I like this SLV bullishly biased, long shooter call.
Even without North Korea, there's plenty of uncertainty coming from U.S. allies.
  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.

With last night's rip in bond prices and drops in yields, I have added to my iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond ETF  (TLT) short.   …

Novice Trade: SPDR Gold Shares Real Money Pro($)

I'm not a fan; the dollar will get stronger over the next year, not weaker.
With a little luck, perhaps the next move will sustain itself for more than a week.
It's been a relatively quiet day in the markets, so let's move to the abbreviated Monarch Notes form of "Takeaways," with "The Good, The Bad and The Ugly." The Good * The market bent yesterday but today it stabilized. (A good showing, all things being considered - but in no way decisive going forward). * Gold +$5/oz. * Crude oil +$0.50 and the rise is taking up some energy stocks. * The Russell returned to the spotlight. * Life insurance - particularly Lincoln National (LNC) (on an upgrade). Hartford Financial Services (HIG) gets a small lift. * Retail returned from the depths. The standouts - L Brands (LB) , Kohl's (
Stocks continue their drive higher. Rs (Russell) over Ss (S&P) and Qs (Nasdaq). I added to (SQQQ) and reestablished (SDS) today. Crude oil rose by +$0.90 to $50.39. Financials ((GS) , (JPM) , (AXP) ) continue as the "world's fair." (Wouldn't be surprised if there was some painting the tape ahead of tomorrow's quarter close.) Energy stocks, especially of a (COP) -kind (+$3.70). The Russell Index. Lumber +$6.50. (CMG) on an analyst upgrade to comps. Techs -- (NVDA) , (WDC) and (STX) . Transports -- led by (UNP) . The U.S. dollar is strong (taking down some consumer durables). New high, "DuLovely" DuPont (DD) .  The Bad Fixed income weakens. At 2:30 p.m. ET, at day's low -- and right at Tuesday's low of the day. (I added to (TBT) ) Gold dipped by nearly nine beaners to $1245/oz. (GLD) -$0.80. Fertilizers ((CF) -kind). (Ag commodities were mixed, with little changes across the set). (PRGO) new low. Big Pharma, and segments of biotech. The Ugly (LULU) is PUPU. (AKAM) .

Fears and Hopes Realized Real Money Pro($)

As I feared, SPDR Gold Shares (GLD) has reversed lower. In all likelihood, dovish comments by Fed Vice Chair Fischer was the catalyst for the drop today from the highs. And as I hoped, iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond ETF (TLT) is making new lows.
The moves in the price of gold have been fascinating in recent weeks. After a rally that started in late December came to an end, we saw gold plunge earlier this month. The yellow metal finally found support near $1,200 and now we're seeing a sharp bounce, back to $1,230. What the heck is going on?
