The stock lies in the middle of a weak rising trend in the short term and a further rise within the trend is signaled.Given the current short-term trend, the stock is expected to rise 5.00% during the next 3 months and, with a 90% probability hold a price between $186.02 and $203.76 at the end of this 3-month period.


There are few to no technical positive signals at the moment. The Amazon stock holds sell signals from both short and long-term Moving Averages giving a more negative forecast for the stock. Also, there is a general sell signal from the relation between the two signals where the long-term average is above the short-term average. On corrections up, there will be some resistance from the lines at $182.26 and $182.91. A break-up above any of these levels will issue buy signals. A sell signal was issued from a pivot top point on Thursday, May 09, 2024, and so far it has fallen -3.95%. Further fall is indicated until a new bottom pivot has been found. Furthermore, there is currently a sell signal from the 3 month Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD). Volume rose on falling prices yesterday. This may be an early warning and the stock should be followed more closely.

Amazon finds support from accumulated volume at $179.00 and this level may hold a buying opportunity as an upwards reaction can be expected when the support is being tested.

This stock is usually traded at a good volume, and with minor daily changes, the risk is considered to be low. During the last day, the stock moved $2.53 (1.39%) between high and low. For the last week, the stock has had daily average volatility of 1.70%.

Amazon holds several negative signals and this should be a sell candidate, but due to the general chance for a turnaround situation it should be considered as a hold candidate (hold or accumulate) in this position whilst awaiting further development.Due to some small weaknesses in the technical picture we have downgraded our analysis conclusion for this stock since the last evaluation from a Buy to a Hold/Accumulate candidate.
