Brian Shannon thinks it’s possible for $105 to become a resistance level, instead of support.

Shannon is the founder of Alphatrends, in addition to being a full-time trader, educator and author of “Technical Analysis Using Multiple Timeframes.” He recently joined Benzinga’s #PreMarket Prep to talk about what might make shares of Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL) drop below $105.

Recent Action

First, he recapped the recent trading action, starting with the peak at $120, followed by a decline to the $105 level. The stock then bounced back up to $115, but Shannon explained it fell again, and the sellers took control at about the $112 level.

“But what we’re starting to look like is the sellers get more aggressive price-wise, not waiting for the rallies up to $115 or $112 to take control, and the tests of support are becoming more frequent at this $105 level,” he said.

Moving Back Up

For Apple to become more neutral in the intermediate term, Shannon thinks it needs to move above the $109 level and hold. To get back into positive territory, Shannon said it would really have to take out the most recent low or high at $113.

Shannon views Apple stock as being in “no-man’s land” at its current level; he said it could be setting up for a decline.

The Potential For Decline

Shannon emphasized examining the $105 level.

“If we break below there and hold below for a day or so, it seems likely that support we’re seeing in the $105 area will become resistance and the stock will decline further,” he said.

He also talked about why he likes trading stocks like Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. (NYSE: BABA) and GoPro Inc (NASDAQ: GPRO) on the weekly options.
