good post ,Pete,, TSLA —may start a momo move up , it appears when there is a multi drawdown it can reach up to 80%—-hi beta stock , i believe if you believe in musk and his tela eco-system ———go long and a 25% -stop (wide berth)—then when reversal candle appears , go back in if you trade daily –optio#2—go long on a pullback ,, set it forget it with money you could lose ,, my humble opinion , Watch SUNE ——–this co. making deals in the solar arena —-it is a pick/shovel stock to solar industry ,, then FSLR -on my watch list ,hope this helps

Thanks Bob,

I’ve been stalking SUNE for a couple months now. I like the company and just waiting for another breakout to the upside.

Have a great weekend!
