    it’s run-of-the-mill base-building before the next move.  a breakout or breakdown is coming soon.

    id like to think a breakout is coming soon but i dont know. Would be nice to close green today, its possible were only a buck down

    id like to add that this is a great board. I have been going to the yahoo boards but ive pretty much stopped going there. It seems that everyone there is a pumper or a basher.

    Steve Jobs the tweaker

    I liked this New Yorker magazine article that connects Jobsian characteristics with the Industrial Revolution in England

    Gladwell also used Jobs and the development of the Mac as a subject in his book “Outliers.”

    We can see that.  How to tell which way is more likely?  Any TA indicators that can predict the break out/down?  Well, highest OI (calls) for weekly, Nov is $415, $440 while highest OI (puts) is $400,$400, so option traders are betting that it would break out.

    AAPL broke above intraday channel at $397.35, now it is flirting near the upper channel of the two-day channel.  Need to break above $399.68 for it to have any chance of retesting $410 and then hopefully fill the gap at $415, then even more hopefully retest $426.70.

    Flipping above and below $399.68 for the last one hour, usually close inconclusive and have to wait till tomorrow.  It would then be a gap up or down at the open.

    What was going on with GOOG today?  Google+ for business?  Moto’s meaningless injunction?

    smallest AAPL intraday range in quite awhile, and volume too.  volatility squeeze can only last so long ...

    note the bottom of the BB on the daily is all the way up to 387 now.  if you are waiting for 370, good chance you won’t get it.

    Everyone’s placing their bets…

    It doesn’t serve to get too complacent when a stock is consolidating and the volume is falling as an explosive move can arrive out of nowhere. These are the times when you build your position. You can be certain that’s what the big players are doing, sucking up more shares whenever the 4 hour 200 EMA gets tagged as weak shorts and misguided bears sell shares into their ownership.

    Sponge, they don’t need to drop the stock to 390 to make a profit when they can ramp it $30-$40 bucks from here in the face of all this pessimism, then reverse their positions while all the shorts and weak longs are scrambling, and then drop it $100. Another $5 down from here is small potatoes.

    Seriously, Unique, “the cool kids”? Which decade (or should I say, millenia?) are you living in?
