Apple & Tesla Stocks Overview
Information is not investment advice
Apple stock grew by 2.75% during the trading session on August 30. It reached $153.48, which is an all-time high. Additionally, the Cupertino tech giant's market capitalization, which is calculated as multiplying the stock price with the number of outstanding shares, reached $2.53 trillion.
The Apple rally was caused by the news that the new iPhone 13 lineup will support satellite communications. It also comes days after Apple announced a settlement with developers that included new App Store policies, such as loosened rules on app makers communicating directly with their users.
Analysts expect Apple to present news iPhone 13 and Apple Watch 7 at the end of September.
The closest resistance for Apple stock is in the $157-158 range (where the price will meet the blue line which connects two previous highs). According to the Fibonacci expansion, the first target for this move is $170. The support level is $145.
The Tesla TSLA Model 3 is the fastest-selling electric car in Western Europe thanks in part to its strong range claims.
Tesla stock broke through $727 resistance and heading towards $770 now. On the way, it will meet $745 resistance, but it is doubtful it will create a big problem. As soon as the stock breaks through the $770 level it will be pumped to $800.
Support levels are $727 and $713.
On Thursday, the 2nd of February, the Bank of England will publish its report concerning interest rates and inflation data for the Eurozone. Professionals and investors anticipate that Andrew Bailey’s lead team of policy makers will likely raise interest rates to 4%; the highest in over a decade, for the tenth time in a row.
The first FOMC meeting comes after a buildup of anticipation from traders and investors alike, as the markets await what posture the Fed will take regarding the interest rates; would there be a hike or a cut in interest rates? Recall that the Federal Open Market Committee had previously ended the year 2022 with a 50bps hike, and an indication from Powell, the committee chairman, that the Fed could consider raising interest rates by 75bps in the course of the year 2023.
Western countries are trying to find other options for oil and gas supplies after a 10th package of sanctions, which will put more pressure on Russian oil and decrease global oil supply. Italy, for example, is in talks with Libya.
