This Daily chart of $AAPL shows a consolidation pattern forming. A breakout to the upside I believe ill be coming in the next few days on IPhone announcement, barring any software or technical errors. At which point I Believe $AAPL will trade within the boxes in the chart until the upcoming earnings call. Which should move the stock price up in anticipation. $AAPL will become a long swing when it breaks out above 422.85 (previous high).
My Trading Plan: will go long on consolidation BO, bc I believe it will re-test highs : target 420. Then it should consolidate within the green box before taking out previous highs in earnings move.
I am also LONG Oct. 22, 2011 395 @ 17.70 for earnings push. Might let these expire, or cash out early.
