Look for a rally in the EWU after a couple of days of softness.

My intermediate-term fair-market-value projection for the S&P 500 is about 1,900, or some 7.5% below the index's current read of roughly 2,056.

Here's how I intend to play the wild session ahead.

The SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY) -- our Trade of the Week -- which we shorted at $209+ a share. The PowerShares QQQ ETF (QQQ). The iShares Russell 2000 ETF (IWM). My other plans: I'll be covering my short of the iShares MSCI United Kingdom ETF (EWU). I might also take off my small short of the Financial Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLF), even though "lower-for-longer" interest rates could doom bank-industry earnings. That said, my XLF moves will depend on how much the financials drop today. I'm also taking SPY, QQQ, IWM and EWU off of my "Best Short Ideas" list, due to changes in those ETFs' risk-vs.-reward quotient this morning. Given the likely rise in volatility (not to mention the possible market chaos that we might see), I plan to use an opportunistic trading strategy today. I'll place both my long and short investments on the back burner and won't increase my long-term commitments. Instead, I plan to opportunistically trade on the long side (an area where I'm not currently well represented), but will be so only on a short-term trading basis for now. That said, it's conceivable that good longer-term long opportunities will arise over the next few weeks or so. The Bottom Line Uncertainty, risks and rewards will all abound today, but I want to err on the side of conservatism. I'll harvest some of my short gains, then approach the market in an opportunistic manner on both the long and short sides. I'll be back to market neutral by the time the opening bell rings today, and then I plan to trade aggressively. Most people other than the most facile and quick traders should probably just sit on the sidelines and watch today's acti

The U.S. dollar was quite strong today. Crude oil got whacked,down by nearly $2 to $46.20. Gold gained $2 at $1,290 but was well off day's highs. SPDR Gold Shares (GLD) was down $1.26. Agricultural commodities mostly were lower: wheat -4, corn -4, soybean -22(!) and oats flat. Lumber was up $4. Bonds continued a spirited rally, with iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond ETF (TLT) up 66 cents. The yield on the 10-year dropped by three basis points to 1.565% and the long bond by four basis points to 2.38%. The 2s/10s spread was down to 89 basis points for a new multiyear low. Municipals were well-bid and closed-end municipal bond funds were smartly higher. The high-yield market was stagnant, but Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) was down an outsize 10 cents. Banks were mixed. The ETF, which I covered in the morning, rose substantially from the lows and was up more than a nickel on the day. Brokerages had no bounce despite the recent declines. Insurance also was mixed. Berkshire (BRK.B) rose a beaner. Retail stocks were mixed. My short Foot Locker (FL), which deals in sneakers, was down by almost $1. Energy stocks were divided. Exxon Mobil (XOM) was up $1 but Schlumberger (SLB) was down half a buck. Biotech continued to lag, as I suggested a few weeks ago when I dumped the group holdings. Allergan (AGN) was weak, and Valeant (VRX) was at a new low. Autos were up marginally. Old tech was nothing. Media and ag equipment were mixed. Consumer staples were higher, not mindful of the dollar's strength. Though my sole short, Coca-Cola (KO), rose 30 cents. TFANG underperformed the broader market as Facebook (FB) continues to breakdown following Citron Research's negative research report earlier in the week. Trade of the Week Twitter (TWTR) gave up a dime after two good days. It's up 9% from Monday's purchase. (I added on today's weakness earlier.) In individual stocks, long fav DuPont (DD) rallied back a beaner, Oaktree Capital Group (OAK) was down small and Hartford Financial Services Group (HIG) finished with a nice gain of half a buck (I added today). In country ETFs, iShares MSCI United Kingdom (EWU) was up 0.5% and iShares China Large-Cap (FXI) was flat. In sector ETFs, Consumer Staples Select Sector SPDR (XLP) and Materials Select Sector SPDR (XLB) were up small. Here are some good contributions on our site today: Jim "El Capitan" Cramer on a showdown on Brexit and oil.   Eric Jackson on Viacom (VIAB).  Mike Norman is buying.  James Passeri on Valeant.  Tin "Not Phil or Judy" Collins on Dow Chemical (DOW).

The U.S. dollar weakened today. Crude oil dropped two bits to $48.85. Gold was up $10.50 to $1,287, making an assault back at the $1,300 resistance area. Agricultural commodities: wheat -3, corn +7, soybean flat and oats +3.50. Lumber -3.50. Bonds rallied for another day. iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond ETF (TLT) was up 40 cents. The yield on the 10-year U.S. note dropped by two basis points to a record low 1.61%. The long bond dropped by one basis point to 2.44%. The 2s/10s spread was flat at 91 basis points. Municipals rose and closed-end municipal bond funds continued to rise. High-yield bonds were hit. Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) fell by eight cents. Banks slipped and continue to show signs of rolling over. Financial Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLF) was down 0.5%. I have been adding to the short. Insurance was mixed, but my only long, Hartford Financial Services Group (HIG), climbed by 50 cents.   Brokerages continue to underperform. Retail was mixed to lower. My short, Nordstrom (JWN), was a standout to the downside, off $1.10. Old tech was lower, led by IBM (IBM). Autos also were exhibiting signs of rolling over. Biotech continues its recent weakness, with iShares Nasdaq Biotechnology ETF (IBB) down 1%. Allergan (AGN) was up almost $3, but most others were lower. I have no interest in bottom fishing and the technical recovery mentioned by some appears to be not so much. Agricultural equipment was lower led by short Caterpillar (CAT). Media was mixed, though Disney (DIS) was stronger. Staples were weaker despite a lower U.S. currency -- my fav large-cap short Coca-Cola (KO) was down 45 cents. Energy stocks were mixed, with Exxon Mobil (XOM) up and Schlumberger (SLB) down. TFANG was quiet, though Facebook (FB) was down $3 on a Citron Research negative report. In selected individual securities, Monsanto (MON) and The Mighty Oak -- aka Oaktree Capital Group (OAK) -- were noticeably weaker. Alibaba (BABA) broke bad. My long fav DuPont (DD) was down by nearly a beaner. Country shorts iShares China Large-Cap (FXI) and iShares MSCI United Kingdom (EWU) were lower, going the right way for the manner in which I am positioned. Sector shorts Consumer Staples Select Sector SPDR (XLP) and Material Select Sector SPDR (XLB) - also are going in the right direction. Here are some valuable contributions on our site today: Jim "El Capitan" Cramer on natural gas elbowing out coal.  Ben "Goldfinger" Cross on a possible breakout in the precious metal.  Tim Melvin on three bank stocks to avoid.  James Passeri on Valeant (VRX) and Walgreens (WBA).  Robert "Not Rita" Moreno on a Facebook short.
