Is there a tradable low on the horizon in oil?
Also, gold grinds higher as oil fades.
Also, utilities and crude should be on your radar.
And I took advantage of oil's bounce to lighten up on USO.
As might be expected, one is bullish and the other is bearish.
Traders don't seem too pleased with earnings right now.
And I am long USO, although I'm anything but bullish.
Plus, keeping a golden eye and a view to the E-Minis.
Use the signal from the options market and buy the USO February 9.50 calls.
Another day, another win for the bears. Soaring futures action succumbed to more selling in the afternoon. A late-day stick save prevented the 2016 streak of down days to continue. But the S&P was only up by one handle. As Grandma Koufax used to say, "Dougie, it could have been worse!" The U.S. dollar weakened, but dollar-sensitive exporters and multinationals prospered absolutely and relatively. Oil was down another $1.17 per barrel. Natural gas was flat. In oil equities, Exxon Mobil (XOM) gave up some of its recent gains; I sold my U.S. Oil Fund (USO) last week. Gold was down $3.70. I sold my SPDR Gold Shares (GLD) last week. Agricultural commodities were mixed, with wheat down a tad but corn up four cents and soybeans up two cents. Oats rose 10 cents and lumber was up 1%. Bonds were for sale; most maturities gained two basis points today in yield. Municipals were flat, closed-end municipal bond funds weakened, and high yield was junky; iShares iBoxx $ High Yield Corporate Bond ETF (HYG) was down 27 cents and SPDR Barclays High Yield Bond ETF (JNK) was down 16 cents.    Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) weakened ... again. It can't get out of its way despite the elevated yield and wide discount to net asset value. I added small today. Banks were mixed after better results at Bank of America (BAC). I will have an update and assessment (hint: there is no change in my view) on the BAC, Citigroup (C) and JPMorgan Chase (JPM) quarters in the next two days. Life insurance stocks (I am short) don't appear to have a bottom.  Retail was mixed , though two of my holdings -- Best Buy (BBY) and Bed Bath and Beyond (BBBY) -- turned south ... hard. Biotech was schmeissed again, with weakness in primary and secondary sector names. I am watching speculative Intrexon (XON) for an entry point. Old tech was taken to the woodshed, with IBM (IBM) faltering for the umpteenth time after the close. (I wasn't around, but the guidance from Intel (INTC) was horrible, perhaps laying a foundation of further weakness ahead for old tech.) Potash (POT) was weaker within a floundering fertilizer group. Twitter (TWTR) continues without a bid. The shares were probably lower because of a worldwide problem with the site. Oaktree Capital Group (OAK) excelled. (T)FANG was mixed, but the acronym has been weak of late, per my opener.  NOSH was tasty, led by O'Reilly Automotive (ORLY).  CRABBY was flattish. Some of my favored shorts on my Best Ideas List -- e.g., Disney (DIS), Comcast (CMCSA) and Apple (AAPL) -- continued to falter and had little or no rally in 'em.  I bought the weakness in SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY) this afternoon and added to Citigroup and Bank of America. I re-established a Hartford Financial Services Group (HIG) long against my MetLife (MET) and Lincoln Financial (LNC) shorts. I moved my net long exposure higher today. Here is why, as outlined here and here.
