Thinking About Buying? Don't Real Money Pro($)

Narrow trading ranges that we're seeing are typical of tops and suggest this is a time to be selling.

My Takeaways and Observations Real Money Pro($)

The U.S. dollar again strengthened -- typically a market-unfriendly development. The price of crude oil rallied back from yesterday's loss, gaining 40 cents to over $45. Gold is down $15, breaking toward $1,300, where it broke out to the upside. Agricultural commodities again are under pressure: wheat -7, corn -6, soybean -19 and oats flat. Bonds are weaker. The yield on the 10-year note increased by two basis points to 1.58% and the long bond by three basis points to 2.30%. The 2s/10s spread at 86 basis points -- no change. Municipals are down small and closed end muni bond funds are mixed. Junk was better bid, but not materially so. Banks are up modestly. Same for brokerages (Morgan Stanley (MS) saw weak action off a big beat, same as Goldman Sachs (GS) yesterday) and insurance. Old tech was broadly higher, led by Microsoft (MSFT) . Retail is up. Autos are better. Energy, along with the commodities, are higher, with Schlumberger (SLB) a standout, up almost a beaner. Ag equipment is ignoring the schemissing of ag commodities prices and is flat to slightly lower. Media is weak on the heels of Disney (DIS) downgrade. Biotech is ramping, up three percent. Speculative biotech is stronger, rebounding from recent weakness. (T)FANG resumed leadership, with all components strong. My Trade of the Week, shorting Facebook (FB) , is not working out. In individual securities, Oaktree Capital Group (OAK) is an upside standout, rising more than 2.5%. Here are some value-added contributions on our site today: The market is expensive, but JIm "El Capitan" Cramer sees good signs.  Mark Sebastian on Twitter (TWTR) .  I have recently added. Carley Garner believes the VIX is cheap. I cant agree! Jonathan Heller on avoiding a value trap.  Rev Shark on momentum.

My Takeaways and Observations Real Money Pro($)

The dollar strengthened and is now at a four-month high; I find that few are looking at this. The price of crude oil fell by two bits to under $45 a barrel. Gold is up $3 to $1,332. Agricultural commodities got schmeissed: wheat -10, corn -13, soybean -35 and oats -2. This could weigh on fertilizers and ag equipment stocks. Lumber was down $3 following the housing starts numbers. Bonds rallied. The 10-year U.S. note yield fell by three basis points to 1.555% while the long bond yield dropped by the same basis points to 2.275%. I would add to my short with yield drops back to 1.5% and 2.2%, respectively. Municipals were better to buy. Closed-end muni bond funds continue to rebound. Yesterday the sector was very strong after days of weakness). Junk bonds are stronger. Nonetheless, Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) was lower by a few pennies. Banks were mixed, though Bank of America's (BAC) strong Monday carried through today. I am looking for a Financial Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLF) short entry point. Brokerages were lower despite the Goldman Sachs (GS) beat. Here is Jimmy Cramer's take on Goldman. Life insurance was mixed. I am adding aggressively to HIG (where there is smoke, there is fire?)  Staples saw little price movement. Biotech was weaker. Speculative Intrexon (XON) (a former holding and Biotech Basket member) and Ziopharm Oncology (ZIOP) getting clipped again. Ag equipment got hurt by the drop in commodities prices. Both Caterpillar (CAT) and Deere(DE) are lower. I would add to my CAT short above $80 a share. Retail was broadly lower. I have no longs in the space. My shorts Foot Locker (FL) and Nordstrom (JWN) were back down after strong gains on Monday. (T)FANG was up small, save for NFLX's big drop. Here are some value-added contributions from our great team: Tim "Not Judy or Phil" Collins in preparation of the Mr. Softee's (i.e., Microsoft's (MSFT) ) earnings report today.  "Meet" Bret Jensen on three reasons to expect a pullback.  RevShark on anticipation. I keep on way-way-waiting!  Roger Arnold on ways to play a recovery in first-time home buying.
It depends on the type of test and who's doing the grading.
