The U.S. government has imposed anti-dumping duties of 31%-250% on Chinese solar imports, a source tells Bloomberg. The duties are the result of an investigation into whether Chinese firms, backed by government subsidies, have been selling modules below cost to drive out competition. First Solar (FSLR +7.2%) and SunPower (SPWR +13.6% - previous) are rallying on the news, while some (though not all) Chinese vendors are selling off: YGE -11.8%. HOKU -8.8%. LDK -3.9%.

    If this "starts" a trade war as some in the media are speculating, then no telling how low the markets go from here.

    Obama has nothing to do with it.
    republicans dropped subsidies dec. 31st 2011, check the facts.
    They also ended the Energy Star program.
    Republicans are in bed with big oil, they don't want solar.
    The only one pulling for solar was Obama.
