Lululemon's price action placed the stock above the 200 day moving average but below its 50 day moving average, a setup that signals a possible break out.
Lululemon Athletica Inc. (NASDAQ:LULU) designs and retails athletic clothing. The Company produces fitness pants, shorts, tops and jackets for yoga, dance, running, and general fitness.
Lululemon seems to be setting up for a tight range between the 200 day moving average as support and the 50 day moving average serving as resistance.
A tiered approach, appears to be the best strategy to maximize possible movements in the stock, as traders could establish a small position in Lululemon and wait for the stock to break out above its 50 day moving average at $71.82. Then they could add to the position as momentum builds with the breakout. On the flip side, if support being referenced at the 200 day moving average set at $69.11 breaks, it could signal further downside pressure for Lululemon.
