    Looks like aapl is holding up well. I assume because of the shareholder meeting and Safari 4. Or a bull trap, short setup? Hardware is pretty mixed ATM.

    I’m a little nervous moving into Existing Home Sales at 8am.

    RIMM is also positive, relatively more than AAPL. Yesterday the 50d SMA was $90.93, which seems to be some form of resistance today.

    “Inventories down over 2%, but because of the slow sales in Jan. monthly supply is up.” Let’s see how this comment is digested in the next few minutes…

    My nervous stomach says, S&P losing 750 spells carnage…

    Looks like AAPL is beginning to catch up with the market.

    Am going to wait for < 90 myself.  Will probably get burned, la!

    Edited: and there we are.  Mmm.  Buy now or wait for my limit order.  You’d think I’d have learnt my lesson by now. 

    Has Bernanke begun speaking?

    S&P picking up some steam, but getting a little resistance 760 ATM. Perhaps the blowhard congressmen are almost done talking. Even CNBC cut them off. Seems like traders might be willing to take things back up again if Ben is as articulate as he was yesterday.

    More luck with limit orders.  Decided to raise the limit to 89.79.  Almost simultaneously AAPL blows through 90.  I’m the worst trader ever.  :dunce:

    And when does Mr Gethner get to flesh out the stress tests?  That’s today as well, no?

    Well… it came down and dipped just below the pivot point for the day. You probably know this, but if you want to buy or sell, knowing the pivots can help you get that entry or exit. Looks like we may make another run at it ATM.

    Came across on the newswire at 10:41: “Apple Raised To Spec Buy From Hold By Canaccord”

    edit: seems to correlate with the sell-off.  rolleyes

    Indeed, my buy got triggered on that dip, heh.

    Am I crazy (not to mention a traitor) for considering MSFT at these prices.  I do think Windows 7 will do comparatively well.

    What is keeping AAPL from being dragged down with the rest of the market?  Is it anticipation of positive news coming out of the shareholder’s meeting?

    I have the feeling the posters here would rather be subjected to more talk about BAC trades than turn this thread into one about trading MSFT.  :wink:  LOL

    Perhaps that, Safari 4, Pete Najarian’s plug from last night? Or, just a set up to short later after the news from the SH’s meeting is out and if the S&P loses 750 and doesn’t bounce back quickly.
