Out of these five stocks, four are at the right-hand side of the graph, indicating a relative uptrend against the Nasdaq 100 index.
NFLX is the only one on the left and inside the lagging quadrant, moving deeper into it at an RRG-Heading of almost 270 degrees suggesting that this is the stock to avoid in this universe.
AMZN is entering the leading quadrant but at a heading that has already rotated beyond 90 degrees which means that the relative uptrend has already started to lose power.
FB rotated into the leading quadrant a few days ago but has trouble breaking overhead resistance on both the price- and relative charts which causes the stock to roll over and lose relative power.
Of all five stocks in the FAANG universe, there is now only one that is rotating at a strong RRG-Heading, between 0-90 degrees.
Apple Inc. - AAPL
After having spent February inside a narrow trading range, AAPL jumped higher and confirmed that the rhythm of higher highs and higher lows that emerged out of the low that was set at the start of the new year is still in play.
The next challenge for AAPL is the overhead resistance at $185 where the stock is currently trading. A break higher will very likely ignite a further rally which can go as far as $195 where the rising resistance line resides that marks the upper boundary of the channel.
Additional strength for this stock lies in the fact that there is enough room to the downside to breathe without breaking the current positive structure.
The relative perspective, finally, also adds a positive note as the raw RS-Line is breaking above horizontal resistance which pushes the RS-Momentum line back above 100 and AAPL back into the leading quadrant.
