What's Next For Amazon? 

Bullish traders would like to see Amazon build higher lows up to the top of the channel. A cross above resistance with some consolidation could bring the price to see a higher push.

Bearish traders would like to see the stock fall back to the support level. If the price were to cross below this potential support level, the stock may see a further bearish push.

Volume is key to watch as well when the stock is nearing the support or resistance lines. If the stock were to cross one of the lines with strong volume, the stock may see a further push in the same direction. Low volume at a key level may hint a trend change is coming.
