Amazon's most recent trend suggests a bearish bias. One trading opportunity on Amazon is a Bear Call Spread using a strike $390.00 short call and a strike $400.00 long call offers a potential 56.25% return on risk over the next 24 calendar days. Maximum profit would be generated if the Bear Call Spread were to expire worthless, which would occur if the stock were below $390.00 by expiration. The full premium credit of $3.60 would be kept by the premium seller. The risk of $6.40 would be incurred if the stock rose above the $400.00 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 37.28 level which suggests that the stock is neither overbought nor oversold at this time.

Amazon Wants To Include Peer-to-Peer Payments In Its “Real World” PayPal Competitor
Thu, 30 Jan 2014 00:30:33 GMT
TechCrunch – Earlier today, the WSJ published a report on how Amazon is building a Kindle-based point-of-sale payments service for local merchants using technology it picked up via its Gopago acquisition –something we actually reported on back in December. In fact, this looks like just part of what Amazon has in mind. The e-commerce giant is also developing a solution for person-to-person payments, putting it in even closer competition with P2P payment giant PayPal. Those Amazon phones we and others keep talking about could be coming soon — the latest that we’ve heard, by the way, is that they may get announced in the next 60 days and ship this summer. Amazon describes the P2P solution as being part of a bigger strategy to build “products and services which will delight billions of customers as they buy and sell things in the real world.” The company is currently looking to hire a number of developers in offline payments.
