$AAPL continues to gap down on news that China Mobile is reducing its subsidy for iPhone 5c; a move that may have an impact on the sales.
Currently, on the Ichimoku chart, a bearish cross is seen with a critical support level at $453.84 .
Should the price level close below this or unable to bounce off from this level, given the thin kumo support below, it is likely $AAPL will drop to $392.
$ AAPL rises from the lows of $390 till $500 on news that Ichan has acquired stakes in it.
On the daily Ichimoku chart, it would have point to a great bullish move.
However, with the announcement of the iPhone 5c and 5s, it seems that the market has price in the lack of innovation on the Ichimoku chart.
We can see a gap down on the daily chart. More importantly, the price remains below the kumo on the Weekly chart.
Clearly, this suggests that the major bullish trend is over for $AAPL.
The growth of the mobile device is hitting a plateau and the exponential growth in revenue may not be possible in the near term.
For those who bought at $700, it will be a very long term investment if one is going to hold and hope that $AAPL will hit the levels again in the next 1-2 years.
On the Ichimoku chart, /ES has break both support at Tenkan sen and Kijun sen. Not a good time to hold to the long positions.
