THE APPLE BEAR MARKET OPTIMIZED MOVING AVERAGE UPDATE FEBRUARY 19, 2013

February 17th, 2013

THE APPLE BEAR MARKET OPTIMIZED MOVING AVERAGE UPDATE FEBRUARY 19, 2013: I have devised a new indicator for Apple which I call the “Apple Bear Market Optimized Moving Average“. It is a 50-day exponential moving average of the price of Apple. It currently has 3 points that served as the top of small rallies since early October 2012. This will help those who want to buy the stock low but want to get out before it turns down again. As of today, the moving average is at 498 and dropping rapidly.

With today’s AAPL price of 460, the spread between the Optimal Moving Average and current price is 38 points. Until the price of AAPL breaks convincingly above the Optimal Moving Average with increased volume, expect the bear market in AAPL to continue….much to the chagrin of those who purchased the stock during the height of its popularity last year.

Until the weaker hands give up on the stock, the bear market in AAPL should continue. The first clue would be a clear oversold buy signal in the “Money Flow Indicator” which has called each of the last three rally in AAPL.

Key Apple indicators show the following:

  • Relative Strength Indicator: “42” reading & is more than a week from a buy signal
  • Ultimate Indicator: “42” reading and is also more than a week away from a buy signal
  • Money Flow Indicator: “55” reading which is far from being a buy signal under 20

Until the “Apple Bear Market Optimized Moving Average” is broken to the upside, the trend is down for this popular stock. And until the Money Flow Indicator gets near 20, it still hasn’t gone enough to an extreme in this most accurate forecasting timer for buying Apple.

Special Note: It looks like a retest of the lows is about to happen. I would look to accumulate AAPL on this retest as it has a good chance of being successful. I would expect a negative “cover story” to cause the weak hands to capitulate on this retest. It may pay to be a day early on your buying of these pilot positions. AAPL has a habit of making huge jumps to the upside when bottoms are reached. Being a day or two late may cost you 30-50 points!
