A Chart Look at Amazon AMZN at the 160 Level

October 4th, 2010

Investors in Amazon.com (AMZN) have been treated to a multi-month rally, but we need to watch the $160 level as overhead resistance, look to short-term support, and note the key price levels that will be important in determining the next likely move for the stock.

Let’s start first with the Monthly ’structure’ view:

Without going too deep in the charting, I wanted to highlight the $160 level as being upper Bollinger Band resistance, a tiny ‘upper shadow’ on last month’s power-candle, and a slight rising trendline connecting the two prior price peaks to the current peak.

I also wanted to highlight the key support that occurred on the rising 20 month EMA in mid-2010 as a great lesson in how long term moving averages can be helpful for entering short-term positions.  That’s a classic “ABC” pullback there.

Anyway, now let’s drop down to the daily chart and see what short-term levels are important to watch:

September was an amazingly bullish month for Amazon.com, rallying from the $125 level all the way to peak at $160.

Whether or not $160 remains as an intermediate term peak, or just a shorter-term ‘blip’ in the bullish road depends in part on what happens during this recent pullback in price.

For example, we want to watch the $150 level, which is the confluence support of the rising 20 day EMA ($149.80) and the prior 2010 price high from April ($151) – both of which round down to the $150 ‘easy to remember’ level.

So if price continues its pullback decline to test $150, supports there and rallies higher, we may expect a further price break to new highs above $160.

A failure for price to hold support at $150 paints an entirely different chart picture, which would suggest at least a test of the rising 50 day EMA at $140.  And what happens at $140 would determine if we expect to fall further to the rising 200 SMA at $130.

These are all easy to remember reference levels that traders and investors should note as the stock continues to tread its way into the future.
