Apple Inc. – trading view

Source: IG

The share price has accelerated a pullback from near term highs following the release of Apple’s Q3 2023 results. The long-term trend does however remain up as we see the price still trading firmly above the 200-day simple moving average (blue line).

Trend followers might look for long entry on confirmation that the pullback has ended. A bullish price reversal around either the 181.70 or 176.40 support levels might provide such an opportunity. In this scenario, 197.95 would become a longer-term upside target, while a close below the reversal low might be used as a stop loss consideration.
