Key BlackBerry Levels To Watch

  • This bullish reversal pattern happens after the stock makes a large run up and starts pulling back. The slope of the line connecting the highs is much steeper than the line connecting the lows.
  • The resistance and support lines in the second pattern are of the same angle as the lines in the first pattern. As stock moves tend to repeat themselves, the lines taken for the second pennant were copies of the support and resistance in the first pattern.

What’s Next For BlackBerry?

Bullish technical traders would like to see the stock trade within the pennant pattern for a time to help build up some momentum, and then see a break of pattern resistance similar to the first pennant breakout.

Bearish technical traders would like to see the stock fall below the pattern support. If the stock is able to fall below the pattern support and consolidate for a time, the stock may see a further downward push. Bears would also like to see the stock fall below the moving averages.
