With the  SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY)  recently up $1.40, I am adding to the  ProShares UltraShort S&P 500 ETF  (SDS) at $1…
Looking back, there's been a pronounced tendency to bounce.

I'm Shorter Than I Used to Be Real Money Pro($)

My short of the SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY) . My Short of Apple (AAPL)
What was most notable this week were several quick shifts and pressure on bonds.

Novice Trade: S&P 500 ETF Real Money Pro($)

S&P and VIX are both down today, but market may meander upward.
It takes kicks in the pants such as market selloffs to remind ourselves not to get complacent.

My Takeaways and Observations Real Money Pro($)

The U.S. dollar strengthened. The price of crude oil fell by $1.28 to $45.01 a barrel. Gold fell by $4 to $1,321 an ounce. I will stick with my expectation that we break $1,300-$1,310 support -- a guess based on obvious technicals. So my view on the asset class is semi useless! As I mentioned in my fertilizer post, agricultural commodities got hit again. Wheat down 7, corn down 9 and soybeans down 19. Lumber was off $2.70. Bonds fell in price and yields rallied. The 2s/10s spread rose to 94 basis points. Municipals fell, and I continue to avoid closed-end muni bond funds. (Look at closed-end muni fund BlackRock Municipal Target Term Trust (BTT) today -- there is no liquidity on the way out in these ETFs!). Junk bonds hit again, but Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) remains vulnerable. Avoid like syphilis. Banks foundered despite higher interest rates and a steepening yield curve, dispelling the notion at least for this week that financials thrive when rates rise. To me, it depends why rates are rising. Insurance stocks down, but only modestly. Hartford Financial Services (HIG) rallied off its lows, and I added this week. Brokerages taken to the woodshed. I remain short Goldman Sachs (GS) and Morgan Stanley (MS) (albeit small). Bond surrogates, like real estate investment trusts (such as the iShares Dow Jones US Real Estate ETF (IYR) on my Best Ideas List) got clocked. Retail was on discount with market leader Home Depot (HD) again a downside feature. Autos and energy stocks weaker. Ag equipment lower on poor August dealer stats at Deere (DE) . I should be adding to my Caterpillar (CAT) short. Staples fell. Coca-Cola (KO) remains my favorite conservative large-cap short. It's doing its job lately on the downside. (T)FANG hit. Netflix (NFLX) downgraded. Tesla (TSLA) , ever the controversial stock, lower. Alphabet (GOOG) and Amazon (AMZN) down double digits. In individual names, Twitter (TWTR) , Radian Group (RDN) and DuPont (DD) were subject to profit taking. Oaktree Capital (OAK) higher most of the day until the last hour. Trade of the Week CMC Metals (CMC) suffered. Apple (AAPL) prospered. I was extraordinarily active in my Diary today and we had numerous value-added propositions from our great contributors: Jim "El Capitan" Cramer is going crazy about something. Mark "Nashville Cats" Sebastian on junk bonds.  Tim "Not Judy or Phil" Collins on how to trade the S&P 500 Index. Tom Graff on the Fed's fault -- or is it? Divine Ms. M has some gripes about the rally.
I am now back to market neutral after covering about 40% of my SPDR S&P 500  (SPY) short (moving to small-sized from medium-sized) on…
