General Motors (GM) is setting up for another pullback. The stock has been in rebound mode since early August but now appears to have run out of steam.
GM bottomed just below $33.00 nearly four weeks ago before tracing out a very light-volume rally. Yesterday the stock put in a new rally high after gaining 6% off the Aug. 7 spike low. GM is off only slightly today, and volume is still relatively light, but the price action is beginning to take on a more bearish look.
In late July, GM took a major hit with the help of a big surge in trade. Shares dropped over 4.4% on the July 24 after disappointing results for the second quarter.

This powerful breakdown, which began with a huge downside gap, lasted another six straight sessions before the momentum ran out. Selling pressure eased as key support near the May low came into play.
I believe that GM's rebound is over and another period of weakness will soon begin. The stock has been unable to attract fresh bulls since reversing on Aug. 7 and is now under the pressure of declining 50- and 200-day moving averages.
