Today is the “triple witching” expiration date where index options and futures expire along with stock options. Once we get this behind us, institutional managers are free to ramp their favorite stocks into year-end.
One of the stocks that I own call options on into Dec 29th expiry is AAPL …
AAPL – 195 Minute Chart #1
To me it looks like the third wave of a 3-wave price structure is about to officially break the ATR resistance level and “signal” the beginning of the final push into year-end. $180 is my target … the market likes nice round numbers in part because of stock option strike prices.
AAPL – 195 Minute Chart #2
Price Momentum and the Moving Average Spread Indicators look like they are in a good position as well to get long AAPL into year-end.
Bottom Line – All that we need now is for Trump to not fuck up the last push into year-end!!
