    AMZN – Looks interesting here after being range bound since Sept. It got up to resistance at the upper end where everyone is looking for a breakout but instead broke down for two days. The drop back down to 3400 did not discourage the bulls and the trend today seems to be resuming higher to once again try to take out the 3554 high. You certainly have seen the gap from the 200 day MA close during this long sideways consolidation. It seems like just a matter of what should be a short period of time until AMZN moves decisively higher to make new all-time highs.

    more hope than brains as a Canadian and an ex Montrealer…….the Habs are definitely outclassed… least it isn’t Toronto playing…..maybe next year……

  6. Ron/BC Says:


    Many years ago I used to watch Montreal and other teams play and I swore the officiating was fixed in Montreal’s favour. Used to drive me crazy until I stopped watching them play. Even now I just want to see the highlights if they lose. The previous game I turned on the tv briefly just in time to see Montreal score a goal. I quickly turned it off. Then last night I saw the Lightning score just as I turned the tv on and thought I might be able to watch the rest of the game without being punished. Almost immediately Montreal scored so I shut it off. As long as I don’t watch the game the Lightning have a good chance of winning. But Montreal doesn’t have Evan Cournoyer or Larry Robinson, Steve Shutt, Guy Lafleur, Ken Dryden,Chris Chelios and many others to help them out anymore…….thankfully.

    I remember Les Canadiens in the 50s and even went to a few games… those days the Forum just held about 12,000 fans including standing…..season tickets were left in wills to be passed on….Yvon Cournoyer……Hopefully spellcheck on your i-pad decided Evan was correct……always proud to be a Canadian……Happy Independance Day to those below the 49th parallel……..
