Daily Ichimoku chart of AAPL

$ AAPL rises from the lows of $390 till $500 on news that Ichan has acquired stakes in it.

Weekly Ichimoku Chart of AAPL

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.

$AAPL has fallen on various reports that it is cutting down on parts for iPhone.

As it falls, it presents a good buying opportunity (bullish).

Currently, $AAPL has drop to about $500 and is trading near the kumo support.

It has not pierce through the kumo yet suggesting that the bearish trend is not confirmed yet. There is a chance that it will bounce from this level.

However, we need to have a cut-loss in mind at around $497.
