It will make Amazon closer to Netflix in terms of gotta-see-it content and prominence. Overall, there has been just good news for Amazon so far.
It’s better to look at the weekly chart to see the whole picture. Since mid-summer of 2020, Amazon was moving back and forth in a horizontal corridor between $2900 and $3500. This week, it has escaped that corridor breaking above the resistance of $3500! Will it reach $4000 soon?
