My Takeaways and Observations Real Money Pro($)

The U.S. dollar weakened. The price of crude oil declined by four bits to $49.86. Gold flatlined. Ag commodities rallied: wheat up $0.02, corn up $0.01, soybeans up $0.16 and oats up $0.02. Lumber fell an outsized $9 and closed at a multi-week low. Peak housing? Bonds rallied (I covered a large portion of my bond short early in the day). Yields fell by two to three basis points The 10-year U.S. note yield fell below 1.77% -- though Tepper was quite bearish on bonds. The 2s/10s spread was flat at 95 basis points. Municipals were actually slightly higher in price, but that didn't keep closed-end municipal bond funds from getting schmeissed. the lack of liquidity in that asset class was a subject I wrote about midday. Look at BlackRock Inv. Quality Munic. Trust (BKN) , Invesco Pennsylvania Value Mncpl Incm Tr (VPV) , Etrion (ETX) , BlackRock Municipal Income Trust II (BLE) (more declines of 1.5% to 3%) after a similar drop on Friday! This is supposed to be a conservative asset class, but these funds have lost nearly their annual dividend yields in two days! Junk bonds were slightly weaker but, again, Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) had an outsized decline. Stay far from both closed end municipal bond funds and BGB. Banks were disappointing for the second day in a row. I have expressed my views here. Short JPMorgan Chase (JPM) , Citigroup (C) and Financial Select Sector SPDR Fund (XLF is my Trade of the Week -- down a dime from my cost on the day). See Jim's good columns on sector below. Surprising executive departure at Visa causes price weakness. Insurance was unchanged to lower but brokerages got hit after Friday's strength. Old tech was uneventful. IBM (IBM) down $1 after a slight beat. Retail was a conspicuous market blemish across the board weakness. Home Depot (HD) , Lowe's (LOW)  , Macy's (M) and Nordstrom (JWN) featured losers. Biotech after a very weak Friday. Valeant Pharmaceuticals Intl (VRX) (Ackman) new low, Allergan (AGN)  down $4, but Celgene (CELG)  up $1. Big pharma down small. Consumer staples weakened. Core short, Coca-Cola (KO) , a new low. Autos lower -- Ford at another low. Ag equipment down modestly. (T)FANG mixed. Netflix (NFLX) up big on a nice beat (I remain small short the name) Amazon (AMZN) and Tesla (TSLA) lower. Here are some value-added contributions on our site: 1. Jim "El Capitan" Cramer had several posts on banks.

But what's Tesla's October surprise on the 17th?

My Takeaways and Observations Real Money Pro($)

 The U.S. dollar strengthened. The price of crude oil rose by $0.64 to $50.47. Gold stunk up the joint, closing down by $15 to $1,253. Market Vectors Gold Miners ETF (GDX) sliced through the 200-day moving average. As I have stated, large gap downs in gold have usually taken two to three days to stabilize and begin recovering. Tomorrow could be the third day. I am still small SPDR Gold Trust ETF (GLD) as a portfolio hedge against central bank lunacy. I want to be there but the only question is price and entry level. I suspect we are close after the two-day panic (and loss of $60/oz). Agricultural commodities: wheat down $0.09, corn down $0.07, soybeans up $0.03 and oats up $0.04. Lumber up $2.50. Bonds continued to roll over on lower prices, higher yields. The 10-year U.S. note yield rose by three basis points and closed at 1.744%. The long bond yield moved similarly. I remain large short in the iShares Barclays 20+ Yr Treas.Bond ETF (TLT) (which was down $0.75). It is now $7 lower than when I introduced it to my Best Ideas List (short) and wrote about A Generational Bottom in yields in July. The 2s/10s spread steepened 1.5 basis points to 89 basis points (well off of the recent 81 basis point low). Municipals and junk bonds exhibited little price change despite the decline in Treasuries. Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB)  down $0.06. I would avoid. Banks continued strong, extending recent gains. Insurance better (led by MET). I am now scaling into shorts after being quite small after covering most weeks/months ago. Good reduce yesterday in Hartford Financial Services (HIG) , this week's Trade of the Week after a 5% rise from Monday.
