  1. Just an update on the potential pullback setup in $AMZN discussed in the video above.

    As of the morning of August 27, $AMZN has broken support and is trading at new lows for the month.

    If $AMZN convincingly closes the day at new swing lows, the setup is technically dead for now. However, this is no problem at all because the trade setup never triggered our buy entry (it would have needed to move back above its 50-day moving average).

    Furthermore, the video remains a great educational summary of the factors we look for in pullback trades, regardless of the individual stock being used as an example.

    1. Hi Mary,

      If you browse through blog, you will find that we don’t care about news. Rather, we focus on price and volume action (which may or not be based on news). We also don’t predict the direction stocks will go based on news or other events. We merely trade what we see, not what we think. Have a look at Why We Are Not Worried About A Government Shutdown, as it explains why we don’t trade news.

      Hope that helps.
