On Wednesday, AAPL floated up towards 97 but fizzled down to mid-95 by the end of the day. On Thurdsay, AAPL bounced at the mid-95 waterline and participated in the "premature" Bremain surge at the end of the day, ending above 96. On Friday, AAPL got zapped 2.81% by the Brexit shadow on huge volume. AAPL opened down at 92.88 on gigantic volume and quickly set an intra-day low of 92.65 before bouncing up to a high of 94.65 at 9:56am. AAPL then drifted towards 94 and made periodic dips below into the upper-93 area and another short-lived attempt above 94 before lunchtime before slipping down below 93 after 3pm and a small relief bounce to the mid-93 area into the close. AAPL ended intra-day OPEX down 2.70 at 93.40 and dropped 14 more cents in after-hours to 93.26.
This morning in pre-market, AAPL opened down in conjunction with Futures on Brexit momentum and hit a low of 92.55 before bouncing back to 93 in a controlled recovery. AAPL is currently down 29 cents at 93.11 as we approach the open.
