Amazon stock draws a lot of investors. Over the past 12 months the stock has risen 50% and presently looks like it might want to try to challenge the most recent all-time high. The stock has 4 support levels at present. Two are very strong. The first support level is at $260 and the second at $285. The third level at $345 and the fourth at $390 have limited support although the $345 is better support than the $390. The option premiums are excellent as the stock tends to fluctuate throughout the day. On a day like today (March 19 2014) for example, put premiums were excellent as the stock ranged from $369.42 to a high of $379 for a range of just less than $10. Even Apple Stock today ranged just from a low of $529 to a high of $536.24 or slight more than $7.00 so you can see just how volatile Amazon Stock can be. This also makes the stock a prime candidate for put and call credit spreads at varying times throughout the year.
