Things to Ponder: Buy or Run? Real Money Pro($)

There is no training -- classroom or otherwise -- that can prepare for trading the last third of a move, whether it's the end of a bull market or the end of a bear market. There's typically no logic to it; irrationality reigns supreme, and no class can teach what to do during that brief, volatile reign. The only way to learn how to trade during that last, exquisite third of a move is to do it, or, more precisely, live it. -- Paul Tudor Jones

Shorting the Rip Real Money Pro($)

The futures market has exploded off the perception that the April jobs market is "Goldilocks" and that the Fed will wait to boost rates.
While the market is still trendless and has no memory from day to day, it seems to me that the process of making a major top in the S&P 500 represents the highest probability. Numerous economic and market outcomes remain -- being certain and self-confident is not a tact to take. In other words, be flexible in opinion (market view) and strategy, there are so many moving parts to today's investment mosaic. I strongly believe that there is no margin of safety left in the U.S. stock market. This means that the reward vs. risk is asymmetric. I recognize, however, that the market is statistically down but not out ... yet. (The S&P is less than 2% from all-time highs). It might be bent but it is still not broken, so reacting (not anticipating) is (still) the best strategy for now and explains why I am modestly net short. Nevertheless, in theory (and based on my continued interpretation of price action), I have moved from "shorting the rips and buying the dips" to "shorting the rips and not buying the dips" in a steady but judicious manner.  I expect the market's correction to occur in an irregular fashion, providing continued opportunities both on the long and short sides. For me, trading trumps investing over the next few months. I have moved into a slightly short position via defined SPDR S&P 500 (SPY) June puts and I plan to expand my short exposure on strength. The fixed-income market also feels like it is at an inflection point. Bonds appear to be transitioning from bull to bear, and the end of a three-decade bull market in bonds may be just about over as the bond vigilantes come out of a 25-year hibernation. Volatility in the stock and bond markets will probably be with us for some time. Bonds, in particular, exhibit, extreme volatility Thursday when the 10-year yield rose to 2.31% from 2.23% and went back to 2.15% this morning. Position accordingly (and reduce "VAR"). Techncials are shaky; new highs vs. new lows are deteriorating while the percentage of stocks above their 200-day moving averages is stinking up the joint. Speaking of shaky, individual stock blow-ups are accelerating. Yesterday it was Shake Shack (SHAK), which fell by more than $9 ... Cheeseburger, Cheeseburger! Cheeseburger! Janet Yellen warned us, again, and this time her warnings might be heeded. Fool me once shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me. Happy Mother's Day to all the moms. Finally:  "Imagine" (DJ Dougie Remix) Imagine there's no more Fed easing It's easy if you try Only sovere
