Amazon's most recent trend suggests a bullish bias. One trading opportunity on Amazon is a Bull Put Spread using a strike $2530.00 short put and a strike $2510.00 long put offers a potential 23.08% return on risk over the next 3 calendar days. Maximum profit would be generated if the Bull Put Spread were to expire worthless, which would occur if the stock were above $2530.00 by expiration. The full premium credit of $3.75 would be kept by the premium seller. The risk of $16.25 would be incurred if the stock dropped below the $2510.00 long put strike price.
The 5-day moving average is moving up which suggests that the short-term momentum for Amazon is bullish and the probability of a rise in share price is higher if the stock starts trending.
The 20-day moving average is moving up which suggests that the medium-term momentum for Amazon is bullish.
The RSI indicator is at 62.87 level which suggests that the stock is neither overbought nor oversold at this time.
