Amazon, H4 and Daily
US equities extended their bounce after Alphabet/Google earnings revived the FAANG trade and China stimulus hopes conspired to breathe some life back into the rally, despite headwinds from the $5 bln in EU fines on the former and a tariff war with the latter. The Dow is up 128-points, S&P500 gained 11-points and NASDAQ is up 27-points ahead of the opening gong.
Overall today, tech Stocks were boosted by a stellar earnings report by Alphabet, the parent company of Google, in a combination of signs that China is moving toward an easier policy stance. Meanwhile the agenda tomorrow and on Thursday has a plethora of earning reports, with Facebook report to be released after the US session today and Amazon on Thursday.
Additionally on tap today are: Advanced Micro, Align Technology, American Electric Power, Amphenol, Anthem, Barrick Gold, Boeing, Boston Scientific, Check Point Software, Citrix, Coca-Cola, Corning, Deutsche Bank, Equifax, F5 Networks, Facebook, Fiat Chrysler, Ford, Freeport-McMoran, General Dynamics, General Motors, Gilead Sciences, GlaxoSmithKline, Goldcorp, HCA Healthcare, Hess, Hilton, Ingersoll-Rand, Lab Corp., Las Vegas Sands, Mohawk Industries, Mondelez, Nasdaq, NextEra Energy, Norfolk Southern, Northrop Grumman, O’Reilly Automotive, PayPal, QUALLCOMM, Raymond James Financial, Rockwell Automation, Rollins, Sempra Energy, Sirius XM, Suncor Energy, T.

As the US stocks are now open, Amazon stock price was seen opening with a gap to the upside to 1,834.00 area, rebounding from yesterday’s lows at 1,772.80. The bullish movement was widely anticipated after the solid report from Alphabet.
Overall, the Amazon stock price retains a bullish bias with yesterday’s downside move considered as another short lived correction of the long-term upwards move since the sharp decline in March.
In the daily chart, the RSI indicator is sloping northwards close to the overbought barrier, while the MACD oscillator increases above its signal line suggesting further steam to the upside. In the 4-hour chart, the momentum indicators are mixed as RSI keeps presenting more of an upside movement in contrast to the MACD oscillator which shows a decline of the positive momentum. However the overall picture for Amazon remains to the bullish outlook.
Moreover, the next strong Resistance hurdle is at the 1,860.00 – 1,900.00 area, taken from the 61.8% Fibonacci extension level of the up swing from 1,645.72 to 1,858.18. Further gains above this area would lift the instrument up to next Resistance levels as per Fibonacci extension, at 1,985.00 and 2,040.00.
