My Takeaways and Observations Real Money Pro($)

The U.S. dollar retreated. The price of crude oil got schmeissed for the second day in a row, down by $1.22 to $43.68. Gold was up$2.20. I still look for a technical break under current support of $1,300 to $1,310. Agricultural commodities: wheat +2, corn +2 and soybeans flat after this week's schmeissing. No change for lumber. Bonds rallied a bit after recent weakness. I wouldn't be surprised if the small rally continues, but I stand on my "generational bottom in yIelds" thesis, as 1.60% on the 10-year remains support now The 10-year U.S. note yield (1.70%) dropped by four basis points and the long bond by two basis points. The 2s/10s spread dropped by one basis points to 93 basis points. Municipals and junk bonds moved little. Banks continued to weaken as the Wells Fargo (WFC) news worsens. I covered my Financial Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLF) short yesterday. Insurance and brokerages showed little in either direction. REITS continue to trade poorly -- a fractional gain after being manhandled over the last week. iShares U.S. Real Estate ETF (IYR) has broken down. Energy stocks fell for the second day in a row -- good for my U.S. Oil Fund (USO) , Exxon Mobil (XOM) and Schlumberger (SLB) shorts. I'm sticking with them.  Biotech strengthened on the heels of Allergan (AGN) . A former member of my Biotech Basket, Aerie Pharmaceuticals (AERI) , is up nearly 64% after hours on positive drug news. Paradise lost! Autos stalled. Retail rallied small. Dead-cat bounces in Dollar Tree (DLTR) , Dollar General (DG) and Home Depot (HD) , me thinkst. Agricultural equipment was mixed. My short, Caterpillar (CAT) , rose. Deere (DE) "Prudence" fell. Entertainment was slightly lower. Popular Disney (DIS) continues to be a great short. Staples were lower. My core short, Coca-Cola (KO) , made a new 2016 low. (T)FANG traded as flat as my Grandma Koufax's potato pancakes. In individual stocks, Radian Group (RDN) and DuPont (DD) were catching their collective breath. Twitter was better on some new product news. Here are some great value-added contributions on our site today: Jim "El Capitan" Cramer says demand is down but not out.  Divine Ms M made another great call.  "Cousin" Gary Morrow doesn't like Ford's (F) technicals. And i don't like the company's fundamentals! Rev hates the macro monkeys.  Tim "Not Judy or Phil" Collins on a balanced view.   

My Takeaways and Observations Real Money Pro($)

The U.S. dollar strengthened. The price of crude oil fell by $1.28 to $45.01 a barrel. Gold fell by $4 to $1,321 an ounce. I will stick with my expectation that we break $1,300-$1,310 support -- a guess based on obvious technicals. So my view on the asset class is semi useless! As I mentioned in my fertilizer post, agricultural commodities got hit again. Wheat down 7, corn down 9 and soybeans down 19. Lumber was off $2.70. Bonds fell in price and yields rallied. The 2s/10s spread rose to 94 basis points. Municipals fell, and I continue to avoid closed-end muni bond funds. (Look at closed-end muni fund BlackRock Municipal Target Term Trust (BTT) today -- there is no liquidity on the way out in these ETFs!). Junk bonds hit again, but Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) remains vulnerable. Avoid like syphilis. Banks foundered despite higher interest rates and a steepening yield curve, dispelling the notion at least for this week that financials thrive when rates rise. To me, it depends why rates are rising. Insurance stocks down, but only modestly. Hartford Financial Services (HIG) rallied off its lows, and I added this week. Brokerages taken to the woodshed. I remain short Goldman Sachs (GS) and Morgan Stanley (MS) (albeit small). Bond surrogates, like real estate investment trusts (such as the iShares Dow Jones US Real Estate ETF (IYR) on my Best Ideas List) got clocked. Retail was on discount with market leader Home Depot (HD) again a downside feature. Autos and energy stocks weaker. Ag equipment lower on poor August dealer stats at Deere (DE) . I should be adding to my Caterpillar (CAT) short. Staples fell. Coca-Cola (KO) remains my favorite conservative large-cap short. It's doing its job lately on the downside. (T)FANG hit. Netflix (NFLX) downgraded. Tesla (TSLA) , ever the controversial stock, lower. Alphabet (GOOG) and Amazon (AMZN) down double digits. In individual names, Twitter (TWTR) , Radian Group (RDN) and DuPont (DD) were subject to profit taking. Oaktree Capital (OAK) higher most of the day until the last hour. Trade of the Week CMC Metals (CMC) suffered. Apple (AAPL) prospered. I was extraordinarily active in my Diary today and we had numerous value-added propositions from our great contributors: Jim "El Capitan" Cramer is going crazy about something. Mark "Nashville Cats" Sebastian on junk bonds.  Tim "Not Judy or Phil" Collins on how to trade the S&P 500 Index. Tom Graff on the Fed's fault -- or is it? Divine Ms. M has some gripes about the rally.

