My Takeaways and Observations Real Money Pro($)

The U.S. dollar flat-lined. The price of crude oil increased by $2 a barrel to $46.67 on the OPEC chatter, previously mentioned. Gold fell by $4.60 to $1,325 ... not trading well. Agricultural commodities mostly lower: wheat was down $0.02, corn down $0.02, soybeans down $0.07 and oats down $0.01. Lumber up $1. Bonds were unchanged, with little movement in yields. The 10-year yield was up 1, and the long bond was flat. 2s/10s (yield curve) flat at 81 basis points. Municipals flat, but junk bond prices ripped after OPEC and closed much higher on the day. Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) rose $0.13 to nearly $15. I would sell this strength. Banks rallied despite the lousy publicity: Congressional uproar and California state's temporary cancellation of its business relationship with Wells Fargo. More in my opening missive. The canary in the coal mine, DB, rallied after weeks of weakness. My view? Neidermeyer, dead. Deutsch Bank (DB) dead.  REITs fell small, after broad gains in the last few days. I added to my iShares Dow Jones US Real Estate ETF (IYR) short. Insurance and brokerages rallied -- albeit modestly. Staying long HIG and short Morgan Stanley (MS) , Goldman Sachs (GS) , Metlife (MET) and Lincoln National (LNC) . Biotech under-performed. Allergan (AGN) , Gilead Sciences (
Banks, retailers and restaurants should be on fire, but instead they're burning down.
You cannot change the market by yourself, and you will just end up losing if you try.
Amazon's warehouse-building binge has helped make this possible.
Owning a couple of my new on-the-fly acronym looks smart.
Although I don't view the index charts as that bullish, I do like some individual stocks.
The end of the quarter is approaching and might impact action in individual names.
