After the 3 weeks of indecision and downtrend, this is highly likely to be a key reversal with the 3 targets outlined on the graph. Each target is in a fading blue/green because it becomes less likely from today's perspective.
I personally love trading those. On the chart I have shown a small 7 months backtrack test, showing that a pattern formed at a bottom are usually marking a bottoming market and a uptrend.
The patterns that do not form on a bottom are to be ignored.
The blue light that goes from top to bottom is marking a key date which is 23 October, where apple will be holding an investors speech and reporting the releases of new products.
Thanks for your question firstly.
At the moment it hard to say especially now at a time when Microsoft releases win8 along with the surface. Win 8 will be a big impact, completely changed and at the time when Apple has the most attention on . It will be integrated in Nokia HTC and other Apple competitors. It will be a very busy few weeks, I personally will keep publishing AAPL charts when I see a continuation or reversal so if you are happy, keep following.
I do agree, the more overview of other signals supporting this idea the more correct you will be trading the candlestick patters. In this case I just found it as an enough argument to point out that it was on a two month low at the trend line.
