My Takeaways and Observations Real Money Pro($)

The U.S. dollar weakened a tad. The price of crude oil rose by over $2 to $46.79. Gold fell by $22.70 to $1,333. The commodity broke out at $1,300, so support seems to be there. Agricultural commodities: wheat +6, corn +5, soybean +31 (!), oats flat. Lumber +3. Bonds schmeissed. iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond ETF (TLT) down $2.20. The yield on the 10-year rose by eight basis points to 1.51%. The long bond yield rose nine basis points to 2.23%. The 2s/10s rose to 84 basis points. Municipals were hit small, but closed-end funds got smashed. Several muni bond funds were down by more than 2%. High yield was stronger, despite the decline in the taxable fixed-income market. Banks continued higher. So did brokerages and insurance, led by Goldman Sachs (GS) , up $5, and Lincoln National (LNC) , up $1.85.. Retail was mixed, led by Nike (NKE) to the upside and Home Depot (HD) and Walmart (WMT) to the downside Biotech disappointed. iShares Nasdaq Biotechnology ETF (IBB) was up only $1.50. After the close Teva Pharmaceuticals (TEVA) raised guidance. Autos continued strong down the track. I covered most of my auto shorts in the Brexit period and I am close to re-shorting on the recent strength. Peak autos, I say, again. Ag equipment, which was sold on the rumor of a big crop, was bought on that news today. Staples did little. Old tech was broadly higher, with IBM (IBM) leading to the upside. Media was weak, with Disney (DIS) barely up and Comcast (CMCSA) (recently covered) lower. (T)FANG was disappointing. Telsa (TSLA) and Amazon (AMZN) were lower. Trade of the Week, short Netflix (NFLX) , was up a beaner. In individual stocks, DD was the world's fair (now up $5 from my incremental buy last week) as was Radian Group (RDN) , up another 4% and now up 18% since last week's inclusion as Trade of the Week. Oaktree Capital Group (OAK) was flat, and so was Hartford Financial Services Group (HIG) (disappointing, considering its insurance peers' strength). Starbucks (SBUX) , a short, hurt me (up $1.10). Another short, Apple (AAPL) , was up a large fraction. Here are some fine and value-added contributions from our peeps today: Jim "El Capitan" Cramer really likes Alcoa (AA) , and because of it I am doing more serious work on this name now.  Tim "Not Judy or Phil" Collins takes a non-consensus view on Delta Air Lines (DAL) ; I like this piece.  Tom Graff on what would it take for rates to rise.  Say it ain't so -- Ben "Goldfinger" Cross says gold is looking wobbly. Honest and flexible, Ben, in his approach to the precious commodity.  Tony Owusu takes a look at Amazon's Prime Day.   
The online retailing giant’s Prime Day is primed to be a huge hit.
U.S. futures are primed for a positive open as Amazon's 'Prime Day' gets underway and the SEC investigates Tesla.
Walmart is offering a competing sale, but it doesn't have the infrastructure or brand awareness to compete with Amazon.
Apple climbed despite being downgraded by Pacific Crest due to iPhone concerns.
