Please take a look at the chart of Blackberry Limited below with added notations:

Although Blackberry has had a rough year or so, the stock has actually recovered quite a bit since its December low of around $5.50. The important thing to notice is that the stock has now approached its trendline resistance that currently sits near $10.

The other level to watch would be the $9 support that the stock has been holding for the last month or so. Blackberry will have to break either the trendline resistance or the $9 support at some point and it is that break that should dictate the stock's next move.
