Is $AMZN stock a buy?
Currently, Amazon stock matches one trading strategy:
ATH buy setup
One of the most recommended trading strategies is to buy on All-time Highs (ATH) breakouts. The good point of buying at ATHs is that shares price doesn't struggle with upper resistances, and usually it scales quickly. However, you must always be aware of a possible bulls trap that may trigger your buy order and then drops sharply. That's why a stop loss is so important. Amazon can break to ATH any time soon, as it only needs to rise a 3.93%. The buy point is at $3,773.08 if you want to trade with this strategy. Arm your stop-loss at $3,395.77
|Buy setup||Buy point||Stop loss||Risk|
|ATH buy setup||$3,773.08||$3,395.77||10.00%|
