The U.S. dollar strengthened today, but closed well off the day's (spike) high. Oil vey! Crude down $1.46 after trading higher in the early going. Gold up $9. I like and added to my growing SPDR Gold Trust ETF (GLD) long. I discussed my rationale in my Bloomberg interview. Ag commodities: wheat down $0.01, corn up $0.04, soybeans down $0.08 and oats up $0.07. Lumber down $2. Bonds got schmeissed early on with 9-basis-point rise in the 10-year but the gain declined to only 2 basis points by day's end. The yield on the 10-year closed at about 2.45% (up 2 basis points) and the long-bond yield rose by less than 1 basis point. Municipals were for sale, but closed-end muni-bond funds ripped. Not sure why ... maybe just a cessation of tax selling. Junk wasn't junky and Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) climbed by another $0.11. Banks were stronger, but off day's highs. If there was ever a consensus view of a sector, banks are it! Insurance was relatively quiet. I added to my Lincoln National (LNC) and Metlife (MET) shorts -- liking the reward vs. risk now. And I recently added to my Hartford Financial (HIG) long. Brokerages higher but well off highs, Goldman Sachs (GS) dramatically so. Old tech was quiet. Retail was lower but has begun to creep up late in the day. Autos had a nice showing in light of Trump Twitter storm. Biotech strong led by Celgene (CELG) , Gilead Sciences (GILD) and my fav, Allergan. Merck (MCK) shorts were squeezed (up $8), but speculative biotech did little. Fertilizers flatlined as ag commodities were mixed. Consumer staples were mixed as the currency got stronger. Another up day for Campbell Soup (CPB) . Ag equipment up, with both Deere (DE) and Caterpillar (CAT) up a beaner. Shorted more Caterpillar as I favor upside/downside opportunity now. (T)FANG was very strong most of the day but is weakening as the day progresses. Alphabet (GOOGL)  up nicely. In individual stocks Oaktree Capital (OAK)  gained (maybe tax selling is over), DuPont (DD) holding well, along with Radian (RDN) . Apple (AAPL) didn't participate in the market rise.  Here are some value-added contributions on our site today:   1. Welcome back Jimmy! Jim "El Capitan" Cramer on the hit and miss parade. 2.

My Takeaways and Observations Real Money Pro($)

The U.S. dollar is smoking hot. The price of crude is flat and now under $51. Gold down by another $32. Free fall/panic time but I can't just make a solid case for the yellow metal. Ag commodities: wheat down $0.09, corn down $0.06 soybeans up $0.07 and oats down $0.05. Lumber flat. Bonds continue the flight higher in yield and lower in price. The 10-year is up 7.5 basis points to 2.6% and the long bond is up 2 basis points. The 2s/10s spread expands by another 4 bps to 133 basis points. Municipals off small, and closed-end muni bond funds getting hit again. Stay away! (We are in the tax-selling season for this asset class and just like December 2013 I could see some opportunities but only if duress is more substantial). The junk bond market has a small bid, but Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) is down by two pennies. Banks up solidly, as are brokerages and insurance. Auto stocks up small. Energy stocks are flattish. Retails continues to be pressured, led by losses in Nike (NKE) and Nordstrom (JWN) . I added to JC Penney (JCP) . Again, my retail contacts and channel checks see a weak December, despite the cooler weather. I plan to add to my VanEck Vectors Retail ETF (RTH) short (which is now small). Old tech is doing nothing. I shorted more International Business Machines (IBM) today but still am small-sized. Consumer staples are up despite the strength of our currency. I picked at Campbell Soup (CPB) on weakness yesterday.

My Takeaways and Observations Real Money Pro($)

It is important to note that the euro briefly fell below $1.05, the lowest since March, 2015. If this trend continues, multi-national profits will be shattered. Though in line with expectations, the Fed move tanked bonds (moving the yield on the 10-year U.S. note up by 10 basis points to 2.58%). ( My Generational Bottom in Yields call is getting more powerful on a daily basis). Crude got hit badly, down $2 a barrel. Gold slammed again. And, stocks tanked -- with a classic buy-the rumor-sell-the-news event this afternoon.  Peter Boockvar on the Fed's move, here and

