Apple Is Trending Higher While Amazon Is Trending Lower, Why?

Yesterday, the Trade Triangle technology flashed two important signals for two major stocks.

Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) triggered a new green weekly Trade Triangle, signaling that the upward trend was resuming. This signal pushed all of Apple’s Trade Triangles into the green column, indicating that higher prices could be ahead for this stock.

Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) triggered a new red weekly Trade Triangle, indicating prices should be going lower. This signal pushed all of Amazon’s Trade Triangles into the red column, suggesting downside pressure is ahead for this stock.

Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) - Major Trend Bullish

Apple, who has enjoyed remarkable "rock star status" in the past, has really fallen into a sort of pedestrian-type mentality and doesn't seem to have the cachet that it once enjoyed. However, the chart formation that Apple is coming out of indicates the potential for another big move up to the $700 a share level. Perhaps this has to do with the potential partnership with Comcast or some new technology that we have yet to see.

I like the overall chart pattern on Apple and the continuation Trade Triangle breakout to the upside. I also like the fact that the major support, which was the previous high seen in September of last year, also represented a major Fibonacci support zone for this stock. My analysis on Apple would change should it move below the $520 level and major support at $500.

Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) - Major Trend Bearish

Amazon has a long-term positive trend line in place starting from the lows that were seen in 2009. The other outstanding technical feature is the consistency of the cyclical low periods, which tend to occur every 16 to 18 months. If that holds true, I would not be surprised to see Amazon pulled back to its long-term support line around the $300 level. As you may know, Amazon sells for an earnings multiple way off the charts as it has yet to make any real money. I really like Amazon from a personal shopping viewpoint, but technically I do not like the stock at these levels.

I would love to hear your take on these markets and what you think is going to happen to both of these stocks.

  1. AAPL looks to be in a long and strong wave 3 of an Elliott 5 wave set. AAPL in my opinion is the stronger of the two fundamentally. My target for AAPL in the next 6-9 mo. is $650-700.
    AMZN looks to be in the early stage of wave 3 or C of a correction (weekly chart). With several options at this time, so the outcome to me is unclear.

  2. Dear Mr Hewison,
    I have long been wondering if there has been a schedule change to your video updates I have enjoyed so much so far.
    Will you please inform me of any new schedule?

    1. Hi John,

      At the present time we do not have a set schedule for the video updates. We are currently aiming for 1-2 a week along with single chart analysis post like today's.

      Every Success,
