The U.S. dollar strengthened. The price of crude oil continued to roll over: down $0.66 to $44.68. Ag commodities: wheat down $0.05, corn up $0.02, soybeans up $0.03 and oats down $0.04. Lumber up $5. Bonds got schmeissed (iShares Barclays 20+ Yr Treas.Bond ETF (TLT) down a beaner) after staging a two-day recovery. The 10-year U.S. Treasury rose by 2 basis points in yield while the long bond advanced by 4 basis points. The 2s/10s spread rose back to 100 bps. Municipals were flat to higher. Junk bond prices edged a bit higher as well. Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB)  up $0.02. Banks were mixed. Our Trade of the Week made a morning move higher -- and then dropped to new daily lows. I added on the short side. Financial Select Sector SPDR Fund (XLF) up by $0.08. Insurance was very strong after a Lincoln National (LNC) beat (I remain small short). Hartford Financial (HIG) lacked this time. Brokerages are surprisingly strong, led by Goldman Sachs (GS) . Old tech down - with Comcast (CSCO) , Microsoft (MSFT) and Intel (INTC) lower. Retail still stinking up the joint with Nordstrom (JWN) , Target (TGT) , Foot Locker (FL) et al. notably weaker. I added to a poorly performing JC Penney (JCP) today. Awful sentiment in biotech, pharma and generic -- for obvious reasons. Biotech was a biowreck, breaking support levels. Allergan (AGN)  , Valeant Pharmaceuticals (VRX)  , Merck (MCK) etc lower. Speculative biotech like Sage Therapeutics (SAGE)  , Portula Pharmaceuticals (PTLA) ,  Acadia Pharmaceuticals (ACAD) , Aerie Pharmaceut
Better trading is inevitable. We just have to be patient.
Its spending should strengthen the bull case on the company.
The longer we go without much progress, the more inclined players are to move to the sidelines.
What may look like a trading range misrepresents the reality of the market.
Earnings season isn't doing much for the market.
A series of questions denigrated an amazing company.
Fight the urge to get in while it's hot. Long-term owners should consider locking in gains.
The U.S. dollar strengthened (as shareholders of Kimberly Clark (KMB) rudely found out today). The price of crude oil suffered but off of the day's lows. Gold fell by $3.40. No oomph for now in precious metals. Ag commodities weakened. Wheat down $0.011, corn down $0.375, soybeans up $0.775 and oats down $0.06. Lumber was flat. For the first day in the last four or five days, bonds were lower in price and higher in yield. Intermediate and long yields rose by two to three basis points. The 2s/10s spread rose by one basis point to nearly 92 basis points. Municipals got hit but closed end muni bond funds were slightly higher in price. Junk was flat. Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) diverged, up $0.08. Banks continued to wander higher and now sit at multi month highs. Insurance advanced. Long fav Hartford Financial (HIG) , +1%. But so were my shorts, Metlife (MET) and Lincoln National (LNC) , up a similar amount. Brokerages mixed. Diversified financial doing better -- led by long fav Oaktree Capital (OAK) . Old tech behaved like new tech -- iShares S&P NA Tech. Sec. Idx. Fd. ETF (IGM)  , Comcast (CSCO) , Microsoft (MSFT) markedly higher. As mentioned above, autos were in second gear today. Biotech continues to disappoint. Allergan (AGN) weaker and value traps Gilead Sciences (GILD) and Celgene (CELG) flat to down. Spec biotech got hit. Energy stocks flat-lined. Retail was on sale, again JC Penney (JCP) conspicuously weak (down $0.25). (T)FANG the world's fair Only Netflix (NFLX) flat. Here are some value added contributions on the site today: 1. Jim "El Capitan" Cramer says yuck to AT&T (T) - Time Warner (TWX) proposal. 2. Jeremy LaKosh chimes in on the merger. 3. Bret
