My Takeaways and Observations Real Money Pro($)

The U.S. dollar strengthened The price of crude oil rose by about +$0.15 after being lower in the morning. Gold was unchanged. Agricultural commodities: wheat up 2, corn up 3, soybean up 16 and oats up 2. Lumber up 1 Bonds were slightly higher. The 10-year and long bond yields dropped by a basis point. The 2s/10s spread contracted by one basis point -- down to 91 basis points. Municipals rallied while the junk bond market fell off in price. Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) up $0.13. Banks, insurance (I increased my Hartford Financial Services Group (HIG) holdings) and brokerages were slightly higher. Retail was mixed. I added to J C Penney (JCP) . Autos lower on dueling brokerage recommendations. Ag equipment bid better on higher ag commodity price. Energy stocks lower despite the crude oil price reversal. (I covered my energy shorts.) Old media flatlined. Biotech ripped on some large premium deals -- though  Allergan (
The setup seen today in these four stocks can be found among many other equities.
But there are still plenty of stocks that haven't recouped market losses.
The overall technical condition of the indices remains negative.

My Takeaways and Observations Real Money Pro($)

The U.S. dollar strengthened. The price of crude oil fell by $1.28 to $45.01 a barrel. Gold fell by $4 to $1,321 an ounce. I will stick with my expectation that we break $1,300-$1,310 support -- a guess based on obvious technicals. So my view on the asset class is semi useless! As I mentioned in my fertilizer post, agricultural commodities got hit again. Wheat down 7, corn down 9 and soybeans down 19. Lumber was off $2.70. Bonds fell in price and yields rallied. The 2s/10s spread rose to 94 basis points. Municipals fell, and I continue to avoid closed-end muni bond funds. (Look at closed-end muni fund BlackRock Municipal Target Term Trust (BTT) today -- there is no liquidity on the way out in these ETFs!). Junk bonds hit again, but Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) remains vulnerable. Avoid like syphilis. Banks foundered despite higher interest rates and a steepening yield curve, dispelling the notion at least for this week that financials thrive when rates rise. To me, it depends why rates are rising. Insurance stocks down, but only modestly. Hartford Financial Services (HIG) rallied off its lows, and I added this week. Brokerages taken to the woodshed. I remain short Goldman Sachs (GS) and Morgan Stanley (MS) (albeit small). Bond surrogates, like real estate investment trusts (such as the iShares Dow Jones US Real Estate ETF (IYR) on my Best Ideas List) got clocked. Retail was on discount with market leader Home Depot (HD) again a downside feature. Autos and energy stocks weaker. Ag equipment lower on poor August dealer stats at Deere (DE) . I should be adding to my Caterpillar (CAT) short. Staples fell. Coca-Cola (KO) remains my favorite conservative large-cap short. It's doing its job lately on the downside. (T)FANG hit. Netflix (NFLX) downgraded. Tesla (TSLA) , ever the controversial stock, lower. Alphabet (GOOG) and Amazon (AMZN) down double digits. In individual names, Twitter (TWTR) , Radian Group (RDN) and DuPont (DD) were subject to profit taking. Oaktree Capital (OAK) higher most of the day until the last hour. Trade of the Week CMC Metals (CMC) suffered. Apple (AAPL) prospered. I was extraordinarily active in my Diary today and we had numerous value-added propositions from our great contributors: Jim "El Capitan" Cramer is going crazy about something. Mark "Nashville Cats" Sebastian on junk bonds.  Tim "Not Judy or Phil" Collins on how to trade the S&P 500 Index. Tom Graff on the Fed's fault -- or is it? Divine Ms. M has some gripes about the rally.
Amazon could attract regulatory attention from the EU as it continues to expand, but tailwinds are stronger than any obstacles.
