    So funny. Just a week or two ago when the Dow hit 17000 and others record territory, all the articles coming out of the news were about how solid earnings could continue this rally upwards. Just a bath of optimism.

    Now it's all doom and gloom.

    I see it nearing the 50dma but the 200dma is a little above 32. I remember day trading that in the single digits in 2012 for $0.20-$0.30 a share gains. Scared the crap out of me though as solar was tough to get a handle on then.

    Think I'm going to pick up some European banks today, or wait until tomorrow?

    SPWR was one of the first stocks I ever bought (or rather, SPWRB before they merged share classes).

    Did not perform particularly well for me...looks like it is finally made it back above where I purchased it (no longer own it though)

    What am I missing? Major indexes off under 1% today. Did everyone think we'd hit new highs last week and that there would not be some selling off after the 4th? You guys all know way more than I do but surely someone else had to have sold some gains or did a little rebalancing last Thursday?

    We're not really talking about profit taking or rebalancing here. All the headlines are about major corrections taking place. The selling today was induced by concerns in Europe.

    I'm addressing the "sea of red" type talk. Looking at my ticker major indexes all down about .2% right now...

    Yeah, market has recovered somewhat over the morning. When the markets opened, everything was down .8 - 1%.

    Didn't you buy this when it IPO'ed and book a solid 25% or something? Or was it after its first earnings release?

    Sorry to see your losses.

    Also, no point in hiding your positions' values when you've left the share price and # of shares :p
