Disclosure: Although I am now an Apple shareholder (see Why I bought a share of Apple, my first), I am in no position to give trading advice. Don’t blame me if you drain your IRA doing something you read about here.

    Maybe I should but, I know absolutely nothing about crypto. Ergo, because I don’t invest where I’m knowledge deficient, I have done nothing with this faux currency.

    I will continue as before, selling out of the money Calls against my DEC 17 $150 Calls. What I sell will depend on how AAPL trades tomorrow. I’m expecting that AAPL will continue to decline, despite Friday’s brief rally. If that is the case I’m tempted to sell the weekly $152.50 Calls. From a risk management point of view the $155s look better, even if the yield is quite a bit lower.

    Any Elliott Wave technicians care to comment on the price action past present and future projections?

    I’m really surprised that AAPL isn’t trading $10-15 higher after September Quarter results and the new hardware releases. It’s just bizarre.

      It’s par for the course with AAPL. They didn’t really blowout, just continued ongoing outperformance against an uncertain backdrop with the usual “but’s” from analysts marring short-term gains. I’d say Friday’s close was a great win though given the turmoil, company and sector specific headlines and global worries about inflation and the impact on consumer spending.

      There could be a lot of churn ahead, especially with new lockdowns in Europe hitting sentiment, or a dip before a run-up for the usual ever-anticipated by CNBC “Santa Claus Rally.”

      David: Because the market’s valuation of Apple is insane, it’s a set-up for gain for astute long-term investors. No reason to complain, just stay in the lane and you will attain the portfolio balance you’re eager to sustain. It’s a little bit of short-term pain but remember what’s main and pretty darn plain – Apple’s share price will move much higher.

      I agree, AAPL should be trading higher, but AAPL is trading in-line with an 11 year history. What is it about this time frame that makes investors somewhat consistently ignore OCT’s earnings/guidance?
