Takeaways and Observations Real Money Pro($)

On second thought I will take a whack at these crazy markets!

From the Street of Dreams Real Money Pro($)

Bank of America (BAC) upgraded Goldman Sachs (GS) to Buy today from Neutral previously.
The market truly has no memory from day to day. If the proximate cause of the rally today was the reversal in China's stock market last night, I join Jim "El Capitan" Cramer  in voicing some skepticism as to the rally's staying power. The S&P 500 Index (around 1965 now) has quickly rallied into the 1960-1990 range I suggested in today's opening missive. But I am not losing discipline and attempting to be more reactionary in moving from net long to market neutral -- an obvious next move for me. Bonds took a beating on little in the way of economic news. Banks, brokerages and FANG (ex Netflix (NFLX)) are leading the league in batting today. Speaking of banks, this week's Trade of the Week, Bank of America (BAC), is up a solid $0.50 from my inclusion late on Friday. Morgan Stanley (MS) and Goldman Sachs (GS) are hitting for the cycle, too, today (Friday's new longs and newest members of my Best Ideas List). By contrast, Twitter's (TWTR) shares are stinking up the joint. General Motors (GM) over Ford (F) today. (I will be adding to Ford on any further weakness).

Baby It's Cold Outside Real Money Pro($)

Market leadership was narrowing and breadth was deteriorating. Transports, cyclical and industrials had already entered a bear market. The price of numerous forward-economic-looking commodities (i.e.. copper and oil had plunged. Volatility had exploded in many asset classes (stocks, bonds, currencies and commodities). Signposts of slowing global economic growth were numerous, led by moderating growth in China, the current engine of worldwide growth. Corporate profit-growth expectations were steadily eroding. Credit spreads were widening. Easy U.S. monetary policy was losing its impact, and inertia on our leaders' part was the mainstay of fiscal policy. Malinvestment and overvaluations were sprouting up in many different asset classes. Despite all of these fundamental and technical faults, sentiment was unaffected and the "bull market in complacency" continued as valuations rose ever higher. The chasm between financial asset prices and the real economy widened.  Conflicting sentiment signals What about now? At inflection points like this, I like to take a careful look (as I did at and near stocks' top earlier this year) at investor sentiment as a possible gauge of future market movements. But I'm a bit fearful that the current downbeat sentiment indicators might not yet mark an important low. True, most sentiment indicators are back to 2011 levels, including: The 10-day CBOE put/call ratio, which is at a high 1.28 The AAII Investor Sentiment Survey (which asks players whether they're bullish or bearish). This index currently shows a large level of investor caution. The Investors Intelligence sentiment survey, which had a drop in bulls to 27.8 last week. The National Association of Active Investment Managers Exposure Index, which showed net exposure fell to 24% (the lowest level since 2011)  The fact that ind
The next FOMC meeting and the end of the quarter loom.
I wrote months ago that I had completed research on a number of large-cap stocks that I would find attractive at the right price.

My Latest Moves Real Money Pro($)

I'm adding to my long of the SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY) on strength off of the session lows and putting Goldman Sachs (GS) and Morgan Stanley (MS) on my Best Ideas list at prices paid this afternoon.

Buying Goldman, Morgan Stanley Real Money Pro($)

I've taken small starter positions this afternoon in Goldman Sachs (GS) at $179.40 and Morgan Stanley (MS) at $32.99.
We could see a 90% downside day today, which usually signals a bottom in sight, but we might need a new measure of capitulation this time around.
