This market is thin, fickle ... and vulnerable.
There is positive price momentum and that feeds on itself regardless of what's in the headlines.
Market leaders that aren't leading and other things to think about.
First of the month and buyers queued up after a large sell imbalance at yesterday's close ($3.3 billion) depressed prices in the last 20 minutes of trading on Monday. Today, investors have rejoiced, again, in the bad high-frequency economic data. Net, net, little progress over the Monday-Tuesday period. I used the ramp to short more. The U.S. dollar was weaker and multinationals advanced after a few days of underperformance. Crude was flattish, and so were energy equities. Commodities rundown: natural gas flat, crude off 13 cents, gold down $1.50, silver off a penny, copper up two cents, wheat down 1%, corn unchanged (I had some comments about Agrium (AGU) this afternoon) and lumber is down by $3, or 1%.  Bonds responded positively to the manufacturing recession manifested in the very weak Purchasing Managers Index. Municipals were actually lower, but closed-end municipal bond funds advanced. High yield was, again, junky, but Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) continues to be accumulated (at 1:30 p.m. ET, volume was nearly 500,000). Banks prospered but the yield curve is flattening, and I reduced my bank longs. (Fast Money's Najarian mentioned some nonsense about Fifth Third (FITB) call activity; I would dismiss that).  LIfe insurance stocks held up well in the face of lower interest rates. Retailers are weak for the second day in a row, but begun to rally off their lows late in the day. Biotech was uninspiring in a strong broader market. Valeant Pharmaceuticals (VRX) got some wind behind it. NOSH -- Nike (NKE), O'Reilly (ORYL), Starbucks (SBUX) and Home Depot (HD) -- was mixed to lower. But (T)FANG -- Tesla (TSLA), Facebook (FB), Amazon (AMZN), Netflix (NFLX) and Google, now Alphabet (GOOGL) -- was the world's fair, led by 2% gains in four of the components. Old tech continued yesterday's strength, in large part with follow-through by Microsoft (MSFT) Though many are looking for a Santa Claus rally, I don't clearly see a catalyst to the upside and see more to the downside. I sold out of the balance of my closed-end mu
