Posted on April 30, 2019 at 12:45 pm GMT

Apple’s stock price gave up some gains after topping at a fresh five-month high of 208.39 last week and as the RSI in the four-hour chart peaked in overbought area.

Posted on April 19, 2019 at 1:19 pm GMT

US equity markets have been on a tear in 2019, reclaiming lost ground to come within breathing distance of their all-time highs. The rally has been fueled mainly by the Fed putting its rate-hike plans on ice, though easing trade tensions and corporate buybacks helped as well.
