  Doug Kass frdgrouper1 • 2 hours ago Yes the character/complexion of the market may be in the process of changing. But in a world in which algos/machines control the daily action I will remain opportunistic and reactionary rather than dogmatic and anticipatory, The environment I see favors opportunistic traders. For those with a one year time frame - I would be medium sized short. But I am of the belief that I can trade actively, for a portion of my portfolio and capitalize on near term moves .... A number of reasons, many of which were cited in my bond piece. Above all I am trading opportunistically - trying to stay away from dogma and readjusting to events and prices. Some of Trump's moves, evidence that flight to safety may be abandoned over the short term, etc. I remain quite bearish over the intermediate term (3-1 downside/upside) but I have been dedicated to being more reactionary and less anticipatory - taking on positions (away from long/short investments) in trading rentals (leveraged ETFs, even put options as I did with SPY puts a few weeks ago) measured in days/weeks rather than weeks/months. It seems to be working ok.   I will have more on opportunistically trading tomorrow morning.   * The US Dollar weakened in today's trading session. * The price of crude oil fell by fifty cents to $52.70. * Gold rallied by +$2.70. (at $122.5 I would be a seller of (GLD) ). * Ag commodities got schmeissed (watch out fertilizers): wheat -8, corn -4.50, soybeans -1.50 and oats -4. * Lumber unchanged. * Interesting day in bonds - with a near five basis point move higher in yield from the day's lows. * On the day, yields +2-3 basis points. * The 2s/10s spread increased by two basis points to 105 basis points. * Junk rallied - I am laser focused on the spread to Treasuries. That spread is narrow relative to three months ago, suggesting some acceleration in domestic growth lies ahead. * Municipals were unchanged as were closed end muni bond fund prices. * Banks rallied, by only modestly so. * Brokerages were stronger - and as I suggested in my tactical piece on financials - could have room to run/ I plan to short, but will give the group a wider perch. * Insurance rallied. Hartford Financial Services (HIG) has a nice "look" to it. * Retail remains a mine field of disappointment. * Autos better on a Barrons Ford (F) push. Still very much a value trap to me. * Biotech lagged with Allergan (AGN) and Gillead (GILD) weak. Speculative biotech little price action. * Big pharma hurt by Incyte/Lilly (INCY) / (LLY) news. * Ag equipment up - both Deere (DE) and Caterpillar (CAT) up two bits. * Consumer staples well bid. Campbell Soup (CPB) better after Thursday's weakness. * Media is mixed with Disney (DIS) on the upside. * Fertilizers had a small bid despite a weakening agricultural commodities complex. * Rails higher, but fractionally so. * The optical space was flat today - OCLR has no bounce and I still am indifferent towards name which has been accumulated by some with an eye at a takeover (seems unlikely). * (T)FANG still an upside market feature - though Tesla (TSLA) down a deuce. Amazon (AMZN) is still a monster. * In individual names, Apple (AAPL) up two bits after recent weakness. Bounces in Twitter (TWTR) and RDN. Here are some value added contributions on our site today: 1. Jim "El Capitan" Cramer likes the data " over there."  2. "Meet" Bret Jensen sees fading momentum in the markets.  Based on my moves today I can obviously see a better market, over the near term, so stay tuned. 3. RevShark looks like he could go either way (though he doesn't trust the upside that much) - he is a reactionary type of guy! (Who I hope to learn from one day!!) Here  and here 4. Divine Ms M is more in the rally camp (where I reside).  5. Bobby Lang dislikes Goldman Sachs (GS)  .I closed out my GS short profitably 1-2 weeks ago and I can see a rally in the name, subject to tomorrow's EPS report. The stock remains on my Best Ideas List and I plan to short on a +5% move or so.    
So let's move to the abbreviated Monarch Notes form of "Takeaways," with "The Good, The Bad and The Ugly." The Good * Thus far, the "flight to safety" trades worked today - bonds, bond equivalent stocks, yen/dollar, gold. * The market brought in dip buyers -- though I am not sure it will last today. * Lumber +$10 - an outsized move. * Thus far, though down modestly, (T)FANG remains the place to be. * Seagate Technology (STX) and Western Digital (WDC) +. The Bad  
If you know what I mean!" --  Kass Diary, Consider this Yogiism!   With opening day yesterday and tonite's NCAA final (I like North Carolina in a high single digit, low double digit win)
Bonds rebounded from the recent weakness, with yields dropping (but only by a basis point). I am out of my (TBT) trade and maintaiing my (TLT) short investment. Wheat and corn higher. Old tech caught a bid -- (IBM) , (MSFT) and (INTC) . (FMC) , (AMD) , (VMC) , (MLM) and (PXD) . (AMZN) -liscious! Is (GILD) bottoming? (I am doing some research on this one now). (WMT) follow through from yesterday. (CMG) follow through from the last week (good call from Jim "El Capitan" Cramer). (CPB) catches a large, near one-million share buy from its majority shareholder -- on top of a $1.5 billion corporate repurchase program.  The Bad (JPM) a stickout to the downside in a mixed bank sector. (BMY) downside leader in Big Pharma. (GS) -- some profit taking after a +$10 rally from recent bottom. (I have no financial shorts, having covered all in Monday's early morning schmeissing, for profits). I am a short seller on strength, going forward.  The Ugly Soybeans -18. (XOM) down two beaners. (AN) -- Peak autos? (and OEMs, (GM) and (F) , have no "lift"). Optical weak --

Takeaways And Observations Real Money Pro($)

For the first time in six years the DJIA fell for the eighth consecutive day. That said the Nasdaq has risen in ten of the last thirteen trading sessions as Donald Trump may be making volatility and uncertainty great again. (For that divergence and other reasons, in "Its All Relative" I like the long [SPDR S&P 500 ETF Trust] (SPY) /short [PowerShares QQQ Trust, Series 1 (ETF)] (QQQ) pairs trade).

Health Care Putting in a Base Real Money Pro($)

Healthcare stocks had a heckuva four-year period of over-performance that ended in the summer of 2015. Since then the Health Care Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLV) (40% pharma and 15% biotech) has had a series of trading-range moves as sector prices lagged. Last year more than $18 billion was redeemed out of the healthcare ETFs, according to Morningstar. However there are some technical signposts that the two-year period of underperformance might be ending, as a basing seems likely. Look at the chart and note the recent higher high.
Why the name is sagging, and what it will take to spur the sector higher.
