Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) Gaining Momentum

Here's a technical analysis of Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) chart. It is gaining momentum and looks like it is going to break out soon. It gapped up strongly today and closed above 200 days simple moving average with nice volume. Prior to this, in the last two months or so, it has also printed higher lows. A close above $82.5 with good volume would be a good breakout. But you'll need to measure your risk/reward to see if you prefer to trade the breakout or wait for the pullback.

At the moment, other stocks that I'm watching closely are: BEN, UTHR, SNDK, WYNN and ACI

Just dropping in to say I enjoy reading your blog. Keep it up. I trade options also, on simple moving average crossovers, and some neutral strats such as straddles and strangles.
