Joe, take it easy on the name-calling...why don't you google "cup with handle reversal pattern"
clearly the cup with handle pattern can also be used to establish a downtrend reversal into a confirmed new uptrend...that means the stock isn't going down anymore, BB10 is great and word is getting out fast...the devices will be out fast too and then it's all over for shorts like you...I think that last part rhymed :-)
That's bs. There is NO long term rule. It just has to be in an uptrend which rimm clearly is in.
When this does break out over 17 within 5 trading days, will you admit you were wrong? Probably not seeing how you are a paid liar on this board.
