|The market does seem to be recovering after the six week selloff, but why are Apple (AAPL) shares continuing to fall? Are short-sellers going overboard? Rumor has it that the iPad 3 will be out in September, offering even better screen resolution, not to mention 3-D capability, so why the negativity?|
|FIGURE 1: APPLE WITH GANN SQUARES|

|Figure 1 is a Gann chart and shows the following:|
a. The first Gann square squared out at the $192 level, with the share price rising to $209.60 using the $192 level as a base before its next up move.
b. In the second Gann square, which squared out at the $303.78 level, the price rose to the $276 level, the 75% level before consolidating around the 50% level at $248.
c. The share price then rose into the third Gann square, topping out at $359.60, the 50% level, consolidating at $331, the 25% level.
d. This means that according to Gann, the price should move into the fourth square shown on the chart and test the $303.78 level, even possibly forming a base at the $276 level. With Apple's product strength, we could ask, "Why should this weakness happen?" I will not even try to answer that question.
Note that the share price has fallen below its 1x1 buy zone. I will now start looking for a new buy zone, hopefully from the $303.78 level. The relative strength index (RSI) is oversold and could suggest a buy soon, although any serious bad news could see the RSI meandering at this level as the share price forms a new base.
WD Gann would have sold AAPL shares at the $359 level, the sell zone as shown on the chart. He would not be a buyer at the moment but would watch the chart carefully as the share price moves into the fourth square, looking for a consolidation pattern to develop.
