MICHAEL KRAMER AND THE CLIENTS OF MOTT CAPITAL OWN AAPL
Stocks fell sharply on Friday as equity investors finally realized there is no dovish Fed pivot. The S&P 500 fell by more than 3% and saw plenty of technical damage. The index managed to close below critical levels of support at 4,070, and the major level of support does not re-emerge until the 3950 area, a region I have been looking for since August.
It also appears that the index may have completed a Head And Shoulders pattern, another negative pattern suggesting lower prices are likely ahead. At this point, I am not projecting anything beyond 3,950.

The dollar index also had a strong move higher and appeared to be breaking out of a bull flag, suggesting higher values for the dollar index. Based on a breakout projection, the dollar index could climb to 110.50.
The QQQ ETF also fell by 4.1%, which appears to have broken the neckline of a head and shoulder pattern. It is likely to result in the ETF falling to between $295 to $300.
Apple’s share fell sharply on Friday and more recently has gapped below the lower bound of an uptrend which probably results in the shares working to fill the gap around $156. Additionally, the upward momentum on the RSI has broken as well.
Tesla has a head and shoulder pattern and is close to breaking the neckline. If the neckline is broken, it is likely to result in the shares filling the gap of around $248.
The market finally woke up to how terrible Nvidia’s results and guidance were, with the shares dropping by nearly 9% on Friday. The next level of support for Nvidia comes around $154, but I think the stock should fall much lower, as the shares aren’t cheap despite the massive drop.
AMD fell as well, as it should have, by 6%. Like it or not, the stock is in the same boat as Nvidia, and I do not think they will be immune to Nvidia’s “issues.” Revisiting the trend line seems likely in this case.
Bitcoin fell out of the big bear flag I pointed out a couple of weeks ago, and looks like it is setting up for its next leg down. The hourly chart shows a smaller bear flag that has not broken, leading to another 13% drop to around 18,000. The problem with Bitcoin is that it has no value, and because it has no value, it is impossible to find a level where buyers can say it is fundamentally cheap.
Have a good Sunday.
