AAPL @ 401.65 is gapping down, and the impulse systems signaling BLUE. Potential gap-fill pattern in short term. If AAPL fail to penetrate 401, it will bounce up. Potential SHORT candidate, but need further RED signal from impulse system. Force Index still indicating that bulls are still in the market.

AMD @ $6.11 bearish move break through resistance EMA8. AMD is below value zone with the decline in progress. MACD confirmed the bearish trend indication. Force index also confirming that more bears are controlling the market. Impulse systems signaling RED, allowing SHORT trade only. Price is below MA20, so the nearest resistance has been broken.
