On this chart, I marked important resistance and support levels. The important support levels are $3100 and $3000, $3300 and $3500 represent the resistance levels.

If the price jumps above $3300 it would be a signal to buy Amazon shares and we have the open way to $3400. Rising above $3500 supports the continuation of the bullish trend and the next price target could be located around $3600.

On the other side, if the price falls below $3100 it would be a “sell” signal and we have the open way to $3000.