Thursday's Takeaways Real Money Pro($)

The US Dollar weakened. The price of crude oil gapped nearly $2 per barrel higher to $47.42. Stocks continued to decouple and a trend of disassociation between stocks and energy product prices might be in place. Gold down $7.70 after the big climb yesterday, closing at $1341. Agricultural commodities prices muted today. Wheat was up $3, corn gained $5, soybeans rose $1 and oats gained $3. Lumber flatlined. Bonds had a dramatic move, breaking out of their recent yield range. The yield curve steepened. (See comments above.) Municipals and junk bonds were for sale. Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) down a few pennies and closed-end muni bond funds hit with modest profit taking. Banks were slight higher. The media was a bit hyperbolic in their characterization of financial strength. I was actually disappointed given the weakness in bond prices. I remain short the Financial Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLF)  The same observation applies to brokerages and insurance. Auto stocks lower, led by Trade of the Week GM (GM) (short) to a weekly low and now nearly 2% to the good from Tuesday. Old tech weak, led by IBM (IBM) and Cisco (CSCO) . Energy stocks responded well to higher crude. I remain short Sclumberger (SLB) and ExxonMobil (XOM) , small. Biotech was uninspiring despite a better day at Allergan (AGN) (which made a promise to hold back drug prices). Retail was a downside feature, as I highlighted in my Diary. Ag equipment lower. (T)FANG looks a bit weary -- especially of a Tesla (TSLA) kind (brokerage downgrade) on my Best Ideas List. (-$4) TSLA needs to raise capital (a constant theme of mine). Helps to explain the brokerage community's love for the shares despite the inexplicable valuation. It's a fee-generator for investment bankers! Starbucks (SBUX) closed at day's low (off by more than a beaner) and Radian (RDN) at a new high (above $14, +40% in two months). Apple (AAPL) went sour (by almost $3) Hartford (HIG)  -- after an outsized rise yesterday -- got hit today. DuPont (DD) DuLlovely. Here are some value-added contributions on our site today: Jim "El Capitan" says stay calm on Apache. Ben Cross on the double-play combination of Draghi and Yellen  Robert "Not Rita" Moreno on TBT (Note: Be careful of leveraged ETFs like TBT -- poor tracking and premium decay) Sham Gad on CMG -- "it will take time."  He makes some very good points. James Passeri analyzes the possible collateral damage done by Tractor Supply, Home Depot and others.  
Bayer increases its latest offering to entice Monsanto, as regulators look closely at agribusiness mergers.
But even if Dow/DuPont merger fails, Dow is in good stead.

My Takeaways and Observations Real Money Pro($)

Oil is lower yet energy stocks -- including my shorts Exxon Mobil (XOM) and Schlumberger (SLB) -- are higher. Treasury yields are lower and the yield curve flattens, yet banks and financials are higher. The U.S. dollar is stronger yet consumer staples are higher. Fertilizer stocks are crap.  My Trade of the Week is
