Focus: STOCKS

Shares of Apple Inc (NASDAQ: AAPL) are approaching their all-time highs, which are likely to be do-or-die levels for this widely followed tech stock.

Apple's 2008 rally high was $192. Apple closed on Monday, September 21 at $184.02, only 4% from this critical resistance level.

To add to the concerns, Apple's 2007 high, and all-time high, is at $200 a share, only 4.2% higher.
 
Apple is in a strong uptrend and no one can tell just how far such a trend will go. Usually, it is much further than anyone guesses. But these highs are critical and must be surpassed for this strong uptrend to continue.

A reversal at or near $192 can be traded with a short sale and buy-stop just above this $192. But be careful with shares of Apple. There are a lot of traders who love this stock. A close above either of these highs could result in some fast gains in very short order.
