proven trading strategy to keep us focused but the key is that you must buy when others are selling and then sell when everyone is buying. Apple shares really have helped in holding the overall stock market up in the past but recently it has been a big drag on the broad market. Taking a look at the chart below you can see my analysis and thoughts of this giant. The red horizontal line shows the key level where high volume traded in the past. For the market to reset (flush out investors/traders) it must shake as many longs out before it can start rising again. By the price breaking below $600, most of the stops were placed down around this level. The volume spike of 40 million shares clearly shows it triggered stops once that $600 level was broken. The market makers run the stops shaking the masses out of the position. Once they do that, they let market rally again. The more people who get stopped out, the more power the next rally will have because they jump back in later chasing prices higher.
