Person's Proprietary Signal (pps) turned bearish after a 2.5% decline on Fridday brought the price below the 20-day simple moving average. The macd has been in bear territory since July 27. The fast stochastic signaled bear on Friday. The parabolic sar alone remained in bull phase.
NLY, as a real estate investment trust with a 15.68% dividend yield, is sensitive to bond yields in the broader markets. With long-term treasury yields reaching levels not seen since the spring of 2009, it is no surprise that NLY is showing some shakiness.
The preceding, three-day bull phase resulted in a 0.1% decline, so it was pretty much of a wash.
On the Person's chart, NLY is trading below the midline but well above the lower pivot.
|pps||pps open||upper pivot||lower pivot|
|NLY $17.31||$17.46 aug16||$17.76 +2.6%||$17.16 -0.9%|
The signal leaves NLY well within the sideways range that has (pretty much) contained its price movements this summer. The high is $18.37, and the low is $16.84, but most of the time $18 and $17.25 have marked the bounds. NLY is trading well above the 200-day exponential moving average.
