    The Market Week Ahead

    Earnings reports are in full swing this week. Dennis Lockhart is speaking this Monday, and Bernanke is speaking Tuesday and Wednesday. Jobless claims and leading homes sales reports are coming out on Thursday, and Consumer Sentiment is coming out on Friday.

    My Stock Pick This Week

    Is a REIT or real estate investment trust. Lots of pros and cons fundamentally to this company right now. An upward move in the stock is now presenting itself as a low-risk high-reward short-sell candidate possibly. With the recent up move since the first week of March at 12 to 14 dollars a share, the volume has been steadily declining. I’m betting the run is over with for awhile. In case it’s not, stick to the stop-loss to live and trade another day.

    Sell Short Annaly Capital Management. Ticker NLY

    Sell Entry: 16.32 to 15.82

    Stop-Loss: 16.50

    Take Profit Areas: 15.43 to 15.06, 12.38 to 11.94, 11.52 to 11.1
