There was a big volume move up from $11 to $14 five days before the Microsoft news.
I'm not going to waste my time debating (educating) you about technical analysis, but I will say that if you can learn to read a chart and look for clues based on volume, support/resistance levels and technical patterns that millions of traders use, you will get better results.
Next you'll be pulling out the Tarot cards........
I have to put you on ignore.
The only thing about the retracement and support around $17 was the fundamental fact that there was a $17 convertble strike price on the Liberty stake and a $14 book price already before the MSFT deal. That was a no brainer unless there was a serious market break down. We are now moving up as we ran out of sellers two sessions ago as indicated by volume reporting.
You need to learn how to use all information available before you claim the B.S. you do "After The Fact".
I was wrong about the bottom so far. I called the bottom at $17.40 one day early. It was actually $17.05 yesterday.
What did we get from you besides a vague range of a prediction that your chart said when it would turn around eventually? When did you predict it would jump to $23 in one day?
I told not to dig a big hole and you did it anyway. That's as foolish as not usuing all information and admitting it is necessary because you are lazy or a fool.
