My Takeaways and Observations Real Money Pro($)

The U.S. dollar weakened. The price of crude oil rose again by more than $1 to $44.53. Gold fell by $9 to $1,341. Agricultural commodities were volatile: wheat +6, corn +2, soybean -1 and oats -1. Lumber +1.50 after yesterday's sharp fall. Bonds reversed yesterday's losses, and I lost on my short bond trade/investment! Yields on the 10-year and long bond fell by five basis points. iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond ETF (TLT) gained more than a beaner. The 2s/10s spread flattened a bit to nearly 80 basis points. Municipals were well-bid, and closed-end muni funds were better. Junk bonds were up modestly. Banks had a second weak day in a row. Insurers and brokerages also were lower as yields fell. Energy stocks rallied. Auto stocks were lower. Ag equipment faded. Retail continued to sparkle, led by Nordstrom (JWN) (small short), Target (TGT) and Foot Locker (FL) (small short). Old tech was moribund. Biotech flat lined. Media was conspicuously lower. Staples were non-descript. Is (T)FANG getting tired? In individual stocks, my long fav DuPont (DD) was down nearly 2% on a European Union "in depth" review of the planned DuPont/Dow (DOW) merger, which could also jeopardize Bayer's quest for Monsanto (MON) . Sanford Bernstein is concerned. Here are some value-added contributions on our site today: Jim "El Capitan" Cramer, like Chauncey Gardiner, is watching. And he also opines on Twitter's "point of intent."  Mark "Summer in the City" Sebastain on volatility.  Eric Jackson on comparing Amazon AMZN (then) to Tesla TSLA (now). Strong analysis!  Guy Ortmann on valuations.  Tom Graff on retail sales and the Fed.  Enjoy the weekend!
