Upgrades / Downgrades

OMG Amazon

Amazon put up an absolutely gaudy earnings report last night and joined many of its other megacap tech peers that blew away earnings.  THe stock popped, but not crazy.  Many folks are wondering if it gets better than this with re-opening on the horizon.  MSFT / NFLX / TSLA / AAPL all had bearish earnings reactions and those are holding QQQ back. As you’ll see below, the Q’s need to take out $342 where its been pinned below for a few weeks.  For today, watch for a potential fade on Amazon. Pundits familiar with Amazon say Jeff Bezos and his ex-wife always sell shares after earnings. Could put pressure shares in the days ahead.  Many were disappointed that Amazon has not followed AAPL and TSLA to split the stock.

Tons of Bracket Trade Set ups

Tons of gaps out there to watch / trade.  In addition to several of the FATMAAN names with gaps to fill, I review TWTR, PINS, SWKS, WDC and PTON that have well-defined set ups.


A detailed walk-through of the levels and trading strategy for the indexes is given in the video ( link above) . The static charts are provided for reference. The FATMAAN names are also reviewed in the video.
