Today's Trades and Orders Real Money Pro($)

Bonds are well bid this morning, with the iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond ETF (TLT) up $0.85 as I write this. I'm using the strength to further reduce my exposure to closed-end municipal-bond funds, which I've been selling since last week. I'm adding to my long of the Blackstone/GSO

A Not-So-Short List of Shorts Real Money Pro($)

In response to a number of subscriber emails, here is a partial list of my shorts:
I'm planning to initiate a new regular feature called "Sectors," in which I'll periodically offer my short-term price outlook for each of the market's major groups.
We found only 4 stocks in the Dow Transportation Average with positive looking charts.

Recapping Yesterday's Trades Real Money Pro($)

I added to shorts in the SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY) at $211.05, the PowerShares QQQ ETF (QQQ) at $115.25 and the iShares Russell 2000 ETF (IWM) at $118.30, moving them back to medium-sized from small-sized. I established new shorts in United Parcel Service (UPS) at $104, Wells Fargo (WFC) at $54.58, Schlumberger (SLB) at $80.30 and Exxon Mobil
Sector's bear market is rolling right along.
A down day, thus far. S&P near the day's low. SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY) at $206, or about 30 cents above the day's low. Fairly bad breadth on the NYSE. Qs (Nasdaq) are creaming Ss (S&P) who are creaming Rs (Russell). I am not sure of the last time the Nasdaq was higher on the day and the Russell was down by more than 1%. "Paradise Lost" in my Trade of the Week idea of iShares Russell 2000 ETF (IWM). Bonds bid well, both taxables and non-taxables. Financials weaker, especially of a life insurance kind as the meager reinvestment opportunities glow clearly in the earnings report of Hartford Financial Services Group (HIG). Lincoln National (LNC), MetLife (MET) and Prudential (PRU) wiping up the joint.  Banks are getting hit, and I expect after the nice run-up for this to continue. (T)FANG mixed, which is good performance relative to the recent price advance. Retail tagged, too. Autos lower on the Ford (f) disappointment relative to expectations. Energy under the spell of still-lower crude oil prices. Transports (trucking and airlines in particular) awful, seemingly portending slowing domestic economic growth that has been confirmed in a lot of high-frequency economic statistics. So does the United Parcel Service (UPS) miss foreshadow economic issues. Biowreck in a reasonable "dead cat bounce" mode today, up 2%. But Valeant Pharmaceuticals (VRX) -- the object of my disaffection in today's opening missive -- is down on the day.  Gold is disappointing. Some profit-taking consumer non-durables, led by Procter & Gamble (PG) and Kimberly-Clark (KMB), but nothing material. The Alibaba (BABA) and Yahoo! (YHOO) sell-offs -- down $5 and $1.50, respectively -- from premarket highs were meaningful. When does Uncle Warren say "What the heck?" -- my editor cleaned this up -- to IBM (IBM) and take his loss as he did in Exxon Mobil (XOM)? My guess is, never. Ferrari IPO stalled below offering price. GrubHub (GRUB) down by more than 25% despite large call buying this week. Thanks again to Jeff Saut at Raymond James for a nice shout-out.  Despite some modest weakness in the high-yield bond market, Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) trading up by 0.5% this afternoon. I only

Web shopping isn't helping boxmakers like International Paper much.
The stock has spent most of the year in repair mode and looks like it can deliver better returns ahead.
