    Morning Markets: A kick in the glut
    Yesterday's US oil storage report confirmed an inventory gain, sending WTI crude below the $50/barrel mark for the first time since April. The fall in oil prices remains a key component of the worldwide commodities rout that has sent resource equities and currencies reeling.

    Apple: Watch the 200-day moving average

    Trader /
    United States
    Apple's below-par earnings resulted in the stock losing as much as 9% in after hours trading late Wednesday. This has pushed the stock to a critical line of support, a sustainable break below which would offer active investors a nice tactical trade to the short side.

    Why Apple is failing to impress investors

    Marie-Louise Møller
    Shares in Apple fell after its third quarter earnings failed to impress investors.

    Apple Watch launch 'better than iPhone and iPad'

    Business Insider
    Apple has sold more Apple Watches in its first nine weeks than the company sold original iPhones and iPads in the nine weeks following their launch. “We looked back at similar periods for iPhone and iPad when they were originally launched, and we’ve actually sold more Apple Watches than we sold iPhone and iPad at the time,” Apple CFO Luca Maestri told Bloomberg in an interview. “We feel very good about the start and what we feel particularly happy about is, frankly, the customer response, the feedback we’re getting.” This is good news for the company, since analysts had speculated that demand had dropped off sharply immediately following the release. Research firm Slice Intelligence had estimated orders to have dropped by 90% since the first week of availability. The iPad drastically outsold estimates when it first came out, moving 14.8 million units by the end of 2010 (it was released in April).

    Apple's forecast is the real problem

    Apple CEO Tim Cook said the company had an "amazing quarter". But unfortunately for him, writes Ari Levy, investors care much more about the forecast. The iPhone maker predicted fiscal fourth-quarter revenue of $49 billion to $51 billion, trailing the $51.1 billion average analyst estimate in a Thomson Reuters survey. The company had little margin for error after a 39% jump in the stock price over the past year. Apple shares dropped 7.3% in after-hours trading Tuesday to $121.18.
