Shares of solar stocks remain in pull back mode including WFR.  Today, the stock is down significantly again and has pulled all the way back to its 50dma after a big breakout a few weeks ago.  Soon, the stock may offer an outstanding 2nd chance opportunity.  As for JASO, it’s making a bearish move today, taking out critical support of the 200dma.  Should it close below that level, it could signal another leg down in the coming weeks.
