Chipotle has been building a very large base over the last couple of years. With Tuesday's move, it is now trying to break out above the consolidation. The SCTR has resumed its strong presence, while the relative strength in purple continues to run to the upside. The full stochastic is showing strength here as the price sits at the breakout level. One of the indicators I like the most here is the PPO, which is bouncing off the zero line after pulling back. This looks like a long runway for Chipotle. I think a tight stop in the high $480s should give it all the wiggle room you'd want to give should it fail to hold the breakout.
