at $166.34, would not only mean that a series of lower highs and lower lows has been made since the beginning of the year (i.e. the definition of a downtrend) but that a double top pattern has also been formed. Both have bearish implications and would indicate that the long-term uptrend is entering a consolidation phase.

It is therefore possible that a slide back towards the September high at $157.03 may be in the pipeline were a fall through support at $166.34 to be witnessed on a daily chart closing basis. The risk of such a drop being seen will remain in play while no bullish reversal takes the share price back up above the last swing high made on the 12 January high at $177.15.

    • In the previous year, #bullrun2024 had been a trending hashtag as most crypto enthusiasts continually drooled over the prospects of witnessing another bull cycle. 2024 is finally here and so far so good has produced only fireworks. BTC has soared to 60k+, the market is green, and there’s a general sense that the bulls are returning. If there’s one thing that pays most in such bullish market, it is the flair to spot early gems and position oneself before a breakout. In that regard, Bitget has been my plug for a few years running. The early listing of $ORDI last year for instance before Binance listing 7 months after, and a surge ultimately is well documented. This year alone, Bitget has continued its wealth creation for users nicely, coins like $PORTAL, $GPT, $GTAI and so on have gone on to print for investors as depicted in the picture below. Web3 rewards not just active participation, but strategic positioning. There’s no gainsaying that the key to securing insane profits in this market is by positioning early and strategically too. Bitget’s eagle-eye for spotting early gem is a flex. Numbers don’t lie.  
    • Portal itself is awesome. Those who haven't got any airdrop, I think it's best time to accumulate for them.. tho, I'm gonna DCA....
    • Nope the hype is worth it. The project is dope itself as well as the team. Already deposited my bag at Bitget... Let's hope for the best 🤞
