Technical Analysis


Material shortage can put a dent in Apple’s production rates, especially with the ongoing shortage of computer chips. This can give a negative push to the company stock.

We can see Apple showing an abrupt end to the recent uptrend, with the stock slipping 2 points and breaking through the support level of 120. This can be a beginning of a downtrend to reach a previous support level of 116.
