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.

    • Ever feel like you're stuck in crypto traffic? Slow transactions and outrageous fees are the bane of using blockchains like Ethereum at their core (Layer 1). These networks can only handle a limited number of transactions per second, causing major congestion during peak hours. The result? Frustratingly slow processing and expensive fees for users.   But wait, there's hope! Layer 3 rollups are here to revolutionize the game. Imagine them as express lanes built on top of existing bypass roads (Layer 2 solutions). Layer 2 already helps by alleviating some of the traffic on the main highway (Layer 1). Layer 3 rollups take it a step further, adding dedicated express lanes to these bypass roads for super-fast processing. This innovative approach tackles Layer 1's congestion by distributing the workload across multiple layers, ultimately leading to faster, cheaper, and more scalable blockchain applications.   While specific layer 3 implementations are still under development, some projects are paving the way. Immutable X (IMX token) built on StarkNet (a Layer 2 scaling solution) and dYdX (DYDX token), a decentralized exchange on StarkNet, are both exploring layer 3 rollups to achieve even smoother transactions. Keep an eye out for zkLink Nova, a major player in the scalability game. This cutting-edge technology leverages the strengths of existing solutions to deliver groundbreaking performance. Backed by leading crypto institutions with over $23 million invested in the zkLink ecosystem, zkLink Nova is generating serious buzz ahead of its ZKL token listing on Bitget. Get ready for a smoother ride on the crypto highway!
