    I dont think looking at previous oi when a stock moves 25% means a thing.

    What did you expect?

    You have to go back a few years, but check out the weekly chart starting Sept 2004 for AMZN. You can draw a trend line on the highs from Sept 04, Jan 05, Dec 05 and to today’s high. It’ll be interesting to see if AMZN can break that line with its latest news.
