    Good risk/reward in Amazon.com

    Trader / TheSteadyTrader.com
    United States
    Shares of online retailing giant Amazon.com continue pushing higher despite or perhaps because of a large bearish crowd constantly trying to talk down the stock. After its most recent earnings report the stock has very well defined lines of risk/reward for traders to focus around.

    German IFO unchanged in May:

    A rather unexciting May IFO report out of Germany this morning shows unchanged confidence compared to April. The headline business climate index printed 108.5 vs. 108.3 expected and 108.6 prior helped by a gain in the current assessment index. This index rose to 114.3 from 114 while the more important (forward-looking) expectations index dropped to 103 from 103.4 as expected.

    A reading of 108.5 in the IFO business climate has historically been consistent with growth of more than 2 percent, but the euro area's largest economy only managed half that (1 percent) in Q1 compared to a year earlier. The annual growth rate is, however, expected to move higher and could well hit 2 percent in 2H'2015.

    French manufacturing confidence hits 46-month high in May:

    Buoyed by lower oil prices and a weak euro confidence among French manufacturers rose another point in May on top of the three gained in April (following an upward revision to 102 from 101). This implies a manufacturing confidence index of 103, the highest since July 2011. Consensus had only looked for a print of 101.

    The broader business confidence index also rose a point to 97 as expected. Services sector confidence rose three points to 95 while retailers saw a two-point increase to 106 and construction confidence gained a single point to 89.

    Another survey index, the composite PMI, printed 51 in May (and 50.8 for Apr-May on average vs. 51 in Q1) confirms the improved sentiment in France. However, the 0.6% Q1 GDP increase may be hard to reproduce this quarter, and our longer-term view for the French economy remains one of moderate growth: https://goo.gl/0IVdLN
