Is it safe to buy Apple stock?

Technically, Apple stock is trading within a bullish trend where the current price is above the 100-day moving average. 

The recent bullish rejection from the $167.39 signifies that bulls may regain the momentum to beat the current all-time high of $182.19. A break above the $182.19 level with a bullish daily candle will open rooms for testing the psychological $200.00 level.

On the other hand, a break below the $167.39 support level would increase the mean reversion possibility towards the dynamic 100 SMA and static $156.86 support level.
