4 Top Stock Trades for Monday

Pre-election volatility continues to increase, with FAANG stocks dragging the stock market lower. With that in mind, let’s look at a few top stock trades for next week. 

Top Stock Trades for Monday No. 1: Amazon (AMZN)

When I said FAANG stocks led the way lower, I should have sad FAANG minus the “G,” as Alphabet (NASDAQ:GOOGL, NASDAQ:GOOG) eked out a small gain on the day, up about 3%.

Here was my preview of Alphabet the other dayApple (NASDAQ:AAPL) is included in that piece as well. Facebook’s (NASDAQ:FBpre-earnings outline can be found here

How about Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN), though?

Shares are down more than 5% on what really was a pretty good earnings report. With the move, the stock is breaking below the 100-day moving average. The next level that pops up on my chart is the $2,900 area, provided $3,000 does not provide a bounce.

At $2,900, investors will find support from July and September. A close below $2,850, though, and Amazon could be heading towards the 200-day moving average.

On the upside, bulls will want to see AMZN eventually reclaim the 100-day and 50-day moving averages. Above that puts downtrend resistance (blue line) on the table.

Top Stock Trades for Monday No. 2: Twitter (TWTR)

Twitter (NYSE:TWTR) is getting killed on Friday, down more than 20% on earnings. The stock is knifing right through channel support and the 50-day moving average.

Is this stock doomed? Maybe, but it could find support in the $39 to $40 area. That’s no guarantee of course, but it’s where Twitter will find its pre-coronavirus 2020 highs, as well as the 100-day moving average. 

Are those the strongest levels of support? Not really. Especially in a heightened volatility situation. But it’s an area of interest to see how the stock responds. Below that will put the 200-day moving average on the table. On a bounce, see how Twitter handles the 50-day moving average.
