    Be careful. Do not trust the complacency of this market on Apple. They will take Apple down just like the other's.... Don't lose your hard earned money... While Apple is still above support, it has major profit risk with the new tax inversion rules.

    lol It only solves the problem for so long....

    In the 2008 market turn up, I took 15K and made it over $200k in a month..... I called the turn up... Now I am calling the turn down, which I called it on Friday when the dow was 16,700. It can reverse course and the market is fluid... No good news is going to save this market... Downtrend started, and will need a major catalyst to reverse course....

    ANd for most, you are right BA's and MBA's are a waste of time... My son wants to be a Construction Worker... I am happy with that if he does it.

    I am advising that major trend lines have been breached with major broken support for leaders in the market. Semi-Conductors & Transports... The market usually follows the leaders... Which since Friday, it has... Now many sectors have broke trend and broke support since Friday. No one is 100% and yes, the fed can come in tomorrow and end the pain... but they will not this time. This is the end of Big O's second year of his second term... 2nd terms notoriously have tax implications, ie: Corporate tax inversion... Add 1.Crimea/Russia, 2.ISIS, 3.Ebola, 4.Midterm Elections, 5.Broken Trend, 6.Broken Support, 7.Rising Fed Funds Rate = Disaster Market

    Don't forget, International markets also play a role in things... The trend has reversed course... The market it toast...

    lol This is true... but do all the pumpers and dumpers leave their actual credentials?
    When you try to convince people to look at things differently... do you just say, it is so? Or do you need to write your credentials? I gave credentials & supporting fact... Ignore at your own peril.
    You don't know most of these people online from a hole in the wall. All you know is track records... I have made some great calls, I have made some not so great calls... I am advising that major trend lines have been breached with major broken support for leaders in the market. Semi-Conductors & Transports... The market usually follows the leaders...

    Don't forget, International markets also play a role in things... The trend has reversed course... The market it toast... Netflix just doesn't drop 107 points or 24% in a market still in an uptrend after lackluster earnings.... They are beating it with an ugly stick. Walmart guided lower... Wait till they all start Covering their #$%$.

    Apple and other large companies may be affected by the new tax inversion rules and potential rules in the future is causing uncertainty.

  • Market started a downtrend on 9/22/14...
    JP Morgan is not immune... GET OUT Seriously... Buy puts... do something.. the market is toast!

    As I had said in prior posts, the market was looking toppy. We continue to have a lot of uncertainty as we move ahead. Media is hyping up ISIS & Ebola. Ebola may affect travel a little bit. The $index has increased making dollars more expensive, driving down oil prices which means oil stocks will decline. A major leader, Semi-Conductor's took a big hit today, driving it well below support. Transports- just below support. We may rebound a bit. More likely to be sideways & down till we enter the Christmas season, where we could bounce, but may not due to the Fed potentially raising rates soon.less
    Market was at 16,700

    let's also not forget the Midterm elections which will likely change the makeup of the Senate & House....causing additional short term uncertainty.

    Horrible day for the market.Semi Conductors & Transports lead the market. I first mentioned the breakdowns Friday afternoon. .. Market will not be breaking any highs anymore... Who know's how far this elevator goes down... probably not a good time to take new positions. Never try to catch a falling knife... Remember 2008... less

    They are trying to manage the stock price, keep it above trend & support.... Apple has made announcements at major inflection points in the past.... so yes, done on purpose... but no, not for the reason mentioned.

  • wek1998 wek1998 Oct 15, 2014 2:31 PM Flag

    Sorry Charlie... Transports & Semi-Conductors broke major trend lubes and support. While, we are in a long term bull market... This will not be corrected so quick... We may see a Santa Claus rally... but do you want to risk another 1,000 dow points waiting??? If you want to stay long, I'd be buying puts...
