AMZN Looking Tired & Toppy Heading into Next Week's Earnings

Once again Amazon Inc. (AMZN) heads into earnings at a critical-chart inflection point.

We can make the case that its Jan-Mar advance from 285.25 to 389.32 (+34%) experienced a failed retest of the high on Tuesday, April 14, at 387.81, and that today’s sharp decline is leaving behind a potentially significant Double-Top at 388-389.

Although AMZN will have to break below 366/365 to confirm the Double-Top, it just happens that AMZN reports earnings on Wednesday, April 22, after the close-- just the sort of catalyst that either will penetrate the Double-Top formation, or repel it altogether.

Right now, I suspect that AMZN earnings will complete the Double-Top, and will drive the stock into the 340-320 support zone.
