10:24 EDTAMZNAmazon.com technical comments ahead of earnings
The key technical feature, most easily seen on a 5-year chart, is that a recent bullish pennant pattern has completed. Heading into earnings, even good news might still result in a retracement which is typical following a pattern's completion. That process may be underway as price eases down from the life high at $493.20. If there is strongly bullish news, the life high is the only resistance level on the chart. A breakout would likely mean a move to $500 and potentially much higher. Without overhead resistance, there is nothing to prevent a further run. Potential targets at $525 and $550 could be tested given the momentum coming into earnings. But such a move would be an extension of the already-parabolic advance, and typically these do not end well. A better scenario would be a consolidation in price at higher levels that builds support. If the news disappoints there is little in the way of enduring support below given the recent jumps. There is a zone of support at the $450 area which could be tested. Such a price drop would retrace the entire "pole" off the pennant that has brought shares to current levels. Below $450 there is only the low of the pennant pattern itself at the $425 area and then a zone of support below at $410 to $400 due to a price gap which was the first breakaway from resistance at the $400 area.
