The U.S. dollar weakened. Crude oil rose by nearly a beaner to $49.50. Nat gas climbed a penny. Another weak day for gold, down $5.50 to $1223; I wrote upon the subject yesterday and previously. Agricultural commodities: wheat +2, corn +7, soybeans +31(!), oats +1. Lumber +5. Bonds fell. iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond ETF (TLT) down half a beaner. The yield on the 10-year U.S. note was unchanged, with the yield at 1.86%. The long bond yield rose by two basis points to 2.67%. Municipals were flat and so were closed-end muni funds. The high-yield market was bid for. iShares iBoxx High Yield Corporate Bond ETF (HYG) up 15 cents and SPDR Barclays High Yield Bond ETF (JNK) up a nickel. Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) was three cents higher and appears to be challenging the recent highs. Banks were the standout group despite no normalization in the yield curve. Insurance was broadly higher. My long, Hartford Financial Services Group (HIG), lagged -- I added. Brokerage stocks on fire. Morgan Stanley (MS) up 40 cents and Goldman Sachs (GS) up $4. Retail rallied after being sold off for weeks. Shorts Nordstrom (JWN) was up 20 cents and Foot Locker (FL) up 75 cents. Energy stocks followed the rise in crude oil. Schlumberger (SLB) was up $2. Old tech was led by an outsize gain in IBM (IBM), up $3, but Intel (INTC), Microsoft (MSFT) and Cisco (CSCO) all were stronger. Media lagged. Comcast (CMCSA) and Disney (DIS) were up only modestly. Staples were higher, but not materially so. Nevertheless, my Consumer Staples Select Sector SPDR Fund (XLP) short (Trade of the Week) is stinking up the joint. Agricultural equipment was strong, with Deere (DE) up 80 cents and Caterpillar (CAT) up $1.30. (T)FANG looks like it is being rotated out of. NOSH was lower, save O'Reilly Automotive (ORLY). CRABBY was led by Citigroup (C) but hurt by Alleghany (Y). In individual stocks, Apple (AAPL) continues its forceful move, up $1.75. It is now in my shorting range. Stay tuned. Potash (POT) recovered from yesterday's loss. Twitter (TWTR) had a dead-cat bounce. DuPont (DD), my large cap fav, looks like it has a mission at $70. My fav short, Coca-Cola (KO), is flat. Oaktree Capital Group (OAK) is better; I have been buying. Here are some valueable columns form Real Money Pro today: Jim "El Capitan" Cramer takes an opposite view of mine on banks. Hey, Mikey, he likes theme!  Rev Shark on lull lite.  Tim "Not Judy or Phil" Collins on investor sentiment, which I believe is fueling the market, in part, this week.  Another one on sentiment from Rev.  Jeremy LaKosh on Staples (SPLS).

AAPL made another near-term low, trading briefly under $90. It was down 2.35% on the day, but Apple announced a $1 billion investment in Chinese ride-sharing company Didi Chuxing. Is CEO Tim Cook serious? Monsanto (MON) became a possible takeover target of two different German companies. This led me to re-establish a medium-sized position in rival fertilizer company Potash Corp. (POT). I plan to buy more at current prices today. I did no trading yesterday other than buying some POT. :) I remain manifestly bearish and deep into the ursine territory. My net-short exposure is as high as it's been in two years. The S&P 500 futures were down 3.5 points at last check, indicating more selling pressure in today's regular session. The U.S. dollar strengthened. Oil fell 55 cents to $46.15 a barrel. Gold lost three beaners to $1,268 an ounce. Among agricultural commodities, wheat was -1, corn -1 and soybeans -4.50. Lumber was unchanged. Bonds were lower in price, with the iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond ETF (TLT) losing $0.57. But 10- and 30-year U.S. Treasury yields both added two basis points. Municipal bonds were well bid, but closed-end muni funds were mixed. High-yield debt was slightly higher. The iShares iBoxx U.S. Dollar High Yield Corporate Bond ETF (HYG) finished +$0.09 and the SPDR Barclays High Yield Bond ETF (JNK) added $0.03. The Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit closed-end fund (BGB) finished the day three pennies higher. Bank stocks were flat to lower, but brokerage stocks got hit -- led by a two-beaner drop in Goldman Sachs (GS). Insurers were slightly higher, with Geico/General Re parent Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.A, BRK.B) recovering from recent weakness. Old tech ended mixed. Energy was stronger again,

