Would you rather I made a joke about Apple or your mom?
Earnings are due today; it's not the momentum stock it once was.
I've been a net seller again as I protect some gains.
Sell/short Apple, don't hold Apple. 
Expectations are low for Apple, but can the earnings beat them?

My Takeaways and Observations Real Money Pro($)

The Russell Index looks like machines/algos have targeted it -- in either direction! Weird action. The U.S. dollar declined. Crude fell by $1.03 to $42.70. Nat gas declined by seven cents. Gold rallied by $9.10 to $1,239. Agricultural commodities continued their price rise: wheat +3.50, corn +8.25, soybeans +13.50. Lumber +4.50. Bonds were relatively quiet, with little change in the 10- and 30-year bond yields. Municipals were unchanged. Closed-end municipal bond funds were down on the day -- I would be out of the space as rates might now be moving higher ... finally. I am considering going long ProShares Short 20+ Year Treasury (TBF), non-levered iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond ETF (TLT) short. High-yield bonds were lower. Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) was flat. Banks sold off, but not materially so. I think this trend could continue. Gun to my head, Financial Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLF) short will work for a trade now. Life insurance got schmeissed -- the object of my disaffection. Lincoln National (LNC) and MetLife (MET) down large fractions. Brokerages were weak. Morgan Stanley (MS) down 20 cents and Goldman Sachs (GS) down $1.95. Autos sold off.  Oil stocks suffered from the commodity's weakness. Schlumberger (SLB) was off $1.75 and Exxon Mobil (XOM) down 80 cents. (Good for me). Retail stocks were mixed. Media mixed. Comcast (CMCSA) was down a dime and Disney (DIS) was up 75 cents. Biotech down. iShares Nasdaq Biotechnology ETF (IBB) was down $2.40. Allergan (AGN) turned lower and Valeant (VRX) was off more than 2%. My biotech basket seems like it is rolling over. A lot of people buying this group on the basis of it being oversold; I wouldn't, but that's just me. Consumer staples were lower, led by a downgrade of Kimberly-Clark (KMB). Cyclicals are showing some tired action -- General Electric (GE), as an example. In miscellaneous stocks:  Potash (POT) reversed lower from early strength, Twitter (TWTR) is still for twits and Radian Group (RDN) was stable. Oaktree Capital Group (OAK), a fixture on my Best Ideas List, is holding well.  Caterpillar (CAT) was down $1.50 on a dumb upgrade (my view!) from Goldman Sachs. My fav large cap, DuPont (DD), is holding well after outsize gains this year. (T)FANG was mixed, with Netflix (NFLX) and Tesla (TSLA) -- my two shorts -- down $2.35 and $1.90, respectively. Apple (AAPL) continues weak -- down 60 cents -- after multiple lower lows. I plan to stay short this "value trap" into tomorrow afternoon's earnings report. NOSH nothing. CRABBY nothing, either. Here is some good stuff on RealMoneyPro today: Jim "El Capitan" Cramer (fresh off his Seder) on the Four Plagues. And Jim on the market's rotation.  Ed Ponsi "Scheme" on higher rates.   Tim Melvin, PE manager.  Daniel Dicker goes Mr. T on us.  Carolyn Boroden sees some resistance.
It appears the market is biding its time before Wednesday's interest rate decision.
U.S. indices were facing pressure from oil headwinds as earnings season continues.
Facebook is expected to have another strong quarter, but Apple is likely to struggle.
