Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) ‘Golden Cross’ pattern has formed
Warren Buffet’s company buying Amazon stock wasn’t the only thing that sent money-folks tongues wagging this week. Yahoo! Finance noticed that a ‘Golden Cross’ pattern has formed. After seven weeks of upward momentum, something Amazon has not seen in decades, the stock could be set for further momentum…or a drop. It’s the stock market after all.
Used by technicians, a golden cross is when the stock’s short-term moving average, such as the 50-day, crosses above its longer-term moving average like the widely followed 200-day moving average. This is typically seen as a bullish indicator since there’s demand to the upside, which in turn could be an indication that investors believe the stock is poised to break out.
Freightwaves broke the news that Amazon Freight is now accepting customers as it pushed freight.amazon.com live and began undercutting prices from 26% to 33%. Freightwaves believes the move is to lower Q4 costs but also to reduce reliance on trucking in the piece:
Amazon already moves an enormous amount of freight through its distribution and sortation centers and has an extensive network of trucking carriers. For many industry observers, it was only a matter of time before Amazon leveraged the implicit network effect — the total number of shippers and carriers who do business with Amazon — and connected both sides of its business.Part of this business may be to hedge against the volatile price of trucking capacity: by building a large freight brokerage business, AMZN is turning part of its cost into revenue. After all, Amazon is already a top ten international freight forwarder for Asian ocean freight inbound to North America.

Momentum is a general term used to describe the speed at which prices move over a given time period. Generally, changes in momentum tend to lead to changes in prices. This expert shows the current values of four popular momentum indicators.

Commodity Channel Index (CCI)
The CCI shows overbought (above 100) and oversold (below -100) areas. The current value of the CCI is 124.This is an overbought reading. However, a signal isn’t generated until the indicator crosses below 100. The last signal was a sell 3 period(s) ago.
The Moving Average Convergence/Divergence indicator (MACD) gives signals when it crosses its 9 period signal line. The last signal was a sell 1 period(s) ago.
