Stock update & is the AAPL break out trying to tell us something?

After a bumpy start to October, global stock indices staged a bit if a recovery last week and so I thought I'd check on some charts as we head into the final week of the month.

I had been hoping that we would get a deeper pull back here but this doesn't seem to be the case at present with the VIX, or 'fear' indicator, now back down to below 20. Added to this, AAPL looks to have started a bullish breakout and I'm wondering if this is a clue for the broader market. Some indices and stocks are back to looking bullish! Given I am an Aussie I've profiled quite a few Aussie stocks at the end of this report.

VIX weekly: still on a bullish triangle breakout BUT back below 20 for now:

S&P500 Monthly: we didn't get much of a pull back and I had thought the 1,577 might be tested.

DJIA monthly: I was expecting more of a pull back here too:

NASDAQ monthly: the 4,800 level is a key one to watch here.

Russell 2000 weekly: much has been made of the bearish pull back here but the chart has a bit of a 'Bull Flag' look to it now!

AAPL: the bullish Cup 'n' Handle pattern seems to have started! Is this trying to tell us the pull back is over?
