Rick Ackerman is the editor of Rick’s Picks, an online service geared to traders of stocks, options, index futures and commodities. His detailed trading strategies have appeared since the early 1990s in Black Box Forecasts, a newsletter he founded that originally was geared to professional option traders. Barron’s once labeled him an “intrepid trader” in a headline that alluded to his key role in solving a notorious pill-tampering case. He received a $200,000 reward when a conviction resulted, and the story was retold on TV’s FBI: The Untold Story. His professional background includes 12 years as a market maker in the pits of the Pacific Coast Exchange, three as an investigator with renowned San Francisco private eye Hal Lipset, seven as a reporter and newspaper editor, three as a columnist for the Sunday San Francisco Examiner, and two decades as a contributor to publications ranging from Barron’s to The Antiquarian Bookman to Fleet Street Letter and Utne Reader.


The post-covid bull market begun in the final quarter of 2020 is running out of room, at least on the daily chart. The 184,86 target shown, a Hidden Pivot resistance, is not the highest that can be projected, but it still looks capable of restraining the charge, if only for a short while.  Sliding ‘A’ down to the 118.70 low recorded on March 4, 2021, produces an alternative high at 190.90, but we’ll wait to see how buyers handle D=184.86 before we raise our sights.  To stretch your bullish imagination, but also to be on record with a seemingly outrageous forecast, let me introduce a 253.96 target with this weekly graph.  We’ll be better able to make book if the stock exceeds 184.96 and stalls at the 189.07 midpoint. That would make 253.96 more plausible as an objective, especially if AAPL stabs through p=189.07 and closes above it the same week.
