Amazon beefs Up For Q4, Are You Buying?

Amazon(NASDAQ:AMZN), the world's largest online retailer just announced that is hiring 70,000 new employees for Q4 and I see this as a big positive for this stock. I have been positive on Amazon for some time now, but I see this fourth-quarter as being a potential (knock it out of the park) quarter for this company.

I recently purchased some bicycle parts from Amazon, and as usual Amazon delivered, as promised, on time, and the parts were perfect. I'm not sure how it is with your friends and family, but it seems that all of my family and friends order from Amazon.

Millions of people purchase from Amazon(NASDAQ:AMZN) over the course of the year, and that trend isn't likely to slow down anytime soon unless there is a major Black Swan catastrophe.

From that cyclic low of $219, the market rallied to reach a high of $284, which represents a $65 swing from low to high (see first orange arrow on the chart).

This is my number one indicator for large cyclic trends. You may want to watch this index carefully should you want to invest in certain stocks and commodity related markets.

Over the last half-century, this index has seen some remarkable moves both on the upside and more recently on the downside. I believe that this is the indicator that everyone should watch. If you trade stocks or futures and are interested in world trade trends, this is the indicator to track.
