To review Jinko’s stock, please take a look at the 1-year chart of JKS (JinkoSolar Holding Co, Ltd.) below with my added notations:

1-year chart of JKS (JinkoSolar Holding Co, Ltd.)

Since November of last year JKS has essentially been trading sideways while forming a common pattern known as a rectangle. A minimum of (2) successful tests of the support and (2) successful tests of the resistance will give you the pattern. JKS’ rectangle pattern has formed a $37.50 resistance (red) and a $25 support (blue). A break above $37.50 would also be a new 52-week high.

One other level to watch is the downtrending resistance (DR) on JKS. If the stock is heading lower, that trendline could be the stopping point. A break though that line should mean a run back up to $37.50

The Tale of the Tape: JKS is trading within a rectangle pattern. The possible long positions on the stock would be either on a pullback to $25, on a break through the DR, or on a breakout above $37.50. The ideal short opportunity would be at the DR, or on a break below $25.

Before making any trading decision, decide which side of the trade you believe gives you the highest probability of success. Do you prefer the short side of the market, long side, or do you want to be in the market at all? If you haven’t thought about it, review the overall indices themselves. For example, take a look at the S&P 500. Is it trending higher or lower? Has it recently broken through a key resistance or support level? Making these decisions ahead of time will help you decide which side of the trade you believe gives you the best opportunities.

No matter what your strategy or when you decide to enter, always remember to use protective stops and you’ll be around for the next trade. Capital preservation is always key!

Good luck!
