Do you understand how back of a risk/reward strategy that is? What was your stop on the downside .20%??? Seriously, it's just awful, the stock moves on AVERAGE 4% on any given day. A stock like RIMM should be bought or sold (using good timing) and you should be looking for about 5%-7.5% return short term, and 10%+ long term..

You keep trading like you are and you will be broke very quickly....

latest quotes have RIM targeted at $285/share
