14:06 EDTAAPLApple technical comments ahead of earnings, potential bearish pattern
There is a potential bearish head and shoulders top, which is most easily seen on a 3-year chart. The neckline for the pattern is at the $100 area on a closing basis, and in recent sessions the pattern has been both active and inactive as price crossed that line. If the news is bearish, a breakdown below $100 would see the pattern become active. Downside potential for the pattern would be to the $70 to $66 area. If the news is a bullish surprise, and sentiment has turned negative on the name which could add to short-cover demand, the counter-reaction up may be as large as pattern suggests is possible on the downside. It could mean in time a retaking of the $130 area or higher. The life high for the shares is at $134.54.
