My Latest Trades Real Money Pro($)

Here's a look at trades that I've made so far this morning:
The Federal Open Market Committee meeting minutes were Much Ado about Nothing. Danielle "Double D" Dimartino Booth went "Don Henley" on us. Are we "Peak U.S. Consumer"? Click here and here for details. We're Peak Hedge Funds for sure. I sold half of our Trade of the Week -- puts on the PowerShares QQQ ETF (QQQ) -- for a profit. But I added to my long of the ProShares UltraShort S&P 50

Let's make the $118 August monthly puts of the PowerShares QQQ ETF (QQQ) our Trade of the Week.

A Thing About Machines Real Money Pro($)

We arrested oversold conditions early last week after two weeks of narrow and range-bound consolidation. This resulted in a "slingshot" rally that blossomed on Friday. As noted above, the Nasdaq has followed the S&P 500 into record territory, Still, I've got a small short on the PowerShares QQQ ETF (QQQ)  and a medium-sized one on the SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY) . The 10-year U.S. Treasury yield has bounced sharply after what for now looks like a successful test of its recent lows. The next technical target is 1.7% to 1.75% vs. this morning's roughly 1.595%. I remain in a sizable bond short. Financials followed bond yields higher Friday. Combine that with the Nasdaq Comp's record high and more than a third of the S&P 500 is in fine shape technically. (Technology accounts for about 20% of S&P 500, while financials make up another 15%.) Sentiment moved from negative to neutral during last week's rally. The 10-day CBOE put/call was at a bearish 0.83 just 10 days ago, but finished last week at a neutral 1.01. Emerging-market equities made a recovery high on Friday, while oil has bounced from deep-oversold conditions. That said, utilities and bond equivalents s

Today's Good, Bad and Ugly Real Money Pro($)

Market continues to run like the Energizer Bunny, completing a very strong month of July. Gold continues to shine following the weak second-quarter GDP print, which implies "lower for longer" and more cowbell from the world's central bankers. . Staples, excluding Coca-Cola (KO) , that are benefiting from a weak currency have revived today. The two pillars of technology -- Amazon (AMZN) and Alphabet (GOOGL) -- ring the register for investors. This is aiding PowerShares QQQ ETF's (QQQ) absolute and relative strength vis a vis the other indices. Herbalife (HLF) continues to rally after its agreement with authorities. Or maybe Ackman/Pershing Square is just getting squeezed by Carl Icahn! Schlumberger (SLB) , despite only a modest rise in crude oil today (after crude was down 17% for month of July) , is a standout. To many, Twitter (TWTR) is showing surprising strength --up 2% today -- following Thursday's drubbing. I added small on Thursday and in the after-hours on Wednesday. I like the upside/downside but I have no illusion that the near-term outlook is promising as management's heavy lifting lies ahead, and it will take time. A multi-month high for Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) despite a nearly 20% drop in the price of crude oil this month. The Bad Domestic growth is weak, with 2Q real GDP up 1.2% -- well short of expectations. Gilead Sciences (GILD) , a favorite value play in biotech, continues to fall, breaking $80 a share. Talking head "carpet sweepers" are nowhere to be seen on this one!. Life insurance stocks, plagued by the absence of investing alternatives in a low-rate setting, continue to weaken. Potash (POT) continues to sell off after weak top-line performance and poor forward guidance. I reviewed the quarter this morning. The Ugly My long Hartford Financial Services Group (HIG) , my project this weekend, is stinking up the joint after an earnings shortfall caused by catastrophe losses and a weak auto book.
