The IYR (Dow Jones U.S. Real Estate Index etf) is testing critical levels, if one is aggressive and believes in shorting a decent risk reward opportunity has presented itself. As you can see from the daily chart below the IYR is testing the $63.50-$64 level which has acted as support since the end of June until it finally broke that level on 11/8/2012. On the weekly chart it is testing a more significant level which is the underside of the ascending trendline that started in March 2009. The opportunity lies in a short trade against a closing move above the declining 50 day moving average ($64.25) and the 1st target will be a retest of the recent low $60.84. $DRV is 3x IYR inverse ETF. Currently 95% of the stocks within the IYR are trading above their 10 day moving average, and its up 5 out of the last 6 days.
