Google GOOGL and Amazon AMZN are Giving the Same Trading Setup

Dec 17, 2015: 11:10 AM CST

Whether you’re a Google (GOOGL) or Amazon (AMZN) trader, these high-flying, uptrending stocks are showing an identical set-up at similar levels in their trend.

What’s the pattern and what do we expect next? Let’s find out.

We’ll start with Amazon.com (AMZN) during the holiday season:

Amazon.com (AMZN) is uptrending and has formed two prior “resistance trendlines” as drawn.

At the moment, shares are once again trading into the underside of a resistance trendline near $680.

It’s this level on which we’ll focus our attention and trading activities.

A breakout higher – just like the other two times – could result in an impulse higher above $700.

However, what would appear more likely is that shares continue to resist against the upper trendline and then trade lower, toward $650 or even the $630 level.

Your trade would simply be the movement “Away From” the current resistance pivot price.

We’re seeing a near-identical picture (and opportunity) develop in GOOGL:

Google (or Alphabet if you want to be technically correct) similarly created two resistance trendlines.

Both times, price broke and shattered resistance with a gap-up event and breakout power swing.

Like Amazon (AMZN), GOOGL is resistance near the $780 per share resistance trendline.

A downward swing targets $740 at the lowest point of support; a breakout would stretch above $800.

We’re seeing negative momentum divergences in both of these stocks which does increase the odds that resistance for now will hold.

Continue focusing on these two price levels in these high-flying, uptrending, popular stocks.

    It is only going to get better in coming years, but still one has to be careful with things as dips are likely to occur, so that is why we have to be careful. I have been trading with OctaFX broker, I always prefer to trade with stuff that I am comfortable with and that’s where I get massive help with rebate program that gives me 50% back on all trading orders even on the losing trades too, it makes me highly comfortable.
