Good morning, traders. While waiting for the S&P 500 Index (SPX) to work down to 1250.00, we are busy reviewing weekly charts and making a list of stocks that we would like to be long of when the market turns back higher.
Let's review the chart of Apple, Inc. (AAPL) which is at the top of our list of long play candidates.
A green oval encompasses prior consolidation that took place just under the 320.00 level and the green arrow points to the most recent low after the 320.00 level changed from resistance to support. When the stock touches 320.00, we plan to hit it with a long entry.
The current daily average true range of AAPL is 5.59. Based on this, from yesterday's close, the stock could reach 320.00 in as little as three days.
Under The Hood When we say "under the hood" we mean market internals, ie: what was really happening behind the scenes. ShadowTraders who listen to our daily broadcast every day live on the thinkorswim platform know that all closing figures on the major averages should only be interpreted in the context of market internals. Look for convergences and divergences in the breadth, a/d line, and trin figures below to either confirm or cast doubt on what all those talking heads on TV are telling you.

ShadowTrader Sector Trend Scores The ShadowTrader Sector Trend Score matrix is a proprietary method of assigning values to twenty five sectors that are a representative cross-section of the market as a whole. The heat map in the trend score column defines the current strength or weakness of that sector using a proprietary weighting formula. Sectors bolded in green and red are the two sectors that experienced the largest absolute gain and loss in trend score over the prior day. We strongly urge subscribers to read the full explanation of the meaning and calculation of the trend scores in the Swing Trader User's Guide.
Broad market breadth continued it's ugly ways yesterday. 20 of the 25 ShadowTrader Sector Trend Scores moved lower. We expect more of the same in forthcoming days until the broad market finds price support.
