Traders Take Note: Amazon.com Inc (NASDAQ:AMZN) Stock Drops, Weakness in Technical Momentum

Amazon.com Inc technical rating as of
(AMZN Price of Stock at Publication: $1571.68)

Take Note: Amazon.com Inc (NASDAQ:AMZN) has hit some technical weakness in its momentum, and while it has not broken down all the way through support -- watch the key levels that we discuss below and further, watch the stochastics and technical oscillators for any kind of momentum gaps.

The company has a two bull momentum rating which indicates weakness -- but not a full scale breakdown.
There can be a contrarian urge to enter a new long position as the stock drops, but as of this moment, the stock price is moving lower and may yet weaken further. If a reversal becomes apparent, waiting for that strength in the technicals may be more prudent than jumping in as the stock drops.




AMZN is up +33.3% over the last three months and up +59.3% over the last six months. The stock price is up +84.4% over the last year. The current stock price is $1571.68.

The technical rating goes from a rating of one, the weakest upside technical, to a rating of five, the highest upside technical. This is strictly focusing on price and technical -- that means we focus on real-time stock price movement and then position it relative to the simple moving averages. To make the technical rating meaningful, the moving averages are also compared to each other.

Golden Cross Alert: The 50 day MA is now above the 200 day moving average.
As we noted above -- the back of the envelope rule here is that when shorter-term moving averages move above the longer-term ones, momentum is building. We have that right now.

Swing Golden Cross Alert: The short-term 10 day moving average is now above the 50 day moving average.
When the shortest-term moving average (10-day in this case) moves above any other moving average (50-day in this case), momentum is climbing.

The pivot points and momentum reign here: Amazon.com Inc has a two bull (momentum weakness) technical rating because even though the stock is trading above its 10-, 50-and 200- day simple moving averages, the stock is down big on the day. We do note that the 10 day moving average is above the 50 day moving average (also called a "swing golden cross").




We now turn to the actual numbers driving this rating:
Amazon.com Inc (NASDAQ:AMZN) rating statistics:
10-day moving average: $1,566.86
50-day moving average: $1,423.26
