Apple, Amazon Face Tougher Scrutiny Reporting Earnings

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Important earnings reports continue and today I profile four more Dow components, two more tech bellwethers and a high-flying retailer. Investors and traders should continue to focus on the revenue line and forward guidance.

With Apple (AAPL - Get Report) and Amazon (AMZN - Get Report) reporting after the close on Thursday, my focus is on the Nasdaq following the drubbing it received last week.

The weekly chart for the Nasdaq shifted to negative with Friday's close below its five-week modified moving average at 3072.94 with the 12x3x3 weekly slow stochastic reading declining below 80.00 to 77.78. The downside risk is to the November 2011 high at 2861.51. My annual value level is 2698 with weekly, monthly, annual and quarterly risky levels at 3125, 3210, 3232 and 3295.

The daily chart for the Nasdaq shows the damage caused by Google (GOOG) on Thursday and Friday. Last week's high 3112.45 was set on Wednesday, and was just shy of the 21-day simple moving average at 3114.77.

On Thursday the Nasdaq fell below its 50-day SMA at 3096.76, which indicates risk to the 200-day SMA at 2969.94. My annual value level is 2698 with weekly, monthly, annual and quarterly risky levels at 3125, 3210, 3232 and 3295.
