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.   
The stock has hit September lows, wiping out Monday's powerful upside reversal.
It is disappointing to see gold not gain a safe-haven bid on the weaker equity markets.
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) . I would not be long any closed-end municipal bond funds or junk-bond funds, e.g. (BGG)  (down $0.15). All bond surrogates. That includes real estate investment trusts like the iShares Dow Jones US Real Estate ETF (IYR) recently placed on Best Ideas List, consumer staples and utilities. Growth stocks like Amazon, (AMZN) , Netflix (NFLX)  and Tesla (TSLA) . Banks, despite the general drop in bond prices. Retail plays, including Home Depot (HD) , Nordstroms (JWN) , Dollar Tree (DLTR) and Dollar General (DG) . The price of crude oil and oil stocks like Exxon Mobil (XOM) and Schlumberger (SLB) . Fertilizer companies like Monsanto (MON) and Potash (POT) . Media stocks like Walt Disney (DIS) . Consumer-discretionary stocks, including Starbucks (SBUX) . Consumer staples such as Coca-Cola (KO) . Autos, including Ford (F) and General Motors (GM) . The S&P 500 (SPY) .

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.
