Shorting More SPY Real Money Pro($)

I'm adding to my short of the SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY) following this morning's earnings miss from Exxon Mobil (XOM) .
Earlier this week I compared the rising market to the Energizer Bunny. Today is no different.

My Takeaways and Observations Real Money Pro($)

The U.S. dollar faltered. The price of crude oil fell another $1 on top of days of losses. No correlation at all with stocks. Gold up $20 to $1,341. A two-week high. Agricultural commodities: wheat flat, corn +4, soybeans +13, oats -1. Lumber -2. Bonds ripped higher, with iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond ETF (TLT) up $1.90. The yield on the 10-year U.S. note dropped by six basis points to 1.50%. The long bond was 21%. As mentioned earlier the 2s/10s spread dropped to 78 basis points, within three basis points of the lowest spread since 2007. Municipals were well-bid. Closed-end muni bond funds gave up a bit despite the gain in taxables. Junk bonds were higher. Banks continued to rally. I shorted Financial Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLF) near day's end. An awful Deutsche Bank (DB) profit report sent the shares nearly 4% lower. Insurance stocks were hit on higher bond prices. Retail universally was lower after some tentative signs recently of technical improvement. Crude oil's decline hit energy stocks -- another group that appeared to have improved technically. Maybe not so much. Media was mixed. Staples were weak, led by lower guidance at KO. Biotech was up 3%, led by good news from Allergan (AGN) . Ag equipement was mixed. Deere (DE) was lower but my short Caterpillar (CAT) continues its strong climb. (T)FANG featured an earnings-inspired run from FB after the close. In individual names, Apple was higher, Twitter lower and Oaktree Capital Group (OAK) was down nearly 4% in reaction to earnings. which I will get to tonight. Here are some valuable contributions on our site today: Jim "El Capitan" Cramer on four stocks that upset the short community.  Tom Graff on the Fed.  Rev Shark invokes The Happenings. We'll see the Fed in September.  "Big" James Gentile on when good earnings really aren't. Ed Ponsi "Scheme" on the tale of two Apples. 
Stocks remain very unconcerned about rates, despite the odds of a fall increase slightly rising.
I've increased my stake in $217 SPY August monthly puts, which are this week's Trade of the Week.

Shorting More SPY Real Money Pro($)

The S&P 500 is up slightly as I write this. The CNNMoney Fear & Greed Index is at a bullish/complacent extreme. My fundamental concerns remain. Add it all up and I think the market's risk vs. reward c

My Takeaways and Observations Real Money Pro($)

The U.S. dollar strengthened. Crude oil dropped again, but only by two bits to $42.87. Gold was essentially unchanged. Agricultural commodities: wheat -13, corn -1.50, soybeans +7.50 and oats-2. Lumber +1.30. Bonds were better bid despite a weak five-year note auction. The yield on the 10-year U.S. note fell by one basis point and the long bond yield was flat. The 2s/10s spread was 81 basis points, up slightly day over day. Municipals bid were up small. Junk bonds were weaker, but Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) was up a dime to a new recent high of $14.85. This, despite a big divergence between lower oil prices and higher junk bond prices. Banks continued to rally despite weakness in European bank shares. Insurance stocks were well-bid, though my long Hartford Financial Services Group (HIG) , a recent star, was slightly lower. Brokerages flatlined after a large run-up. Retail was stronger, led by my short Nordstrom(JWN) , which was up nearly 3% on an upgrade. Energy stocks were weaker along with the lower commodities price. Biotech got hit, with Gilead Sciences (GILD) down more than 8%. Ag equipment , led by my short Caterpillar (CAT) , was up 5% after an earnings beat. CAT is now well into where I am considering additional shorts. Staples are conspicuously weak on the dollar's strength. My short Coca-Cola (KO) is getting hit. I am planning to add to this short. Autos are nothing -- again, which is disappointing after General Motors' GM earnings "blow out." (T)FANG was lower, but my short Netflix (NFLX) was higher based on a large insider purchase. In individual stock, DuPont (DD) is up on better earnings (more on this tomorrow). Starbucks (SBUX) was up, but well off its high, after a research upgrade at Goldman. Here are some value-added contributions on our site today: Jim "El Capitan" Cramer on tech tie-ups.  Mark Sebastian on Apple's technical setup. He is buying out-of-the-money calls. I remain short, and shorted more today. Gary Morrow is a running with Nike (NKE) . I remain short Foot Locker (FL) .  Tim "Not Judy or Phil" Collins goes tweet tweet.  Roger Arnold on the yield curve and insurance stocks.

Buying More SDS and SPY Puts Real Money Pro($)

I used the S&P 500's brief reverse into slightly positive territory to add to my short-friendly positioning.

Buying SDS and SPY Puts Real Money Pro($)

As I noted earlier this morning that I planned to do, I'm buying $217 August monthly puts of the SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY) on a scale lower at $2.35.
Continuing Oil Weakness. Crude is trading at $42.62 as I write this, down $0.71 this morning. U.S. Dollar Strength. The greenback's recent firmness is continuing this morning. A Flattening Yield Curve. A yield curve that's flattening out
