    Conversely does this mean you would short FSLR if it broke the 20-day? The forward PE on this stock is just nuts but anyone shorting this beast in the past has been in a world of hurt. Your chart only goes back 3 months, maybe a break in the 20 would be a medium-term short?

    a heavy volume break below the 20 MA could constitute a short.
