BlackBerry Daily Chart Analysis

  • The stock looks to be forming a bottom and possibly getting ready to form into what technical traders call a cup pattern.

  • The $9 price level is an area where the stock has found support near multiple times in the past. If this area can continue to hold as support, the stock may start to form into the cup pattern.

  • The stock is trading below both the 50-day moving average (green) and the 200-day moving average (blue) Tuesday, indicating the sentiment in the stock is likely bearish.

  • Each of these moving averages may hold as a potential area of resistance in the future.

  • The Relative Strength Index (RSI) has been climbing the past couple of days and now sits at 49. This shows the stock has seen an increase of buyers in the past few days and buying pressure now almost equals the selling pressure.
