My Latest Moves Real Money Pro($)

I've covered my short rental of the SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY) amid today's rally, but I've also established a large out-of-the-money position in SPY puts with a March 16th expiration and a $185 strike price.

My Latest Take on the Market Real Money Pro($)

We're seeing a violent rotation today out of the TFANGs and into cyclicals like Caterpillar (CAT) and Freeport-McMoRan (FCX).
A quick play with a short timeframe.
-- Doug's Daily Diary, Nowhere Land? (Part Deux) (Feb. 3, 2016) As I've mentioned over the past few months, emotionless and opportunistic trading remains my mantra -- but that's not for everyone, and remains subject to your own risk profile. The S&P 500's swift, 35-handle drop yesterday morning got investors feeling panicky, but provided better risk-vs.-reward profiles for many stocks. I "called an audible" and bought shares across the board, adding to my longs of Bank of Ame
Sell cash-secured weekly puts as an alternative to holding SPY long.
The market is almost unplayable for most. A crude reversal likely was the catalyst for the turnaround, as quants ran on board the train from the morning lows. As I mentioned this morning, there is little edge or trend right now. If you trade, keep your value at risk (VAR) low because the large swings can produce big profit/loss changes on relatively small positions. Volatility "cubed" in a market dominated by machines and algos that don't look at income statements or balance sheets and have no concept of intrinsic value. It's in Nowhere Land, at least on a short term basis.  But I am of the view that the primary/intermediate trend is lower -- time to trade and be careful with investments. I still look for a low double-digit decline in the S&P 500 in 2016. Ss (S&P) over Ns (Nasdaq) and Rs flat (Russell). I traded actively today with some success, trying to be opportunistic and trying to embrace panic and euphoria. In other words, "Get It While You Can" is my mantra.  I ended the day market-neutral, shorting SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY) on a 40-handle move off the lows ($191.35).  My five largest longs and shorts.  The decline in the value of the U.S. dollar was a key feature of the trading day, though I heard little discussion in the business media. Crude oil reversed dramatically, closing up $2.52 a barrel. Nat gas was unchanged. Gold was up another $13.40 per ouce. Still working on a memo on precious metals. Agricultural commodities: wheat up three cents, corn down two cents, soybean nine cents lower  and oats four cents lower. After a lot of intraday movement, bonds were essentially unchanged, with the 10-year and 30-year up by one to three basis points in yield. iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond (TLT) was down more than a beaner. Municipals were well-bid and closed-end municipal bond funds were up by a few cents apiece. High yield was bid. iShares iBoxx $ High Yield Corporate Bond ETF (HYG) was up 38 cents and SPDR Barclays High Yield Bond ETF (JNK) was up 12 cents. Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) was seven cents to the good. Bank-selling got panicky early in the day, I added across the board. Comerica (CMA), JPMorgan Chase (JPM), Blackstone Group (BX) and Goldman Sachs (GS) ended the day higher after a pressured morning session. I observed that bank-centric sovereign debt funds might be responsible for the almost irrational selling of late. Here's my Chart of the Day on the aforementioned selling by sovereign wealth funds.  Staples responded well to a lower dollar Energy stocks were flat despite the ride in the resource. Biotech looks awful; they were flat on the day with Valeant Pharmaceuticals (VRX) rallying but Allergan (AGN) declining. Old tech didn't participate in the afternoon rally, but IBM (IBM) rose by $1.50. Alibaba (BABA) and Yahoo! (YHOO) were bad. Retail was mixed, with Macy's (M) a leader to the upside and Home Depot (HD) and Lowe's (LOW) downside leaders with large dollar drops today. I bought more GS (it rallied by $4 from today's purchase), Morgan Stanley (MS) (big recovery) and BX (nice reversal). (T)FANG is breaking down and rolling over -- a constant refrain of mine over the last four months. Tesla (TSLA) was down $10, Netflix (NFLX) down $1 and Alphabet (GOOGL) reversed most of its previous-day gain. Amazon (AMZN), which I featured today, continues to get schmeissed -- down $21. It is Bill Miller's largest holding (about 10% weighting). but I disagree, respectfully, with Bill. NOSH was broadly lower, led by Starbucks (SBUX) and O'Reilly Automotive (ORLY). CRABBY looked better, with only Allstate (ALL) and BAC lower. In individual stocks: Procter & Gamble (PG) and DuPont (DD) -- two new Best Ideas List entrants as longs -- were standouts to the upside. Potash (POT) reversed yesterday's loss. Life insurance stocks, including my shorts Lincoln National (LNC) and MetLife (MET0, were standouts to the downside (again). I hope you enjoyed
Markets are never totally logical, as today demonstrates.
While rapid-fire trading is for the very few, I will continue to maintain my transparency and explain my rationale for my trading moves.
