On the upside, there is an intermediate-term Fibonacci resistance zone from 256.63 – 270.23. On the downside, there a lower Fibonacci support at 221.53 followed by cycle low support at 192.58. Our analysis suggests that for Apple stock bulls to regain control of the intermediate-term, we would likely need to see a weekly close above 283.83.
askSlim Sum of the Evidence

AAPL is due to form an intermediate-term bottom and has negative weekly momentum. Given these conditions, we would expect any sell offs in the near-term to be limited to the weekly support zone beginning at 221.53. There is a likelihood that the stock tests 256 by mid-April.
