Both the parabolic sar and Person's Proprietary Signal moved to bear phase during Tuesday's trading, and macd turned bearish today. All of this amid analyst upgrades and articles about a rally in the Chinese solar sector.
The reversal, which came Tuesday as an 8.3% intraday slide, was accompanied by a volume spike more than double the prior day's. The stock has been trading sideways for about a year, with a level just below $7 as the range high and $4.25 or so as the range low.
Although the stock is trading above the 20-day simple moving average, the surprise-free move at this point would be for a continued oscillation to the downside, followed by a bounce up from below $4.50.
A bounce off of the 20-day moving average would invalidate that analysis.
