Amazon’s most recent trend suggests a bullish bias. One trading opportunity on Amazon is a Bull Put Spread using a strike $982.50 short put and a strike $977.50 long put offers a potential 36.99% return on risk over the next 8 calendar days. Maximum profit would be generated if the Bull Put Spread were to expire worthless, which would occur if the stock were above $982.50 by expiration. The full premium credit of $1.35 would be kept by the premium seller. The risk of $3.65 would be incurred if the stock dropped below the $977.50 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 57.05 level which suggests that the stock is neither overbought nor oversold at this time.
