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.

A Good Day to be Short Real Money Pro($)

Why I sold Twitter on Friday. Why upside/downside targets are my investing religion.  Why it would be Goofy for Disney (DIS) to buy Twitter. Remember media companies, unlike Google and Salesforce, are bounded by EPS and cash flow. Disney has its own problems. I remain short.  A contrary view: Don't bank on the banks. As I mentioned (and added to my aforementioned thesis to avoid financials) to Jimmy Cramer in an email late this afternoon:   Jim, It is clear the Fed WANTS to raise in December. It is also clear that the rate of growth in domestic economy is slowing. If the Fed raises and the economy remains moribund, we risk a flatter curve rather than a steeper curve -- which is bad for banks and goes against the meme that a rate rise will help improve NIM and lead to improved valuations.   Fertilizer stocks trade like crap. Stay away. I am.   Damn, Chipotle Mexican Grill (CMG) ! ($20 in last three days) I was impatient and
Here are some high-profile and widely-held stocks whose charts should concern the bullish cabal:   Netflix (NFLX) Starbucks …
