It is always very easy to look back on a stock and say what happened after the fact. It is very different to try and do it real time. Your three examples sum it up very well. As a matter of fact you left out the double and triple cups that never had a breakout!

Almost impossible to read the text and follow the "impossible to read" chart.

I am (finally) committed to learning CANSLIM. This article does a fine job of getting into the nitty gritty without being overly technical. Good prep before diving into the latest edition of William O'Neil's CANSLIM guidebook How to Make Money in Stocks.

Great article. Over the years I tried to study the cup with handle. This can be very challenging. Wish I read this article 30 years ago; it really gives the foot print to follow in analyzing a stock for a possible cup with handle.

This technique takes alot of time unless it is provided to you as a service. My wealth accumulation has occured due to concepts, patience and understanding greed and fear. IBD is a great resource of ideas and information like cup and handle. If you have the time it is a worthy task to perform.
