The U.S. dollar strengthened (as shareholders of Kimberly Clark (KMB) rudely found out today). The price of crude oil suffered but off of the day's lows. Gold fell by $3.40. No oomph for now in precious metals. Ag commodities weakened. Wheat down $0.011, corn down $0.375, soybeans up $0.775 and oats down $0.06. Lumber was flat. For the first day in the last four or five days, bonds were lower in price and higher in yield. Intermediate and long yields rose by two to three basis points. The 2s/10s spread rose by one basis point to nearly 92 basis points. Municipals got hit but closed end muni bond funds were slightly higher in price. Junk was flat. Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) diverged, up $0.08. Banks continued to wander higher and now sit at multi month highs. Insurance advanced. Long fav Hartford Financial (HIG) , +1%. But so were my shorts, Metlife (MET) and Lincoln National (LNC) , up a similar amount. Brokerages mixed. Diversified financial doing better -- led by long fav Oaktree Capital (OAK) . Old tech behaved like new tech -- iShares S&P NA Tech. Sec. Idx. Fd. ETF (IGM)  , Comcast (CSCO) , Microsoft (MSFT) markedly higher. As mentioned above, autos were in second gear today. Biotech continues to disappoint. Allergan (AGN) weaker and value traps Gilead Sciences (GILD) and Celgene (CELG) flat to down. Spec biotech got hit. Energy stocks flat-lined. Retail was on sale, again JC Penney (JCP) conspicuously weak (down $0.25). (T)FANG the world's fair Only Netflix (NFLX) flat. Here are some value added contributions on the site today: 1. Jim "El Capitan" Cramer says yuck to AT&T (T) - Time Warner (TWX) proposal. 2. Jeremy LaKosh chimes in on the merger. 3. Bret
There finally appears to be a growing recognition that the seasonally adjusted annual rate of car sales has peaked. Indeed, I believe my negative view of a peak in auto sales has now become consensus. The stocks (General Motors (GM) and Action Alerts PLUS holding Ford
Long-term investors could make some money at this low valuation, but it may take a while.
"Let's face it, though, there's something else at work in many sectors: too many companies. Zoe's Kitchen founder Cassimus told us 'there's a lot of competition, there's been tremendous amounts of small fast-casual start-ups, mom-and-pop restaurants,' and all of those restaurants can't survive because there simply aren't enough diners out there.
As the Fed is the monetary policymaker of the globe, this slowdown may pause Fed action.
This is what's behind the fall of such magnitude that we are seeing.

My Takeaways and Observations Real Money Pro($)

 The U.S. dollar strengthened. The price of crude oil rose by $0.64 to $50.47. Gold stunk up the joint, closing down by $15 to $1,253. Market Vectors Gold Miners ETF (GDX) sliced through the 200-day moving average. As I have stated, large gap downs in gold have usually taken two to three days to stabilize and begin recovering. Tomorrow could be the third day. I am still small SPDR Gold Trust ETF (GLD) as a portfolio hedge against central bank lunacy. I want to be there but the only question is price and entry level. I suspect we are close after the two-day panic (and loss of $60/oz). Agricultural commodities: wheat down $0.09, corn down $0.07, soybeans up $0.03 and oats up $0.04. Lumber up $2.50. Bonds continued to roll over on lower prices, higher yields. The 10-year U.S. note yield rose by three basis points and closed at 1.744%. The long bond yield moved similarly. I remain large short in the iShares Barclays 20+ Yr Treas.Bond ETF (TLT) (which was down $0.75). It is now $7 lower than when I introduced it to my Best Ideas List (short) and wrote about A Generational Bottom in yields in July. The 2s/10s spread steepened 1.5 basis points to 89 basis points (well off of the recent 81 basis point low). Municipals and junk bonds exhibited little price change despite the decline in Treasuries. Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB)  down $0.06. I would avoid. Banks continued strong, extending recent gains. Insurance better (led by MET). I am now scaling into shorts after being quite small after covering most weeks/months ago. Good reduce yesterday in Hartford Financial Services (HIG) , this week's Trade of the Week after a 5% rise from Monday.
You might be able to make a couple bucks trading this hollowed-out zombie.
In that category, the automaker doesn't have a whole lot going for it.
This is just one of the issues the debate dodged.
