I would call today's feeble bounce as a win for the Bears. Though SPDR S&P 500 ETF Trust (SPY) and PowerShares QQQ (QQQ) are about where I covered yesterday, I have some regrets. Gold has spit the bit, as we used to say in the harness racing business, and I am glad I jettisoned SPDR Gold Trust (GLD) at around $116-$117 a while ago. Investors are seeking the "safe haven"" of biotech today -- iShares Nasdaq Biotechnology ETF (IBB) +$10! Call it Ag Rage! I am so angry about reversing my Deere (DE) long - it's on a tear. Mea culpa. As I observed (or hoped) -- the closed-end municipal bond fund sector is rebounding. Thanks for the nice emails on my closed-end muni bond update. But I wish they were better performers. I think I made the right move on the banks over the last week as I pared down some money center bank positions, though I still want to buy a 5% to 7% dip. Sticking with full regional bank weightings (medium size). The stock of Radian Group (RDN) is fearless. Twitter (TWTR) ain't bad, for a change. I am sticking with my view that the 10-year U.S. note yield peaked at 2.50% for the summer. I have a variant and negative view on housing; I will discuss in the morning. I will stick with my position and not trade much this week in light of the uncertainties revolving around Greece. Mexico just pulled out of Trump's Miss Universe contest. Kudos. I am leaving early to "deadhead" (seems appropriate this week!) my rose garden.
