Time to Go the Other Way?

Hey, Ross here:

And let’s start a new trading week with an actionable trading idea – but on the short side instead (you’ll find out why in the Insight of the Day).

Chart of the Day

Apple has been a top performer all year. The uptrend has been a thing of beauty – steadily marching higher since January.

But that ride is over. The stock fell 10% in a week and still failed to attract buyers. It finally broke down last week before reversing higher.

But that rally failed. And AAPL is again breaking through short-term support.

Traders may consider selling short AAPL stock here in a bet that it will go lower still. This is a very low-risk trade since you could place a buy stop at $182 and risk less than 3% on the trade.

Given the high price of the stock, it may be easier to simply buy a put option, like the AAPL $175 put that expires on October 20.

Insight of the Day

The most important skill as a trader is to be able to fluidly move with the market.

Stubborn traders go broke.

The market leaders have been rolling over and retracing beneath their 50-day moving average – a key level that generally supports top stocks through the move higher.

Nvidia’s blockbuster earnings report did not change that – which tells me the tech rally is likely over for now.

But just as we made money on the way up, we can do the same on the way down. That’s why today’s actionable trade idea is a short on AAPL.

The most important thing is to stay agile and fluidly move with the market. That’s how you can seize opportunities no matter what’s happening.

So, if you want to get a complete strategy for adapting to the volatile market and picking off opportunities most can’t see, just click here.

Brand New Strategy for Profiting from AI Stocks.

There’s a brand-new strategy in 2024 for going after big profits in AI stocks. It has nothing to do with Nvidia, Microsoft, Meta – or any of the big AI stocks the media can’t stop talking about.

It has to do with a fast-moving “backdoor” that has opened in the AI market... A backdoor that could send a very special class of AI stocks rocketing into the stratosphere.
