My Takeaways and Observations Real Money Pro($)

The U.S. dollar continues to weaken. Crude oil fell by $1.05, trading at $44.87. Nat gas was a dime lower. Gold rose by another $5 and is approaching $1,300. The precious metal did trade over $1,300 earlier in the day. Agricultural commodities: wheat -4.50, soybean +8.00, corn -3.75 and oats flat. Lumber -2.60. Bonds got taken to the woodshed. iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond ETF (TLT) was down about a beaner. The yield on the 10-year U.S. note added three basis points to 1.85% and the long bond climbed four basis points in yield to 2.70%. Municipals sold off, but closed-end municipal bond funds were mixed to higher. High yield sold off. However, Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) traded up a nickel and is approaching $14. Banks prospered, led by JPMorgan Chase (JPM). Brokerages were strong -- Morgan Stanley (MS) up 20 cents and Goldman Sachs (GS) $2.50. Life insurance responded well to higher rates and lower bond prices, with smart gains in Lincoln  National (LNC), MetLife (MET) and HIG. Energy stocks were mixed. Schlumberger (SLB) was a standout loser, though Exxon Mobil (XOM) was up 50 cents. Old media was mixed. IBM (IBM), despite Warren's endorsement, was slightly lower, while Microsoft (MSFT) was up 50 cents. Retail stocks rebounded, with short Nordstrom (JWN) recovering a portion of Friday's big loss. Media thrived. Disney (DIS) was up $1.10 and Comcast (CMCSA) 55 cents. Consumer staples did well, led by former long Procter & Gamble (PG). Biotech, the object of affection to value players this year, continued to be pressured. iShares Nasdaq Biotechnology (IBB) was down a couple. VRX recovered two-thirds of its nearly $4 loss today. My biotech basket continues to roll over. Autos were up small -- General Motors (GM) and Ford (F) a dime higher, each. Ag equipment was flat. (T)FANG recovering well, led by Amazon (AMZN), which seemingly got an endorsement from Warren Buffett over the weekend and was up $23. By contrast, Tesla (TSLA) was down by $2, though it was lower. NOSH had all four components to the good, including Starbucks (SBUX), a short. CRABBY's six components also were all higher. In terms of miscellaneous stocks, Apple (AAPL) continues to be rotten to the core, down 50 cents. Twitter (TWTR) was awful and Potash (POT) was not much better, though rival Monsanto (MON) was up. Radian Group (RDN) and Oaktree Capital Group (OAK) were flat, as was DuPont (DD) after a big upside move. Warren's fav (but my short!) Coca-Cola (KO) was up 30 cents. iShares China Large-Cap ETF (FXI), last week's Trade of the Week, was off a dime after a very weak Friday. Here is some good stuff on Real Money Pro today: Jim "El Capitan" Cramer on the U.S. dollar.   Robert "Not Rita" Moreno on the dreaded Coppock Curve!  Bret "Meet George" Jensen on four possible biotech targets.  The Count's take on the Berkshire Hathaway meeting.  RevShark on ... what is the market theme and on the lack of clear market leadership (a theme others like Jimmy and myself are concerned about)? 
Earnings are due today; it's not the momentum stock it once was.

Fangs Still Toothless? Real Money Pro($)

A week ago, in Fangs Look Toothless, I remarked that (T)FANG was beginning to show signs of breaking down. 

My Takeaways and Observations Real Money Pro($)

The Russell Index looks like machines/algos have targeted it -- in either direction! Weird action. The U.S. dollar declined. Crude fell by $1.03 to $42.70. Nat gas declined by seven cents. Gold rallied by $9.10 to $1,239. Agricultural commodities continued their price rise: wheat +3.50, corn +8.25, soybeans +13.50. Lumber +4.50. Bonds were relatively quiet, with little change in the 10- and 30-year bond yields. Municipals were unchanged. Closed-end municipal bond funds were down on the day -- I would be out of the space as rates might now be moving higher ... finally. I am considering going long ProShares Short 20+ Year Treasury (TBF), non-levered iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond ETF (TLT) short. High-yield bonds were lower. Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) was flat. Banks sold off, but not materially so. I think this trend could continue. Gun to my head, Financial Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLF) short will work for a trade now. Life insurance got schmeissed -- the object of my disaffection. Lincoln National (LNC) and MetLife (MET) down large fractions. Brokerages were weak. Morgan Stanley (MS) down 20 cents and Goldman Sachs (GS) down $1.95. Autos sold off.  Oil stocks suffered from the commodity's weakness. Schlumberger (SLB) was off $1.75 and Exxon Mobil (XOM) down 80 cents. (Good for me). Retail stocks were mixed. Media mixed. Comcast (CMCSA) was down a dime and Disney (DIS) was up 75 cents. Biotech down. iShares Nasdaq Biotechnology ETF (IBB) was down $2.40. Allergan (AGN) turned lower and Valeant (VRX) was off more than 2%. My biotech basket seems like it is rolling over. A lot of people buying this group on the basis of it being oversold; I wouldn't, but that's just me. Consumer staples were lower, led by a downgrade of Kimberly-Clark (KMB). Cyclicals are showing some tired action -- General Electric (GE), as an example. In miscellaneous stocks:  Potash (POT) reversed lower from early strength, Twitter (TWTR) is still for twits and Radian Group (RDN) was stable. Oaktree Capital Group (OAK), a fixture on my Best Ideas List, is holding well.  Caterpillar (CAT) was down $1.50 on a dumb upgrade (my view!) from Goldman Sachs. My fav large cap, DuPont (DD), is holding well after outsize gains this year. (T)FANG was mixed, with Netflix (NFLX) and Tesla (TSLA) -- my two shorts -- down $2.35 and $1.90, respectively. Apple (AAPL) continues weak -- down 60 cents -- after multiple lower lows. I plan to stay short this "value trap" into tomorrow afternoon's earnings report. NOSH nothing. CRABBY nothing, either. Here is some good stuff on RealMoneyPro today: Jim "El Capitan" Cramer (fresh off his Seder) on the Four Plagues. And Jim on the market's rotation.  Ed Ponsi "Scheme" on higher rates.   Tim Melvin, PE manager.  Daniel Dicker goes Mr. T on us.  Carolyn Boroden sees some resistance.
Also, charts for Tesla and Sirius XM.