The U.S. dollar weakened. The price of crude oil ramped by $0.80 to $52.30 but that is well below the high of the day at about $54 a barrel. Gold inched up by a beaner, disappointing to the gold cabal, again. Ag commodities: wheat and corn flat, oats and soybeans up $0.06. Lumber unchanged. Bonds were higher after getting schmeissed in the morning. The yield on the 10-year and long bond were up by a basis point. The 10-year yield hit 2.51% and closed at 2.475%. Municipals got hit and so did the closed-end muni bond fund class. Junk bonds were unchanged though the Blackstone / GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) added three cents to $15.25. Banks traded lower, but only modestly. Insurance stocks were also down but off their lows. Long, Hartford Financial (HIG) , had a better look despite he insurance space lower. Brokers got hit by profit taking. Goldman Sachs (GS)  down $5. (Gary Cohn named head of National Economic Council.) Retail had a sale -- downside leadership from Nordstrom (JWN)  , Macy's (M) , Target (TGT) , Foot Locker (FL) , and Nike (NKE) . But Home Depot (HD) and Walmart (WMT) traded higher. I shorted RTH. Old tech was mixed. International Business Machines (IBM) downside, a beaner lower. Oil stocks better but well off their intra day highs following the steadily declining crude oil prices from the morning spike. Pharma better, Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) (pushed in Barron's) up by nearly $3. Biotech weakened, down 1%. Allergan (AGN) , Valeant Pharmaceuticals (VRX) (new low). Speculative biotech (Intrexon (XON) ,  FibroGen (FGEN) ,  Sage (SAGE) ,  Acadia Pharmaceuticals (ACAD) ,  etc.) schmeissed. Consumer non durables were mixed. New recent high for Campbell Soup 

My Takeaways and Observations Real Money Pro($)

The U.S. dollar weakened. The price of crude oil rallied for a second day in a row, rising $1.50 to almost $51. Gold flat, no bounce. Agricultural commodities: Wheat up $0.07, corn down $0.05, soybean unchanged, oats up $0.05. Lumber up $1. Bonds got schmeissed but traded well off the day's lows (as the 10-year yield touched 2.5%). The 10-year and long-bond yields rose by 9 basis points. The 2s/10s spread rose by another 5 basis points to 130 basis points. Muncipals were lower. Junk bonds got hit badly, despite the rise in crude oil. Blackstone / GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB)  rose $0.08. Banks were powerful to the upside. I reshorted at reasonably good prices in the afternoon, after covering my small rental shorts in pre-market trading earlier. Insurance stocks flew. Long Hartford Financial (HIG)  , which rose. Brokerages so strong -- Morgan Stanley (MS) and Goldman Sachs (GS) (up $7). Retail was strong led by Target (TGT) , Foot Locker (FL) , Nike (NKE) and JC Penney (JCP) (long). Autos were the "world's fair." I still have tag end short positions. I expect the upside move to get over-done short term, and I will reload on the short side. Energy stocks up, but small relative to the commodity. Old tech was clobbered. International Business Machines (IBM) , Intel (INTC) , Cisco (CSCO) (short and working nicely) and Microsoft (MSFT) got bashed along with the entire sector. Biotech was down 2%. Allergan (AGN) and Gilead Sciences (GILD) were weak. New lows Vertex Pharmaceuticals (VRX) . Spec weak again (Portula Pharmaceuticals (PTLA) , Sage (SAGE) , Intrexon (XON) , FibroGen (FGEN) , ACADIA Pharmaceuticals (ACAD)  . Big pharma hurtin' badly, once more. Merck (MRK) , Bristol-Myers Squibb (BMY) and Eli Lilly (LLY) being liquidated, much like tech. Media mixed message. Disney (DIS) lower. Ag equipment: Deere (DE) up large on an upgrade, though Caterpillar (CAT) still experiencing weak fundies. Consumer staples broadly lower. Campbell Soup (CPB) excelled on a relative basis, though. (T)FANG a source of funds. Tesla (TSLA) , Facebook (FB) , Amazon (AMZN) and Alphabet (GOOGL) a collective mess. In individual stocks: DuPont (DD) , new high. Radian (RDN) up another up 2%. Oaktree Capital (OAK) not so mighty. Apple hit. Here are some value-added contributions on the site today: 1. Jim "El Capitan" Cramer on " Not What Bulls Wanted to See ."  2.

You know that money coming in from the sidelines? It's pretty much gone.

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
