The convergence of powerful indicators makes a strong case for Apple to pop very soon, according to the market analyst. “This looks like a very strong rally of at least 22 percent,” DeMark said. “We wouldn’t be surprised to see Apple gap up above $494, $495 despite trading lower in the aftermarket [Tuesday], and it will just move forward from there and be strong for the next couple of weeks and reach $600.”
According to DeMark, this was exactly like his call of a December 4 low in the Shanghai index, after which he turned positive.
“If the market were in decline further from here, we could see another $100, but we don’t see that happening,” he added. “The bottom is in.”
Apple closed 4.15 percent, or $20.17, up at $506.09 on Wednesday after DeMark’s interview.
