My Takeaways and Observations Real Money Pro($)

The U.S. dollar was weaker today. Oil continues to breakdown. Down by $1.22 to $45.45 a barrel. Gold up $13.60, impressively breaking above $1,300 ($1,301). I have a medium-sized long in SPDR Gold Trust ETF (GLD) as a hedge against continued central bank lunacy. Ag commodities: wheat up $0.03, corn down $0.02, soybeans down $0.07 and oats up $0.06. Lumber is flat. Bonds continued a reversal from yesterday morning. The 10-year U.S. note yield is 1.797%. The 2s/10s spread dropped by two basis points to 97 basis points. Municipals were well bid and closed-end muni bond funds flourished. Junk continues junky (likely related to crude's crude price fall), something I have been warning about for several days. Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) down by $0.06 to $14.57. Banks rallied smartly off the lows but still off on the day. Deutsche Bank (DB) down for the sixth day in a row cant be evidence of financial stability. Talking heads love financials, I believe they are wrong, frankly. I see a "double top" in Financial Select Sector SPDR Fund (XLF) and have added to my shorts. Insurance was lower, though long fav Hartford Financial (HIG) was up a few pennies. Brokerages down, but only modestly so. Impressive, considering magnitude of recent rise. Energy stocks followed crude oil lower. Autos have peaked and General Motors (GM) and Ford (F) share prices are beginning to show it. Ford broke important support at $11.60 after exhibiting a disappointing decline of 12% year-over-year monthly shipments. Retail seemed to stabilize after recent schmeissing. A few more days could indicate that the share price declines have fully discounted the weak fundies. (Note: The weather is finally getting cooler!) Old tech was weak, led by IBM (IBM) . Consumer staples were stable/staple. Consumer discretionary was mixed. Starbucks (SBUX) , Disney (DIS) . Ag equipment weak, led by core short Caterpillar (CAT) , which I have been shorting on the move into the high $80s. Now $81. Loved by media talking heads, for no apparent reason, based on business trends (weak retail dealer data).  Biotech down 1.5%. Allergan (AGN)  down $11. Here is a good conversation/video with Jim and Jack. Some of speculative biotech annihilated (see Cempra down 60% today). Big Pharma continues lower. (T)FANG breaking down, and this is potentially important. Tesla (TSLA) (on Best Ideas, short) approaching another low, Amazon (AMZN) down $20, Alphabet (GOOGL) down $17. It's never a good signpost when market leadership is rolling over badly. Apple (AAPL) with a dead fruit bounce after yesterday's shellacking.  The Mighty Oak's (Oaktree Capital (OAK) ) leaves are falling off and, frankly, after digging I don't know why. I have a call into management. Radian (RDN) approaching my buy zone of $12 to $13. I will be patient (my cost basis is $10), but I do like this as an investment for several years. My fav large-cap long, DuPont (DD)  is Du Lovely, up in a down tape. Here are some value added contributions on our site today: 1. In " Chicago Beats Cleveland and I Don't Mean the World Series," Jim "El Capitan" Cramer scores big!   2. Christopher "Not the Designer"
Here's when the small-cap ETF shows a strong tendency to bounce.
Look for a relief bounce and then a continued move lower.
The downdraft may reflect investors and traders view that Trump will win.
