Starbucks SBUX head and shoulders top in place

NASDAQ:SBUX   STARBUCKS CORP
354 5 8
See chart.

See the price of coffee             KC1!             has doubled this year: from just over $1/lb to over $2/lb.

Note: Retailers are weak. Economy is flat. People spent their money on home heating oil             and high energy costs and have been cutting back on discretionary coffee             purchases. Perhaps the K-Cup is eating into SBUX             business. $1 at home instead of $5 out at the local             Starbucks             .

Technically, the last rally should have taken out any weak shorts and it maintains a nice downward trend with a very visible "level of maximum supply" at 77 that I have labeled. You can see that over 20 days of trading action             have occurred at that price and it represents supply or "breakeven- itis" selling that can take place. Those who bought there are happy to exit at breakeven.

Good trading to you.

Good call on the short. Good explanation. Nice support here but i'd like to see it close gap 68.30. Also keep in mind Earnings. My target was $70 and exited. Don't like holding through earnings as stocks tend to be sporadic. It's usually a crap-shoot.

I disagree with one thing...No matter how high my heating bill gets I'm getting my Starbucks...And so are other people...It's legalized Crack....

But I did like how you backed up your technical pattern with their costs doubling...Can't argue with that....

Thanks Chris. Perhaps those who are "on the cusp" or "living paycheck to paycheck" will cut back on a new shirt or new clothes in order to keep the smart-phone lit up and the Starbux in the cup. I appreciate the feedback, anytime.
