FOMO ... or Something Else? Real Money Pro($)

The CBOE 10-day put/call has declined to below 0.90 -- a sign of extreme optimism. But in early summer the figure fell to close to 0.81. The 10-year U.S. note yield has moved 15 basis points lower from its 2.51% recent peak. A move below 2.3% might indicate that 2.5% was important resistance, and this could place pressure on bank stocks and selected financials, which slowed down a bit yesterday and underperformed. The five-week advance/decline intermediate momentum indicator has moved from oversold to overbought during the Trump rally.  On the other hand, we now have more than 420 new highs -- the highest reading in 23 months -- and a Dow Theory buy signal has been triggered with the transports following the industrials to new highs. Tactically, I took much of my index shorts off around midday as conviction was trumped -- pun intended -- by risk control and management. Fortunately, some of our core investment longs Radian Group (RDN) , DuPont (DD) , Campbell Soup (CPB) and JC Penney (JCP) (up 4% yesterday) moved to recent highs and a number of my trades (long iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond ETF (TLT) , short TLT puts, for example) panned out successfully, as have some important short positions been additive to performance, such as Apple (AAPL) , Starbucks (SBUX) , the autos (which I covered yesterday) and Coca-Cola (KO) (which has been reduced) , as well as some short-term rentals such as short Cisco (CSCO) , which was covered this week.
