My Takeaways and Observations Real Money Pro($)

The U.S. dollar strengthened. The price of oil continued to cave. Down by $0.72 to $44.55. Gold fell by another $19. Earlier in the day I reduced my size to small in the asset class. Ag commodities: wheat down $0.02, corn up $0.02, soybeans up $0.011, oats down $0.02. Lumber flat. Bonds got schmeissed, again. The yield on the 10-year U.S. note rose by 7 basis points to 2.14% and the long bond by 6 basis points to 2.94%. Municipals got whalopped. And junk was particularly junky -- let's watch this closely. The iShares iBoxx $ High Yid Corp Bond ETF (HYG)  down by nearly a beaner to $84.45 (now down $4 in the last two weeks). SPDR Barclays Capital High Yield Bnd ETF (JNK)  down $0.40. Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) (I would still avoid!) down by another $0.09 to $14.42. Banks were the world's fair ... again. Brokerages erupted further and so did the insurance sector. I reduced my life shorts recently and raised my Hartford Financial (HIG) long to very large. Autos were strong. (I went down to legends in my shorts a few days ago). Energy stocks did well despite a lower commodity price. Tech and consumer staples (my long Campbell Soup (CPB) was disappointing) got hit by trade concerns. Big pharma materially underperformed after yesterday's standout day. But biotech continued to rip led by Allergan (AGN) , Merck (MCK) and Celgene (CELG) . Spec biotech flourished (Sage (SAGE) , Intrexon (XON) and others). Old tech led higher by IBM (IBM) . Ag equipment continued to surge. I moved to tagends on my Caterpillar (CAT) short near $81 only a week ago! I discussed the (T)FANG underperformance throughout the day. Longs Radian (RDN) and DuPont (DD) at or near year highs. Apple (AAPL) got hit amid slowing demand stories. JC Penney (JCP) got out of its funk on a retail rally. Nordstrom reported an EPS and sales beat and is trading up $8 on the day! Here are some value added contributions on our site today: 1. Jim "El Capitan" Cramer on the compulsion to sell everything.  2. Gary "The Sun Will Come Out To" Morrow likes Apple here. I will explain why I am negative in a separate column tomorrow. 3. Tim "not Judy or Phil" Collins on a Disney (DIS) option strategy before earnings. (I went down to tagends in my short recently). 4. James Passeri on my enemy Valeant (VRX) . I did not like the 10Q issued today. 5. The Donald, Melania and Rev Shark are on a honeymoon.    Positions: Long HIG large, DD, RDN bonds, SDS, JCP, JWN, M, TGT Short SPY, NFLX small, GM small, F small, DIS small, SBUX small, CAT small, JCP puts, AAPL

The Message of the Market? Real Money Pro($)

I have argued that Donald Trump will make volatility and uncertainty great again. Just look at the intraday market moves since the election evening. Frankly, it's as violent as anything I have seen in my investment career -- both in an absolute sense and with regard to the violence of the rotation. Speaking of rotation, just look at the schmessing of the FANG names and in Apple (AAPL) today. This might be happening because almost all of the marginal money is hedge fund money. The fact that we are near yearend might also account for the violence of the rotation this week Bottom Line ...  Today I am asking myself ... Did the FANG names just peak the way iShares NASDAQ Biotechnology Index ETF (IBB) did in 2015 and Energy Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLE) did in 2014? The S&P 500 Index kept rising, but those two groups were done!
Apple (AAPL) is joining the (T)FANG lower today (down $3.50), and I am taking off a quarter of my Apple short as the reward/risk turns less fav…

A Couple Negative Tells

Novice Trade: Microsoft Real Money Pro($)

I would take today's dip as an excellent chance to go long.
If you believed Apple was attractive on Nov. 7 that shouldn't change on Nov. 9.
The unthinkable becomes thinkable and the thinkable has become reality.
The Fed, Mexico and repatriated profits are three big themes for the future.
