Amazon's most recent trend suggests a bearish bias. One trading opportunity on Amazon is a Bear Call Spread using a strike $1750.00 short call and a strike $1755.00 long call offers a potential 25% return on risk over the next 9 calendar days. Maximum profit would be generated if the Bear Call Spread were to expire worthless, which would occur if the stock were below $1750.00 by expiration. The full premium credit of $1.00 would be kept by the premium seller. The risk of $4.00 would be incurred if the stock rose above the $1755.00 long call strike price.
The 5-day moving average is moving down which suggests that the short-term momentum for Amazon is bearish and the probability of a decline in share price is higher if the stock starts trending.
The 20-day moving average is moving down which suggests that the medium-term momentum for Amazon is bearish.
The RSI indicator is at 49.22 level which suggests that the stock is neither overbought nor oversold at this time.

After Aramco’s Record IPO, Barely Any of Its Stock Will Trade
Tue, 10 Dec 2019 09:54:04 +0000
(Bloomberg) — Saudi Aramco will surpass Apple Inc. as the world’s biggest listed company when it debuts this week after a record-breaking initial public offering. Unlike the tech titan it displaces, barely any of its shares will trade.The Gulf oil giant sold a 1.5% stake in the IPO, while the remainder stays in the hands of the Saudi state. That free float, or the proportion of stock owned by public investors that can change hands, is among the lowest globally. Many of the biggest companies, from Amazon.com Inc. to Microsoft Corp., have more than 80% of their equity owned by independent shareholders.Among the top 1,000 listed companies by market value, only two companies have lower free floats than Aramco, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. One is carmaker Audi AG, which has a float of 0.36% with the rest owned by manufacturing behemoth Volkswagen AG. The other is state-controlled German utility EnBW Energie Baden-Wuerttemberg AG, which has 0.37% of its stock in public hands, the data show. Its two biggest investors each own 46.75%.Low public ownership levels mean that the Saudi government can push through decisions that are good for the country, but not necessarily Aramco’s minority shareholders. The company, which starts trading Wednesday, will also be captive to OPEC. Saudi Arabia is the de-facto leader, meaning Aramco may have to shoulder the burden of production cuts if others don’t meet their obligations.That level of control could affect your retirement account. Thanks to the popularity of index-tracking funds, many investors will own Aramco shares whether they want to or not.The company is so big that index compilers like MSCI Inc. and FTSE Russell can speed up its inclusion in global benchmarks. Aramco will likely be given a weighting of about 0.7% in the MSCI Emerging Markets Index, triggering $2.4 billion of automatic buying from funds that follow the gauge, according to analyst estimates.To be fair, even companies that float most of their shares on the public markets find ways to concentrate power at the top. Silicon Valley behemoths like Facebook Inc. have special stock classes giving founders outsized control over decision-making.Fund managers have given Mark Zuckerberg the benefit of the doubt, thanks to strong returns he’s delivered. The question is whether they’ll do the same for Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.\–With assistance from Christoph Rauwald, Mathieu Benhamou and William Wilkes.To contact the reporters on this story: Ben Scent in London at firstname.lastname@example.org;Jacqueline Gu in New York at email@example.comTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Ben Scent at firstname.lastname@example.org, ;Yue Qiu at email@example.com, Amy ThomsonFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.
