Sorry....don't see it, if this is the case I'm feeling a negative price effect. FB is nothing but Google on steroids when it comes to invasion of privacy.
I see it as polarized...see what happens.

Man, it is HARD riding RIMM. I promised myself I'll stop trading it at least until Jan 30th so I didn't take profit before end of day yesterday, knowing full well that there'd be a pullback today. Now I know how the long term investors feel
She'll bounce though, don't panic.

First I made the mistake back in November to sell on a pull back but it immediately jumped up much higher and I missed the entry point.
I then waited thinking it would drop pre-earnings, but it kept going up. I then said I'll buy some pre earnings and some post earnings. Ended up dumping my money in the day of the earnings and then it dropped a rock. I haven't touched it since. I need to actually learn how to trade stocks and look at technicals and what not. lol I'm flying half blind here!! Though the one guideline is that shiny black backing of the BB10 phone on the horizon. You know, that promo photo that is plastered on all major carrier and store website.

I've been tempted to trade too but I didn't for this very reason. While the earning call was going on, it hit $15 and I was tempted to sell. If I had, I could have bought so much for just an hour later! Yesterday, I was tempted to sell but I didn't. If I had, I could have bought a few more on the dip today. Playing on the swings is a very good way to increase your stock-pile (so to speak) of RIM shares but I worry that I might lose a good entry point. So, I am just staying put. I get elated when price rises and feel down when it dips but overall I am not trading at all. The ride, sure, is very rough. High volatility in RIM, though, is making me bipolar!***
1. Fix Contacts App (at the bare minimum: create 2 options - clear all links and disable auto-linking of contacts)
2. In your advertisement/commercials, please advertise "Android Player" as one of the features (you could show/print Android logo and advertise limited compatibility)
3. Support Google Play / Google APIs in Android Player so Google Now, Maps, Hangouts/Voice work flawlessly or convince Google to develop NATIVE apps for BB10.

I've tried swing trading RIMM and mis-gauged most of the swings. More than once I sold low and bought high...
I'm getting better at seeing where it's going with other stocks , but RIMM is to volatile for me at my current neophyte level -- so I think I'll restrict my swing plays to other stocks and just stay long on this oneTry BBSSH, an open source SSH and Telnet client for Blackberry devices.

I was gonna sell yesterday in that last half hour, but was hoping it wouldn't dip right away this morning, maybe it would ride a little higher before i sold and then buy back after it dipped a little. Instead rimm just went down and down and down. but its coming back up now. The fear is that it hits $15 and i sell but it takes off, then i got to buy it again at a higher price. I can't just hold long trying to fish the little bumps in the road. playing 2850 shares. every little bit of profit counts.

Congrats on the ride and pop up for those involved! Today's small drop is very healthy and what you would want and expect to see, its a very positive long term sign. Remember even most pros don't try to time the market, if its hard for them to do us piddling investors shouldn't try to do it either. Better to leave a few bucks on the table than to get eaten whole being too greedy. Market timing is almost always a loser. Enjoy the ride and your profits! Lock them in if you need the $$, let 'em ride if you don't

Haven't been checking to see if the trend has continued or not, but it was such a sure thing and it net me the days low entry point on earnings day. Unfortunately, it tanked the following day. lol

if the price keeps dropping, i may have to buy another $10,000 - $20,000 worth. stock up before the big launch.
now that the rumours of a Facebook phone are dead, how will this affect RIM stock?
i wonder if the rumour played a part in the end of RIM's rally?

I'm betting on an opening drop tomorrow, with a quick recovery and then a flat-to marginally higher close.
Let's be honest here, there is no 'investing' going on with this stock....it is pure gambling! (nothing wrong with that if you can afford to lose it!)
i am confused. i want to support rim and buy bb10 on day 1 but i really want to get keyboard versionBy bitek in forum General BlackBerry DiscussionReplies: 27Last Post: 11-15-2012, 05:41 PM
