From a technical perspective, CF is trending higher here well above its 50-day moving average of $206.07 with above-average volume. This move has started to push shares of CF into breakout territory, since the stock has taken out some near-term overhead resistance at $218.50.
Traders should now look for long-biased trades in CF as long as it's trending above today's low of $215.78 with strong upside volume flows. I would consider any upside volume day that registers near or above its three-month average action of 937,551 shares as bullish. If CF can maintain that trend, then this stock will have a great chance of tagging its next major overhead resistance levels at $225 to $226.04.
