i noticed market down trends start after a major company posts solid earnings; so strong it almost gives the impression they peaked ( for the moment). i remember a few years back Intel reported a solid quarter and raised guidence. the stock was up almost 2 bucks but slowly sold off throughout the day as the market tanked. there are a few more examples such as qualcomm and chip equipment companies but need to look some others up. now we have Apple, the most powerful quarter i have ever seen and block buster guidence. could the market be looking at Apples earnings as a short term peak? the stock was trading at 559 pre market and has since dropped almost 10 points. only time will tell but market tops usually happen when things get overly good for a company. market bottoms happen when things get overly bad. just a thought.
