So far, so good

We definitely got that "sell the close" institutional selling that I was looking for and then some.  This makes 6 out of the last 7 trading sessions that the key index tracking etf's (SPY & QQQ) were met with high volume selling into the close.  This is commonly seen during phases of institutional distribution, especially [...]

FSLR long target hit
