According to the 13F data, Buffett’s company had 483,300 shares wroth of Amazon worth around $860.6 million at the end of March. While it’s a relatively big position for any other stock, Amazon has traded for around a 920 billion market cap recently and Buffett himself isn’t responsible for the purchase. One or perhaps both of his investing lieutenants was. It should be noted that Buffett’s lieutenants first bought Apple and then Buffett himself jumped in, so there is still a chance for Buffett to potentially make a purchase himself down the road.

Similarly, if the candle appears during a breakout above a resistance area, the long white candle adds credibility to the breakout.
