Reflections on a Nasty Day Real Money Pro($)

I have long thought that the disruptive impact of quant strategies had turned our markets upside down, to the extent that their models and algos chased priced and volatility.
Wells Fargo’s huge fine sends the stock slightly lower, while recalls affect two U.S. auto giants.

Things That Are Breaking Down Real Money Pro($)

The global bond market, including taxable-bond plays like the iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond ETF (TLT) , non-taxables like the iShares S&P National AMT-Free Municipal Bond Fund (MUB) and high-yield securities like the iShares iBoxx U.S. Dollar High Yield Corporate Bond ETF (HYG) . All bond surrogates. Growth stocks li
The company is most likely to continue smaller, tack-on acquisitions than the megadeals seen last year.
As a fundamental advocate of "Peak Autos," I've been looking for an entry point for a while to short more Ford (F) and General Motors (GM) -- and I think we've finally found one.

More Evidence of 'Peak Autos' Real Money Pro($)

Ford. U.S. sales fell 8.4% year over year to 214,482 units, although that beat expectations of a 9.8% drop. Retail sales totaled 168,543 vehicles for the month -- an 8% decrease. Fleet sales totaled 45,939 vehicles, down 10%. General Motors. The U.S. auto giant reported that its American sales dropped 5.2% to 256,429 units -- better than the 5.7% decline that analysts had expected. GM's retail sales have also risen 1% year to date, the best showing for any full-line automaker. Honda. American Honda reported a 3.8% sales decline to 149,571 units. Of particular note, Honda's Acura division saw U.S. sales fall 7% to 14,246 units. Nissan. The Japanese automaker said U.S. sales fell 6.5% to 124,638 units. However, sales of crossovers, trucks and SUVs soared 19% to set an August record. Toyota. The Japanese auto giant said U.S. sales fell 5% to 213,125 units, worse than the -2% expected.

My Takeaways and Observations Real Money Pro($)

The U.S. dollar weakened for the second day in a row. The price of crude oil dropped again, by $1.31 to $43.39. Gold up $4 after days of weakness. Unimpressed. Right above $1,300 to $1,315 support, which I feel could be breached to the downside by the machines. Bobby Lang has a different view in Comments Section -- he is bullish. Agricultural commodities rallying: wheat +4, soybean flat, corn +6, oats +5. Lumber -4. Bonds had more moves than a shortstop batting .110 today. Initially down big in price, up in yield -- reversed all the way to be slightly higher on the day. Now flat. Yields unchanged. Ten year at 1.57% after being 1.62% earlier. The 2s/10s spread also no change. Municipals are lower but oddly closed-end muni funds are better bid. High yield is junky for the second day in a row, but Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) is up two cents. I would be a seller of high yield and BGB. Banks are fading today on profit taking on weak economic data that suggest a September rate increase is lower in probability. I initiated a Financial Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLF) short and added to my Goldman Sachs (GS) and Morgan Stanley (MS) shorts (see my comments on passive versus active funds activity from yesterday that could lead to disappointing capital markets volume ahead). Insurance is weaker. Bidding for more Hartford Financial Services Group (HIG) . Auto stocks, up early, are trading lower. Bad action. Peak autos. Staying short General Motors (GM) and Ford (F) . Energy stocks fell with crude's slide. As mentioned earlier, I am seeing some price breakdowns. Media is slightly lower -- Disney (DIS) continues to appear to be rolling over. Staples are stable, though my Coca-Cola (KO) short is lower. (T)FANG inconsequential moves, save a $10 decline in Tesla (TSLA) (on my Best Ideas List, short) Here are some great value-added contributions on our site today: Jim "El Capitan" Cramer on 15 years later (can it be that long already?). R.I. P. Brown Bear  Robert "Not Rita" Moreno on selling junk bonds (for what it is worth, I agree).  Tesla talk from Ed Ponsi "Scheme." For what it is worth, part deux, I agree and TSLA is on my Best Ideas List as a short.  Tin "Not Judy or Phil " Collins sees two attractive ETFs.  Rev Shark on rough market waters. 

GM Stalls Out Real Money Pro($)

General Motors (GM) was nearly 2% higher earlier in the day, but are now down about 0.4%.
Still, an anemic rally saved the market from what at one point looked like a pretty darned nasty day.
Even so, a high level of complacency suggests an important high may be forming.
