My Takeaways and Observations Real Money Pro($)

A lot of intraday volatility for the second day in a row. Newsy and tough to navigate, so reduce VAR (value at risk). I am. The Russell was the worst major index performance-wise. I recently pressed my short in iShares Russell 2000 ETF (IWM). The U.S. dollar strengthened for the second day in a row, bolstered by Fed-speak yesterday. I personally expect no rate hikes this year, as mentioned in my 15 Surprises for 2016. Stay tuned. Crude oil close about flat after being much lower. Nat gas rose by three cents. Gold was down another $18.70 to $1,255. To me, as previously mentioned, $1,300 is big resistance. And long gold is a crowded trade in the hedgehog community. I am staying away. Not sure how precious metals fare if my "stagflation" expectations are realized. Agricultural commodities = schmeissburger! Wheat -12, corn -10.50, soybeans -5.25 and oats -4.50. Lumber has an outsize loss of nearly $10.00. Bonds rallied from Wednesday's shellacking. The 10-year dropped by three basis points to 1.85% and the long bond fell by five basis points to 2.64%. Again I wouldn't chase bank stocks in light of the flat yield curve and low absolute level of rates -- that trade is also getting crowded. Municipals were only slightly lower, but it was "the day the music died" for closed-end municipal bond funds. Some funds dropped by more than 2% today. High yield was sold. Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) got hit, like closed-end muni bond funds. Banks gave up about a third of yesterday's rise, but no real damage. Insurers got hit badly. My shorts Lincoln National (LNC) and MetLife (MET) were down about 70 cents each. I was a large buyer of HIG, which suffered about half the losses of the life companies. Brokerages got schmeissed. Morgan Stanley (MS) was down 60 cents and Goldman Sachs (GS) reversed yesterday's large gain by falling $4.80. Retail followed Walmart (WMT), which was up $6, higher.  My short, Nordstrom (JWN), was up 75 cents, though Target (TGT) continued its fall from Wednesday. Agricultural equipment moved lower on weak CAT data and lower ag commodities prices. Not a peep from the "bottom fishers" on this one. Rug sweepers, I call them. Old tech was weak despite a beaner rise in Cisco (CSCO). IBM (IBM) was off $2.50 and a feature to the downside. Staples were stronger, despite a strong currency. However, my short, Coca-Cola (KO), was lower on the day. Energy stocks continued to climb. My shorts were higher, with Schlumberger (SLB) up 90 cents and Exxon Mobil (XOM) up 60 cents. Media weakened. My principal short, Disney (DIS), continues to show a rollover in price. I know many on this site are keen on the shares; I am not. Biotech suffered. iShares Nasdaq Biotechnology ETF (IBB) was down $4. Valeant (VRX) was down again (Wells lowered numbers) and I would continue to avoid it. My unowned biotech basket was mixed to lower. I continue to view biotech as unattractive despite the magnitude of the drop from the 2015 high. Autos were lower, again; the group is a value trap to me and breaking down technically. Peak Autos. (T) FANG was mixed. The upside was Tesla (TSLA), $4 higher, and the downside was Alphabet (GOOGL), off $6.31. NOSH was higher on the day. Nike (NKE) rose $1 CRABBY was lower, save Alleghany (Y). In individual stocks, fertilizers led the upside today. Others of interest exhibited marginal price movement. Here are some good columns on Real Money Pro today: Jim "El Capitan" Cramer believes WMT has turned.  Tim "Not July or Phil" Collins on how to play Deere (DE).  Gary Morrow is a fan of Salesforce (CRM).  Daniel "Oil Vey" Dicker answers some questions from subscribers on five oil stocks.  Rev Shark on the Fed rate hike and economists' calls. (Rev, I never met a one-handed economist!)

Gold Has Given Back Some Gains Real Money Pro($)

There are causes for concern, but a selloff down to $1,250 should be a buying opportunity.
