It is a more sanguine situation the broader we go. 
As noted earlier today, I am of the view that the U.S. dollar will continue to rise and jeopardize multinational corporate profits.
I give the win to the bears today (finally!), as Mr. Market (thus far) has made two failing attempts to rally. Bonds continued to drop in price and rise in yield. As I mentioned, in response to Kim G in the Comments section, I expect only a gradual rate rise in 2015 through 2017.The 10-year U.S. note, now at about 2.24%, has probably made most of its room to the upside in yield for the balance of the year. Municipals were flat to slightly lower as was high yield -- though Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) is up a penny on the day.   Closed-end municipal bond funds are basically unchanged on the day. As I wrote at the end of September, I don't expect any/much capital appreciation in the year ahead, but I see the funds returning their dividends (annualized appreciation of about 6%). I believe this return will outperform the U.S. stock market over the next 12 months. Crude ends the session at lows, down by almost $1.15 a barrel. I initiated shorts in Schlumberger (SLB) and Exxon Mobil (XOM), the latter of which went on my Best Ideas List yesterday. There will be more names as I move down the quality spectrum. The group got schmeissed today.  The U.S. dollar was a tad weaker; consumer nondurables -- especially of a Procter & Gamble (PG) kind -- continue to respond negatively to the overall recent trend in our currency (higher). CNBC Blather Index: This week I counted (when I wasn't under the influence of anesthesia) 49 bulls and three bears. Enough said --- a Bull Market in Complacency is back in force. Crickets from talking heads on Qualcomm (QCOM), down $10 today, and FireEye ( FEYE), down $7 today, who expressed confidence in the names and pro-forma earnings earlier in the week.  Remember: Fast talking and sound bites are not a reason to listen to these imbeciles who are three miles wide and an inch or two deep. Enough said. Banks continue their winning streak as the Pavlovian reaction to a rise in the 10-year U.S. note yield of 15 basis points in the last few weeks has now gotten a bit carried away. I am still long but down to tag ends and expect some serious profit-taking  in a market correction (5% to 10%).  In the life insurance sector, MetLife (MET) followed Hartford Financial Services Group (HIG) with weak results. MET recently was put back on my Best Ideas List (short) and I added to it and Lincoln National (LNC) short yesterday. Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.B), as a commentator mentioned in Columnist Conversation, appears to be rolling over Autos still skidding. Apple (AAPL), after a nice run, could have an appointment under $120 a share; I have been adding to my short position this week. The dive by Valeant (VRX) is weighing on Biowreck;  iShares Nasdaq Biotechnology (IBB) is down by nearly 2% on the day. I wrote critically about the company about a week ago.  Mark today. (T)FANG might have topped -- just gauge the cheerleading. Radian (RDN), though up 2% today, has gotten quite inexpensive; it finally is rallying a bit today. Thanks for the comments on my accounting analysis of Facebook (FB).  Critical analysis is always important to read. I did my shorting yesterday, and I w
And they'll end up eating the retailers.

Keep your eye on the big international stocks and the banks.
A down day, thus far. S&P near the day's low. SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY) at $206, or about 30 cents above the day's low. Fairly bad breadth on the NYSE. Qs (Nasdaq) are creaming Ss (S&P) who are creaming Rs (Russell). I am not sure of the last time the Nasdaq was higher on the day and the Russell was down by more than 1%. "Paradise Lost" in my Trade of the Week idea of iShares Russell 2000 ETF (IWM). Bonds bid well, both taxables and non-taxables. Financials weaker, especially of a life insurance kind as the meager reinvestment opportunities glow clearly in the earnings report of Hartford Financial Services Group (HIG). Lincoln National (LNC), MetLife (MET) and Prudential (PRU) wiping up the joint.  Banks are getting hit, and I expect after the nice run-up for this to continue. (T)FANG mixed, which is good performance relative to the recent price advance. Retail tagged, too. Autos lower on the Ford (f) disappointment relative to expectations. Energy under the spell of still-lower crude oil prices. Transports (trucking and airlines in particular) awful, seemingly portending slowing domestic economic growth that has been confirmed in a lot of high-frequency economic statistics. So does the United Parcel Service (UPS) miss foreshadow economic issues. Biowreck in a reasonable "dead cat bounce" mode today, up 2%. But Valeant Pharmaceuticals (VRX) -- the object of my disaffection in today's opening missive -- is down on the day.  Gold is disappointing. Some profit-taking consumer non-durables, led by Procter & Gamble (PG) and Kimberly-Clark (KMB), but nothing material. The Alibaba (BABA) and Yahoo! (YHOO) sell-offs -- down $5 and $1.50, respectively -- from premarket highs were meaningful. When does Uncle Warren say "What the heck?" -- my editor cleaned this up -- to IBM (IBM) and take his loss as he did in Exxon Mobil (XOM)? My guess is, never. Ferrari IPO stalled below offering price. GrubHub (GRUB) down by more than 25% despite large call buying this week. Thanks again to Jeff Saut at Raymond James for a nice shout-out.  Despite some modest weakness in the high-yield bond market, Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) trading up by 0.5% this afternoon. I only
