The Good, the Bad and the Ugly Real Money Pro($)

Mr. Market managed to make gains on top of yesterday's ramp, the first two-day, back-to-back rise in two weeks. My sense is that participants are again becoming complacent. Commodities (ag, lumber, gold and crude oil) were a strong asset class. Autos (General Motors (GM) ), and retail (JC Penney (JCP) +3.5%, Coach (COH) , Macy's (M) ) -- two lagging groups -- started to turn higher today. Junk bonds climbe
The dreck of the first half will be the gems of year end.

Crude Makes Early Upward Move Real Money Pro($)

My only meaningful investment move over the last few days was covering my crude oil -- in the form of U.S. Oil Fund (USO) -- and Schlumberger (SLB) and Exxon Mobil (XOM) shorts yesterday.
I have covered my energy shorts for a gain the United States Oil Fund LP ETF (USO) , Schlumberger (SLB) and Exxon Mobil (XOM) ) on the intrad…

Oil Patch Update Real Money Pro($)

I recently have been adding to my trading shorts in the energy patch, namely U.S. Oil Fund (USO) , Schlumberger (SLB) and Exxon Mobil (XOM) .

Charts of the Day: Oil Vey! Real Money Pro($)

A feature of the last few days was the continued drop in the price of crude oil.

My Takeaways and Observations Real Money Pro($)

The U.S. dollar retreated. The price of crude oil got schmeissed for the second day in a row, down by $1.22 to $43.68. Gold was up$2.20. I still look for a technical break under current support of $1,300 to $1,310. Agricultural commodities: wheat +2, corn +2 and soybeans flat after this week's schmeissing. No change for lumber. Bonds rallied a bit after recent weakness. I wouldn't be surprised if the small rally continues, but I stand on my "generational bottom in yIelds" thesis, as 1.60% on the 10-year remains support now The 10-year U.S. note yield (1.70%) dropped by four basis points and the long bond by two basis points. The 2s/10s spread dropped by one basis points to 93 basis points. Municipals and junk bonds moved little. Banks continued to weaken as the Wells Fargo (WFC) news worsens. I covered my Financial Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLF) short yesterday. Insurance and brokerages showed little in either direction. REITS continue to trade poorly -- a fractional gain after being manhandled over the last week. iShares U.S. Real Estate ETF (IYR) has broken down. Energy stocks fell for the second day in a row -- good for my U.S. Oil Fund (USO) , Exxon Mobil (XOM) and Schlumberger (SLB) shorts. I'm sticking with them.  Biotech strengthened on the heels of Allergan (AGN) . A former member of my Biotech Basket, Aerie Pharmaceuticals (AERI) , is up nearly 64% after hours on positive drug news. Paradise lost! Autos stalled. Retail rallied small. Dead-cat bounces in Dollar Tree (DLTR) , Dollar General (DG) and Home Depot (HD) , me thinkst. Agricultural equipment was mixed. My short, Caterpillar (CAT) , rose. Deere (DE) "Prudence" fell. Entertainment was slightly lower. Popular Disney (DIS) continues to be a great short. Staples were lower. My core short, Coca-Cola (KO) , made a new 2016 low. (T)FANG traded as flat as my Grandma Koufax's potato pancakes. In individual stocks, Radian Group (RDN) and DuPont (DD) were catching their collective breath. Twitter was better on some new product news. Here are some great value-added contributions on our site today: Jim "El Capitan" Cramer says demand is down but not out.  Divine Ms M made another great call.  "Cousin" Gary Morrow doesn't like Ford's (F) technicals. And i don't like the company's fundamentals! Rev hates the macro monkeys.  Tim "Not Judy or Phil" Collins on a balanced view.
