Based on Elliott Wave Theory, after every 5 waves advance, a correction in 3 waves  takes place before the resumption of the main trend which is the main reason the market doesn’t run within a straight line. Currently, the rally which started back in March 2020 is aiming for an initial target at equal legs area $1103 – $1266 which can see Bulls taking profit causing a 3 waves pullback in a  potential wave II of (III) before the stock will find buyers again to be able to resume the rally.

The Mexican-food restaurant chain bullish structure is providing an edge for investor and allowing traders to join the trend during Daily pullbacks as long as $415 will remain in place.  The next correction will be so important for the stock to define the next key levels to trigger more momentum into the weekly cycle.
