    Congrats wallstreetedge on last week's win - definitely a good pick winning with a long bet on such a terrible week. I think I've come 2nd in this contest about 20 times now though! I need a hug!:s:

    I'll be looking for another short wild biotech though this week as they're working really well for me the last few weeks.

    thanks.. even though its a down week, it looks like next week will be flat or up. i would go for the commodities and mortgage..the fed is going to have to do everything they can to keep people in their homes or else with unemployment going up and defaults clashing at the same time.. were going to have a bad ratio of homeless people

    a problem with this economy is that unemployment is going up, price of goods are going up, food is at all time highs, healthcare going up, baby boomers are in retirement or going into retirement, people cant afford mortgages, and to top it off.. rent is sky rocketing to take advantage of everyone

    id look for giant news to keep the market and economy stimulated... tech still looks at too high of a premium so id still stay free

    democratic president next year and a strict rules on m&a... theres going to be some heavy consolidation this year in every industry.. look at small caps and micro caps to run vs. mid and large caps

    also i believe hedge fund redemption day is coming up soon so stay away from tech till next month... sure you might see a couple of runners but id rather play it safe

    DAR long please. I'm an independent and I see McCain taking it simply on track record. Opponents are too iffy. However,don't bet the farm on it. One never knows for sure till the chickens come back to roost !!!!

    NLY long please.

    Down as much as 35% on 17 times normal volume this past week for no apparent reason, other than the fact that it is a mortgage company.
    While it closed down for the day Friday, it still managed to close higher than where it opened, almost 11% up from it's low for the day.

    NLY does not seem to have the same exposure to the subprime slime that many others do, and in fact, is still showing strong earnings.

    I believe it was taken down this past week with all the other financials, but will soon rebound.

    Looking for at least 19% back to the high on Thursday and low on Monday resistance area, if not a 29% move back to fill the gap.
