    • Calebs:

      Thank you.

    • Who is Mookla? I've never heard of them and I couldn't find anything about them on the web. They must be very tiny, very secretive or very fictional...


    • ZQQ:

      Here's one way to draw support and resistance lines for RATL:

      1. Draw a 30-degree line across RATL's three intraday highs 10/14, 11/5, and 12/8. You'll see resistance at 13.25 but moving up.

      2. Plot another line almost parallel to the previous one at the bottom of the two cup formations. The trick being not to plot all the way down to the "panic bottom" 10/28. That's your support at 10.25 and moving up.

      3. Watch for breakouts from this channel upside or down. A 3% breakout indicates the price will make a move in the direction indicated by the breakout.



    • Calebs:

      Pleas tell us some thing about your magic charts. I wish if only I could get one.

    • I appreciate the technical help. It's just a gut feeling on my part that RATL is about ready to start the reversal you discussed. I think there will be an extended play into the software companies by the institutions, which I think just started. And many small investors will catch on with a little more proof of the switch to the software companies.
      It seems the BIG money moves in and out of the various segments of the market and if you can determine which ones they are leaving and moving into, it makes it a lot easier to make money.
      That's MHO anyway. Hope I'm right about the rotation into the software companies, because RATL will ride up with the rest, possibly being one of the better performers. Good luck all.

    • Competition from Oracle will be nominal at best (it was less than marginal this quarter despite the hoopla), sales of existing products are on track, there will be no big surprises such as extraordinary charges or BIG contracts that can move the stock price substantially. It will take the stock at least 2 quarters to break-out of the $10-12 range. RATL is investing money and effort in the development of its next generation of software as well as added dollars in marketing. That's all folks!

    • i would like to say i find your thread on ratl interesting and that i have heard from a reliable contact that ratl is going to announce a major contract from a huge telecommunications co. shortly. cannot elaborate more than that for now.
      good luck to those who wait.
