My Takeaways and Observations Real Money Pro($)

The U.S. dollar weakened. The price of crude oil rose again by more than $1 to $44.53. Gold fell by $9 to $1,341. Agricultural commodities were volatile: wheat +6, corn +2, soybean -1 and oats -1. Lumber +1.50 after yesterday's sharp fall. Bonds reversed yesterday's losses, and I lost on my short bond trade/investment! Yields on the 10-year and long bond fell by five basis points. iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond ETF (TLT) gained more than a beaner. The 2s/10s spread flattened a bit to nearly 80 basis points. Municipals were well-bid, and closed-end muni funds were better. Junk bonds were up modestly. Banks had a second weak day in a row. Insurers and brokerages also were lower as yields fell. Energy stocks rallied. Auto stocks were lower. Ag equipment faded. Retail continued to sparkle, led by Nordstrom (JWN) (small short), Target (TGT) and Foot Locker (FL) (small short). Old tech was moribund. Biotech flat lined. Media was conspicuously lower. Staples were non-descript. Is (T)FANG getting tired? In individual stocks, my long fav DuPont (DD) was down nearly 2% on a European Union "in depth" review of the planned DuPont/Dow (DOW) merger, which could also jeopardize Bayer's quest for Monsanto (MON) . Sanford Bernstein is concerned. Here are some value-added contributions on our site today: Jim "El Capitan" Cramer, like Chauncey Gardiner, is watching. And he also opines on Twitter's "point of intent."  Mark "Summer in the City" Sebastain on volatility.  Eric Jackson on comparing Amazon AMZN (then) to Tesla TSLA (now). Strong analysis!  Guy Ortmann on valuations.  Tom Graff on retail sales and the Fed.  Enjoy the weekend!
It's all about stock picking rather than market timing.

Advanced Trade: SPDR S&P 500 Real Money Pro($)

SPY puts are a steal.
Don't focus too much on the indices; look for action in individual names.
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

With the SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY) now down $1.85 at about $215, I'm taking off my $217 SPY August monthly puts for a profit at about $3.10.
