Market Realist has Why iOS 13 Is More Crucial for Apple than Ever. The article notes the inclusion of several new features, which are are surely intended to capture interest in a year when many folks will be looking ahead to the expected iPhone hardware advances next year.
Sometimes an article just gels with what you're feeling, along with maybe a tip or two. I lost the link on the reload, somehow Yahoo thought it was a live video, but it was very Ken Fisherish of taking a step back and looking at where we may be in the big cycle. In short, while the cycle is likely closer to the end, there's lots of people jumping for the exits at any dip, due to last year's dip and the recent memory of 2008. This sort of action, along with continued earnings growth, tend to keep the cycle going.
I agree with a commenter that I don't think many choose to miss out on gains in order to make the current POTUS look bad, but one could easily frame that instead as taking money out of the market due to trade war instability, and sort of get to the same conclusion.
There wasn't much more to the article, other than multiple TA stuff pointing to a change. One advantage of TA, at least in theory, is putting values out there. Thus while one might fall in with "the end of the world" psychology and stories, certain TA stuff could be saying "this is sold more than it should be, so take a 2nd look".
"What’s more fascinating to me is WHY this happens? There are several possible reasons. 1) Many people are becoming macro economists and over-thinking fundamentals rather than focusing on what the big institutions are doing. After all, they control the market, not the economists.
2) Many feel this recovery has gone on for too long and will end any day now, so they always have one foot out the door. Keep in mind the economy has recovered slowly and steadily for the past 10 years, but the stock market has seen 20% corrections in 2011, 2018, and a brutal bear market beneath the surface from mid-2015 through mid-2016.
3) I hate to bring up politics but many people can’t stand President Trump and want the stock market to fail in order to see him not get re-elected. As Warren Buffett says: “If you mix politics with your investment decisions you’re making a big mistake.”
4) The financial crisis of 2008-09 is still fresh in people’s minds. Therefore, any small correction leads many to rush for the exits in order to prevent a possible larger decline in their portfolios.
5) Many disagree with the actions of the Federal Reserve and the global central banks and feel that their easy money policies will eventually lead to a collapse.
Whatever the reason, it’s important to keep a level head during periods of market volatility and to not make investment decisions based on emotions. The two main drivers of the stock market are earnings and interest rates. Right now, earnings are growing steadily and it is really difficult to fight the globally coordinated effort by central banks to keep interest rates low and the markets high. In addition, this consistent fear that creeps into the markets on any little correction is what will keep us propped up for a while. After all, the markets are never obvious and they tend to fool the majority."

If the rumored square protrusion is near flush like this, it will look more than fine. Other rumors suggest Apple will add “Pro” to one of the iPhones. Both are reminders we don’t know everything about iPhone 11.
mercel: It's been a long strange trip - good to see you're still around (and in AAPL -my assumption).

sponge: Regarding the future of VR, I think it will be huge. I was a gamer when I was in college. But as an adult I lost interest. Last fall I flew up to visit my son at college and check out his new Vive set up. After playing with it for the weekend, I was
