The shares of Inc (NASDAQ:AMZN) recently formed a symmetrical triangle pattern on the daily chart, as well as a large cup pattern on the weekly chart. The equity also held its 50-day moving average with a break above the 20-day trendline and maintained support at its $135 level despite recent volatility, which had it oscillating between its January and March 2022 lows and July peak.

It’s also worth noting that large open interest (OI) at the 135-strike could be supportive of any pullbacks.
