Apple's most recent trend suggests a bearish bias. One trading opportunity on Apple is a Bear Call Spread using a strike $167.50 short call and a strike $172.50 long call offers a potential 7.3% return on risk over the next 8 calendar days. Maximum profit would be generated if the Bear Call Spread were to expire worthless, which would occur if the stock were below $167.50 by expiration. The full premium credit of $0.34 would be kept by the premium seller. The risk of $4.66 would be incurred if the stock rose above the $172.50 long call strike price.
The 5-day moving average is moving down which suggests that the short-term momentum for Apple is bearish and the probability of a decline in share price is higher if the stock starts trending.
The 20-day moving average is moving down which suggests that the medium-term momentum for Apple is bearish.
The RSI indicator is at 24.87 level which suggests that the stock is neither overbought nor oversold at this time.
