Apple Knocking On The Door Of Major Technical Breakdown, Lowest Level Since 2014

Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL) has made fresh 52-week lows on Thursday and is now in danger of a major technical breakdown. The $90-$92 level held as support for the stock during both the market’s January sell-off and last August’s flash crash. If Apple breaks down significantly below $90, the stock could be in for some major additional downside.

It’s hard to make a strong argument for Apple finding technical support somewhere in the $80’s. In fact, a breakdown below $90 could mean that shareholders are in for a repeat of the stock’s roughly 40 percent 2012-2013 pullback. That would mean that Apple could be headed to the $77 level before it possibly resumes its longer-term uptrend.

Regardless of where you see Apple eventually finding technical support, a dip below $90 would be a significantly bearish move.
