Large cap over small cap (S&Ps and Nasdaqs over Russells). If I was more confident, I would have made the iShares Russell 2000 (IWM) at $115.00 my "Trade of the Week" as a short. Bonds were well-bid, along with municipals. Junk was flat to slightly lower; Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) up 0.5%) Closed-end municipal bond funds flourished, with several -- including BlackRock Municipal Income Trust II (BLE) and Invesco Trust for Investment Grade Municipals (VGM) -- up by over 1%. Crude again noticeably weaker -- just can't rally. (Energy stocks giving it up today, led by Exxon Mobil (XOM), Schlumberger (SLB) and Transocean (RIG). But the big story was natural gas, trading at its lowest level in over three years and approaching $2.00 (down 10%). LIfe insurance and bank stocks weaker on lower bond yields. "Old tech" -- example, Microsoft (MSFT) -- giving back some of the recent gains. Autos retracing, led by General Motors (GM). Citigroup (C) got a downgrade. iShares Nasdaq Biotechnology (IBB) flat while Valeant Pharmaceuticals (VRX) trades "newsy" like a Yo Yo. (T)FANG is the "world's fair." The Ferrari IPO continues to stall ($1.40/share). Apple (AAPL) conspicuously weaker after a parts provider misses.   Retailers bounce like a "dead cat," with Market Vectors Retail ETF (RTH) up 0.5%; even Skechers (SKX) is picking up a bid. Target (TGT) and Home Depot (HD) are highlights.  I did NO trades today and I remain small

I'm reducing the gross size of my exposure by selling some on my longs on Yahoo! (YHOO), the SPDR Gold Shares ETF (GLD) and Twitter (TWTR).
I'm reducing my longs on money-center banks to small-sized positions from medium-sized ones given the sector's recent ramp-up and the continued drop in interest rates (and its dampening impact on net interest margins).
And this can have far-reaching implications; banks will feel the pain.
Bond prices are higher -- iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond (TLT) has made a day's high. Some early signs of weakness after a great run from the financials. Citigroup (C) is down 68 cents. Crude is lower. For that matter, a very volatile day in commodities. TFANG is looking tired for the second day in a row. Several large caps holding up averages. Meanwhile, numerous potholes, such as for Harley-Davidson (HOG) and others. Finally, see my comments on changing leadership in "Biotech's Biowreck
Price distortion is happening in the energy patch.
Goldman Sachs (GS) and Morgan Stanley (MS) have underscored capital markets' weakness with their recent earnings releases. I expect this will continue for several quarters. That's why I recently sold my GS and MS positions and took both stocks off of my Best Ideas list. The Federal Reserve's "Lower for Longer" interest-rate policy means investors will have to adjust the trajectory for banks' net interest income and margin growth a bit to the downside. If the growth rate for both the U.S. and global economies continues to  deteriorate, credit demand will be weaker. As for Citigroup, its solid results stemmed in a large part from lower legal costs, improved credit experience and strong expense control -- $200 million below forecast, a core part of my bank thesis. On the negative side, FICC and Asia were weaker than consensus expectations. Overall, Citi's operating results fell two cents shy of consensus after adjusting for asset sales, DVA and the reversal of some credit adjustments. Top-line results missed by a small $200 million (blame Asia). But Citigroup's key improvement -- and what moved the stock -- was continued profits ($31 million) at Citi Holdings, which C is slowly winding down. As I've written in the past, profits from this division "unlock" the value of Citigroup's large deferred-tax asset. Importantly, Citigroup said it plans to sell $30 billion of Citi Holdings' assets by year's end. These assets (6% of Citigroup's total assets) are now dow
