Chartology: Chipotle (CMG) Pulling Back on Daily Sell Setup

Stock ChartsAfter forming a 5 week base, Chipotle (CMG) surged higher, retracing close to 50 percent of its April to August downdraft.

This surge also ended with a daily DeMark sell setup, a sign of near term exhaustion. As such, the stock has been pulling in over the past few sessions. Trying to gauge whether this is simple consolidation or a top and drop scenario can be difficult, so watch the character of the price action over the coming days (volume, indicators, candles, formation, etc…).

Technically speaking, and from a macro perspective, CMG likely needs more time to back and fill and consolidate. As well, the stock is still working off overbought signals and the 50 day moving average has yet to turn up. If long, remember to have a plan and define your risk. On the upside, layered resistance resides at 359 and 375.

Trade safe, trade disciplined.
