Watch Apple, VIX for a Market Tell: Pros

Action in Apple and the volatility index could be providing bullish signs in the market, the CNBC "Fast Money" pros said Monday.

Joe Terranova of Virtus Investment Partners wasn't bullish on the stock market, saying that the process of it turning positive would be a three-day process.

"I think you stay cautious," he said. "If the market is going to turn, it's going to do so by Tuesday."

Terranova said that he was watching Apple to see if it "can find its trough."

Not ready to call the bottom, he said, "I think we're stabilizing, but I think we need more evidence tomorrow."

Drakon Capital's Guy Adami said he was looking at 1,379 as a level of support in the S&P 500, and saw a potentially positive sign.

"The fact that the VIX is as down as sharply as it is gives me some reason for optimism," he said.

OptionMonster.com's Pete Najarian said he was looking for pharmaceutical stocks, which were oversold last week in some cases, and financials.
