Here's how one trader is shorting Apple 32 Mins Ago | 01:53 Apple is having its worst month since April 2016, and Todd Gordon of TradingAnalysis.com says the charts are hinting at even more downside ahead for the tech giant. "Apple broke down pretty sharply here, and it looks like we want to go back and retest some lower levels," he said Thursday on CNBC's "Trading Nation."

The Federal Reserve took a small step to begin unwinding its crisis-driven asset purchases on Wednesday, but since the move was widely expected, the meeting's real drama hinged on the outlook for future rate hikes. Despite a string of benign inflation readings, Fed policymakers stuck to their guns, indicating a likelihood of four more rate hikes through the end of 2018. The updated outlook reflects a stark contrast with financial-market pricing, which sees just one rate hike (in December) through August 2018, according to the CME Group FedWatch tool. Starting in October, the Fed said it will gradually begin scaling back its $4.5 trillion balance sheet by letting $10 billion in principal run off per month, rather than continuing to reinvest all proceeds of maturing Treasury and mortgage bonds.
