Amazon's most recent trend suggests a bearish bias. One trading opportunity on Amazon is a Bear Call Spread using a strike $1667.50 short call and a strike $1672.50 long call offers a potential 33.33% return on risk over the next 7 calendar days. Maximum profit would be generated if the Bear Call Spread were to expire worthless, which would occur if the stock were below $1667.50 by expiration. The full premium credit of $1.25 would be kept by the premium seller. The risk of $3.75 would be incurred if the stock rose above the $1672.50 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 65.17 level which suggests that the stock is neither overbought nor oversold at this time.

The costly journey of returned goods means big business for some
Thu, 13 Dec 2018 06:32:00 +0000
Last year, customers in the U.S. returned about $351 billion worth of items that they had purchased from brick-and-mortar retailers and online stores, according to estimates by National Retail Federation. Buyers return a huge number of packages they buy from Amazon and other e-commerce sites, so much so that retailers are sometimes left with little choice but to get rid of large swaths of inventory at a cost. There's a good chance that the $100 printer, the $300 wide-screen monitor, or the $170 router you recently bought from Amazon AMZN weren't supplied to the e-commerce giant by their original manufacturers.
