    Strong breakout from the pennant (daily) and bullish flag (weekly). You can chase but those stops have to be kept on a very short leash.

    If your a fund that has not been invested, you are kind drawn to buy.

    The stock needs more time consolidating the multi-year move.

    Just keeps pushing. Maybe a pullback down back down to $70 to extend the consolidation process, form the right shoulder to a H&S formation to leave everyone second guessing what the stock would do next?

    Mass Effect Andromeda sucks. The first BioWare game that I ever refunded. Hope it doesn't hit stock too much.

    Did you get on that hate train?

    I played the trial and honestly, it was not as bad as all those reviewers said!

    Sure there was a bad facial animation once in a while, but overall the game experience was what I would expect from Mass Effect!

    No, it's actually the other way around, I was trying to ignore that "bad animation&ugly females" noise. I wanted to try the game myself before jumping to conclusions.

    The problem for me is that it's too... Inquisitiony? Lots of driving around, scanning, all those mundane activities, poor writing. I just wanted a linear action corridors like in the previous trilogy. And the game feels too clumsy overall, unpolished, buggy, I don't know. It's not something I would expect from BioWare.

    I'll probably grab a GOTY Edition when they release it. Hopefully, they'll get everything fixed by then.

    Also, the press thought it was fine. Users, however...

    Current price level is decent considering it's a company with decent growth opportunities. Less than 22 P/E.

    I agree, nice sideways move on the charts, no sellers really hitting it.
