Technical Analysis


The Bloomberg agency, citing its sources, reported a possible disruption in the production of Apple products. Factory employees may be prohibited from entering production due to the scene. Also in the spotlight will be the publication of the company’s quarterly report. The document will be released after the end of trading in the United States.

Assuming the fact that the company’s shares reached their maximum, according to Fibonacci retracement quotes may drop to 294, 280 or even 254 over the next several weeks.


Please note that the asset almost reached an important resistance level at 9.20. Near this mark, we expect the activation of sellers.


Perhaps in the current situation, gold is underestimated, because stock indices continue to decline actively. We believe that the bulls will still prove themselves.
