My Takeaways and Observations Real Money Pro($)

The U.S. dollar strengthened, a continuing headwind for companies that derive much from non-U.S. territories and regions. The price of crude oil +$3.85 on the OPEC agreement -- a feature of today's trading session. Gold down $15 to $1,175. Ag commodities: wheat down $0.06, corn down $0.01, soybeans down $0.10 (finally correcting the big advance) and oats up $0.01. Lumber up $1. Bonds got taken to the woodshed. The yield on the 10-year U.S. note rose by eight basis points and the long end climbed by a like amount. The 2s/10s spread widened by six bps to 128 basis points. Municipals got hit. Large losses, again in closed-end muni bond funds. Stay away!  High yield was modestly higher in price and lower in yield. Blackstone / GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB)  down $0.02 cents. Banks responded to rising rates and a steeper yield curve. I am still in my short rental in Citigroup (C) , JP Morgan Chase (JPM) and Bank of America (BAC) . Brokerages were the "world's fair" as the Mnuchin hire (former Goldman partner) as Treasury secretary kindled the animal spirits in Morgan Stanley (MS) and Goldman Sachs (GS) . Insurance companies prospered. Long Hartford Financial (HIG) recovered. Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.A) , lagged. Auto stocks were weak. See Peak Autos and disarray in auto lending markets.  Energy stocks exploded. Retail was conspicuously weaker with only Best Buy (BBY) on my screen, higher in share price. JC Penney (JCP) off only by a nickel. (I am bidding $9ish for JCP). Target (TGT) , Walmart (WMT) and Coach (COH) downside leaders. Old tech was noticeably weak - International Business Machines (IBM) , a downside feature. Consumer staples were weaker and my fav short in the sector, Coca-Cola (KO) was down 2% at a new y
The U.S. dollar weakened. Crude oil rose by $1.23 to $47.29 on conflicting OPEC reports. Gold climbed by about $12 per ounce to above $1,190 (it had been up $18 earlier). Agricultural commodities were mixed: Wheat down $0.02, corn flat, soybean up $0.12 (continuing its monster run in price) and oats down $0.06. Lumber up $3. Bonds were lower in yield and higher in price. The 10-year yield dropped by five basis points and the long bond by three basis points. The 2s/10s spread declined by three basis points as the yield curve flattened. Municipals flat-lined. Closed-end muni-bond funds recovered a bit. Junk bonds slightly higher. Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fun (BGB) was flat. Banks got clipped. But brokerages were slightly higher. Insurance profit-taking after a big run. Retail was on sale with Nordstrom (JWN) , Home Depot (HD) , Best Buy (BBY) , Target (TGT) and JC Penney (JCP) weak. Autos lower. According to J.D. Power, incentives are at near-record levels. Not good for profits/margins. Biotech down 1.5% (Celgene (CELG) and Gilead Sciences (GILD) off a beaner each), but spec biotech (e.g. Intrexon (XON) , Portola Pharmaceuticals (PTLA)  , SAGE (SAGE)  , Aerie Pharmaceuticals (AERI) ) weak. Big pharma continues to weaken, led by Merck (MRK)  , Bristol-Myers Squibb (BMY)  , Eli Lilly (LLY)

The Good, the Bad and the Ugly Real Money Pro($)

The market remains resistant (Rs over Ss and Ns). Brokerages, banks and insurance companies continue their league-leading strength. The Russell 2000 Index is up for the 15th consecutive day. Retail extends yesterday's strength. Nordstrom (JWN) Macy's (M) Best Buy (BBY) Target (TGT) Walmart (WMT) Foot Locker (FL) and JC Penney (
The market remains resistant. Brokerages and banks hang in strongly. The Russell Index is killing the shorts -- up ($0.75), again. Retail is experiencing another leg to the upside. JC Penney (JCP) , Home Depot (HD) , Lowe's (LOW) , Best Buy (BBY) , Target (TGT
The U.S. dollar is flat today. The price of crude oil rallied smartly -- by nearly $2/barrel to $47.60. The price of gold was listless, up a beaner. Agricultural commodities: wheat up $0.02, corn up $0.03, soybeans up $0.24 (!!), oats down $0.04. Lumber is flat. For a change, bonds are quiet. The yield on both the 10-year note and long bonds showed little price change. As mentioned earlier the 2w/10s narrowed by 3 basis points. Municipals were a bit lower. Junk bonds found a bid, however, and Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB)  was up $0.06. Banks continued to trade well, small gains on top of large gains over the last month. Insurance very strong, though brokerages had some modest profit taking. Retail was mixed -- Home Depot (HD) and Nordstrom (JWN) lower while Foot Locker (FL) and Best Buy (BBY) were higher. JC Penney (JCP)  weaker. Oil stocks were the world's fair -- with broad-based gains. Schlumberger (SLB) and Exxon Mobil (XOM) ++. Autos lackluster, still underperforming ... down to tagends in General Motors (GM) and Ford 
There will be stark winners and losers.