My Takeaways and Observations Real Money Pro($)

The U.S. dollar strengthened a bit today. Consumer nondurables felt the pain of the currency rise and the KO miss.  I sold my long Procter & Gamble (PG) and took it off my Best Ideas List today.  PepsiCo (PEP), Kimberly-Clark (KMB) and KO all were weak. Crude oil rallied despite fundamental news that could have taken it lower. It was $1.43 to $42.51 in what looks like a massive short squeeze. Nat gas was flat. Gold was unchanged at $1,253. Agricultural commodities were through the roof following days of strengthening prices: wheat +12.50, corn +6.25, soybean +22.00 and oats +10.50. Food inflation lays ahead, Janet Yellen. Bonds were lower in price and higher in yield. iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond ETF (TLT) was down $1.05. The 10-year U.S. note yield rose by four basis points to 1.82% and the long bond by the same amount to 2.63%. Municipals flat-lined, but the sprint for yield resulted in more gains for closed-end municipal bond funds. High yield improved. iShares iBoxx High Yield Corporate Bond ETF (HYG) was up 27 cents and SPDR Barclays High Yield Bond ETF (JNK) was up 11 cents. Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) was three pennies to the good. Banks were tentative midday but are at their highs for the day now. Brokerages are up, with Morgan Stanley (MS) up 50 cents and Goldman Sachs (GS) up $2.90. Life insurance responded to the drop in bond prices as reinvestment opportunities are seen expanding, though rates remain very low. Energy stocks were higher with the commodity advance. Schlumberger (SLB) was up $1.80 and Exxon Mobil (XOM) up $1.13. Retail was mixed, with short Nordstrom (JWN) the strongest to the upside (up $1.45). Wal-Mart (WMT) faltered a bit. Prior long Macy's (M) was up 40 cents. Media was mixed. Disney (DIS) was up 70 cents but Comcast (CMCSA) was down 85 cents. Ag equipment, led by Deere (DE), which was up $2.25, was again strong. However, Caterpillar (CAT) slowed down after recent gains. Old tech was led to the upside by IBM (IBM), rising $2.65 from pressure earlier in the week. Biotech was unchanged as Allergan (AGN) rallied and so did spec Intrexon (XON). Nothing much in my former Biotech Basket to record. Autos continued ahead for the third day in a row after a Barron's cover story. Ford (F) was up a quarter and General Motors (GM) up 40 cents. (T)FANG was led by Tesla (TSLA) and Amazon (AMZN). Netflix (NFLX) had a dead-cat bounce. NOSH was uneventful, as was CRABBY. In individual stocks, Twitter (TWTR) warmed up by 55 cents and Potash (POT) poked above $18 after yesterday's strong gain. DuPont (DD) was hit by profit taking and was down 75 cents. Very little trading today as I marvel at the unrelenting advance. Here are some great columns from RealMoneyPro today: Ed Ponsi "Scheme" on how to play higher crude oil prices.  Carley Garner on livestock prices.  Tim Melvin on energy-exposed banks.  RevShark sees slim long pickings.  The Divine Ms. M on market rotat
"Seventeen years later, Boca Biff's real-life speculative binges have continued. Though he remains undaunted and unrepentant, under normal conditions one would think Boca Biff is likely at or near the end of his speculative life.

The S&P 500 is outperforming the Nasdaq Composite today, and their early morning divergence got me into weekly puts on the SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY) for the first time in long time.
Industry data seem to indicate weakness across the board with worse results ahead.
