Intellectual property regulators in Beijing are forbidding Apple to sell models of its iPhone 6 and 6 Plus in the city, citing strong similarity to an existing Chinese phone. This is yet another key foreign market setback for the innovative giant. It is additionally worth noting that Apple’s quarterly revenue declined for the first time in 13 years primarily because of a sales drop-off in the Chinese market, causing approximately a three dollar per share decline. Currently, Apple is listed at 95.10 per share, down 0.24%.
Resistance: 96.66, 98.28, 100.14
Support: 94.50, 92.49, 89.91
