Apple News

Please click here for a chart of Nasdaq 100 ETF (QQQ).

Note the following:

  • The chart shows that the market ran up in the morning.  The market ran up on four factors:
    • Weaker dollar
    • Buying in Europe
    • Good bank earnings
    • Bullish weekend pronouncements by momo gurus
  • The chart shows when Apple (AAPL) news hit.  AAPL will slow down hiring in some teams.  To any astute observer, the news from AAPL should not have been a surprise.  Consumers bought new iPhones and new Macs during the pandemic.  Without compelling features, consumers are less likely to upgrade, especially when they are getting hurt by layoffs and inflation.
  • The chart shows that the market gave up all of its substantial gains and turned negative on AAPL news.
  • The market reaction shows that the momo crowd was caught flat footed.
  • How vulnerable is this market?  You do not need to look beyond the reaction to AAPL news shown on the chart.
  • The reaction to the AAPL news also highlights that a potential bull trap may be developing.
  • The VUD indicator is the most sensitive measure of net supply demand in real-time. The orange represents net supply and the green represents net demand.
  •  The VUD indicator was solid green in the morning but is solid orange in the afternoon.

Home Builder Sentiment

The home builder sentiment has fallen sharply.  NAHB Housing Market Index fell to 55 vs. a consensus of 66.  This is the largest monthly drop in 37 years.  However, a number above 50 still indicates positive home builder sentiment.

Bulls are using this number as a positive argument in that home builder sentiment is still so positive in spite of rising mortgage rates.  Bears are using this number as a negative argument, contending that the number shows there is another shoe yet to drop.
