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

Mr. Market managed to make gains on top of yesterday's ramp, the first two-day, back-to-back rise in two weeks. My sense is that participants are again becoming complacent. Commodities (ag, lumber, gold and crude oil) were a strong asset class. Autos (General Motors (GM) ), and retail (JC Penney (JCP) +3.5%, Coach (COH) , Macy's (M) ) -- two lagging groups -- started to turn higher today. Junk bonds climbe

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.

Today's Good, Bad and Ugly Real Money Pro($)

Mr. Market is still resilient. As happened two days ago, he faltered in the morning but later recovered. Retail stocks are stronger, led by Foot Locker (FL) , Lowe's (LOW) and Nike (NKE) . I covered my FL short earlier today, but 
Foot Locker shares were rising before the opening bell on solid second-quarter earnings.
Deere has finished in the red in 8 of its last 10 quarterly reports.
Long-term holders' patience has not been rewarded with these two stocks.

Today's Good, Bad and Ugly Real Money Pro($)

Biotech is dancing off of the stock screen, especially the more speculative merchandise. In large cap bio, Celgene (CELG) remains an upside standout. I don't have a dog in the hunt. Apple (AAPL) is still recovering from the earnings report date last week. I will give the stock some leeway before adding to my short. Walmart (WMT) is the world's fair. Amazon's (AMZN) streak is intact, as is Alphabet's (GOOGL) . This is contributing to continued strength of QQQs over SSSs. Twitter (TWTR) -- arguably the world's most hated stock these days -- continues to climb, albeit slowly. I have recently added post-earnings. My favorite large-cap, DuPont (DD) , holds up well and seems to have a mission to reach $70. I will have an update in the next few days. The Bad Bonds are the day's lows. I continue to see a generational bottom in yields, as noted a few weeks ago when the 10-year U.S. note yield breached 1.35%. Energy stocks are finally catching up to the drop in crude oil prices. I don't find en
