Apple Stock (AAPL) Update: 3 Drives To A High?

The price action of Apple (AAPL) has been very harmonic and balanced.

Today, I aim to provide an update on where the most-watched (and most important?) stock may be headed next.

  • The ORANGE Elliott Wave count is still preferred.  It’s the count that’s worked for the past couple years.  Could this big ORANGE 5 extend –certainly.  However, let’s look at the form/proportion.

  • A very harmonic 3 drive to a top (shown by the blue triangles) is present w/ the time component of each drive shown a the top right of the chart pattern (next to the big 5)
  • Bearish Divergence present on the monthly chart