The U.S. dollar strengthened a bit today. Consumer nondurables felt the pain of the currency rise and the KO miss.  I sold my long Procter & Gamble (PG) and took it off my Best Ideas List today.  PepsiCo (PEP), Kimberly-Clark (KMB) and KO all were weak. Crude oil rallied despite fundamental news that could have taken it lower. It was $1.43 to $42.51 in what looks like a massive short squeeze. Nat gas was flat. Gold was unchanged at $1,253. Agricultural commodities were through the roof following days of strengthening prices: wheat +12.50, corn +6.25, soybean +22.00 and oats +10.50. Food inflation lays ahead, Janet Yellen. Bonds were lower in price and higher in yield. iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond ETF (TLT) was down $1.05. The 10-year U.S. note yield rose by four basis points to 1.82% and the long bond by the same amount to 2.63%. Municipals flat-lined, but the sprint for yield resulted in more gains for closed-end municipal bond funds. High yield improved. iShares iBoxx High Yield Corporate Bond ETF (HYG) was up 27 cents and SPDR Barclays High Yield Bond ETF (JNK) was up 11 cents. Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) was three pennies to the good. Banks were tentative midday but are at their highs for the day now. Brokerages are up, with Morgan Stanley (MS) up 50 cents and Goldman Sachs (GS) up $2.90. Life insurance responded to the drop in bond prices as reinvestment opportunities are seen expanding, though rates remain very low. Energy stocks were higher with the commodity advance. Schlumberger (SLB) was up $1.80 and Exxon Mobil (XOM) up $1.13. Retail was mixed, with short Nordstrom (JWN) the strongest to the upside (up $1.45). Wal-Mart (WMT) faltered a bit. Prior long Macy's (M) was up 40 cents. Media was mixed. Disney (DIS) was up 70 cents but Comcast (CMCSA) was down 85 cents. Ag equipment, led by Deere (DE), which was up $2.25, was again strong. However, Caterpillar (CAT) slowed down after recent gains. Old tech was led to the upside by IBM (IBM), rising $2.65 from pressure earlier in the week. Biotech was unchanged as Allergan (AGN) rallied and so did spec Intrexon (XON). Nothing much in my former Biotech Basket to record. Autos continued ahead for the third day in a row after a Barron's cover story. Ford (F) was up a quarter and General Motors (GM) up 40 cents. (T)FANG was led by Tesla (TSLA) and Amazon (AMZN). Netflix (NFLX) had a dead-cat bounce. NOSH was uneventful, as was CRABBY. In individual stocks, Twitter (TWTR) warmed up by 55 cents and Potash (POT) poked above $18 after yesterday's strong gain. DuPont (DD) was hit by profit taking and was down 75 cents. Very little trading today as I marvel at the unrelenting advance. Here are some great columns from RealMoneyPro today: Ed Ponsi "Scheme" on how to play higher crude oil prices.  Carley Garner on livestock prices.  Tim Melvin on energy-exposed banks.  RevShark sees slim long pickings.  The Divine Ms. M on market rotat

The U.S. dollar weakened. Crude oil rose by $1.22 to $41.00. Nat gas was up by sixteen cents. Gold rose by $18.70 to $1,253. Silver was up by 70 cents. More upside action in agricultural chemicals, with Potash (POT) up $1.20. Wheat +11.50, corn +3.50, soybeans +28.50 and oats +5.25. Lumber was +6.40. Bonds dropped a bit in price, and were slightly higher in yield. The 10-year U.S. note yield rose by one basis point to 1.78% and the long bond by a similar amount and yields 2.59%. Municipals down slightly; closed-end muni funds' rapid advance dissipated late in the day ... finally! High yield was well-bid. iShares iBoxx High Yield Corporate Bond ETF (HYG) was up 36 cents and SPDR Barclays High Yield Bond ETF (JNK) was up 15 cents. Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) was three cents lower; I am out of the name now. Banks exploded to the upside, led by JPMorgan Chase (JPM), Wells Fargo (WFC) and Comerica (CMA), all up by over a beaner. Life insurance advanced again, though my long Hartford Financial Services Group (HIG) lagged. Brokerages were up, led by Morgan Stanley (MS), up 64 cents, and Goldman Sachs (GS), up $3.65. Retail was quiet. Home Depot (HD) was a downside leader, off $1.50. Lowe's (LOW) was weak, too. Old tech got IBM'd, with IBM (IBM) down $8.50. Staples were broadly higher, led by long Procter & Gamble (PG), up 50 cents. Old media was mixed. Comcast (CMCSA) was lower but Disney (DIS) led the parade. Autos were strong, continuing the Barron's push over the past weekend. Ford (F) was up 15 cents and General Motors (GM) up 65 cents. Oils responded to better commodity pricing. Schlumberger (SLB) was the league leader, up $1.70. Biotech and the rest of the Nasdaq were conspicuously to the downside. iShares Nasdaq Biotechnology ETF (IBB) was down 1.66%. Allergan (AGN) is still recovering (up $4.50) and my former biotech basket got hit, but not materially so. (T)FANG weakness was also obvious, though Facebook (FB) had a late-day kick save. NOSH was mixed. So was CRABBY. In individual stocks, Twitter (TWTR) was a poor actor. On the other hand, fav long DuPont (DD) was strong, up $1.15. Here are some great posts on RealMoneyPro today: Some oil vey from Jim "El Capitan" Cramer.  Tim "Not Phil or Judy" Collins on some overnight trade ideas.  And also from Tim, some SPY-ing.  RevShark on

Another day in which what was bad -- cyclicals, energy and banking -- is good again. The U.S. dollar strengthened -- that, too, is not supposed to be good for equities. Crude oil reversed from 2016 highs established earlier in the day. closing down by 38 cents to $41.79. Natural gas climbed by three cents. Gold was down $12.60 to $1,249. Monster move higher in agricultural commodities: wheat +0.25, corn +11.00. soybean +20.5 -- to the moon, Alice.   Bonds climbed, with iShares 20-Year+ Treasury Bond ETF (TLT) up 50 cents. The 10-year and the 30-year barely moved. Yields unchanged. Municipals were slightly higher. High yield prospered, with iShares iBoxx High Yield Corporate Bond ETF (HYG) up 60 cents and SPDR Barclays High Yield Bond ETF (JNK) up 25 cents. Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) was up a nickel to a new recent high of $13.90. Banks were the world's fair on a slight JPMorgan Chase (JPM) beat against much-lowered expectations from a few months ago. Citigroup (C) and Bank of America (BAC) are on tap later this week. Notably, Deutsche Bank (DB) dead-catted by 8%. Brokerages ripped higher on better-than-expected capital markets activity within the JPM report. Morgan Stanley (MS) was up more than a beaner and Goldman Sachs (GS) was up $5. Life insurance stocks also strong. Autos rebounded, with General Motors (GM) up $1.05 and Ford (F) up 25 cents as investors are willing to pay more for a dollar of earnings that are peaking. Defensive consumer nondurables were anything but defensive as the market continues to rotate to more aggressive names. Staples were hit, including Best Ideas List long Procter & Gamble (PG).  Old tech was higher, but less than the market. IBM (IBM) continues its skein after an upgrade a few days ago. Modest gains for Intel (INTC), Cisco (CSCO) and Microsoft (MSFT). iShares Nasdaq Biotechnology ETF (IBB) was up 1.9% despite the Theranos news and the credit release at Valeant Pharmaceuticals (VRX). Allergan (AGN) was lower. My former biotech basket of speculative stocks was mixed. Celgene (CELG), Acadia Pharmaceuticals (ACAD), Intrexon (XON), Portola Pharmaceuticals (PTLA) and Sage Therapeutics (SAGE) were strong. Media joined the fun. Comcast (CMCSA) was up only 20 cents but Disney (DIS) was up two beaners. Retail was higher, but not materially so after the weak data. (T)FANG with the exception of a weak Facebook (FB) was higher on the day. But there was distinct underperformance against the averages. NOSH was mixed and also underperformed. CRABBY was led by C. In individual stocks, Apple (AAPL) was up $1.60 and Twitter (TWTR) rose almost 5%, while Potash (POT) and Radian Group (RDN) also moved higher. Limited trading today. Here is some great stuff on RealMoneyPro today: El Capitan on CSX  (CSX) and Jeremy LaKosh on the same subject.  RevShark's always-informative market takes.  Carleton English on the bears' dilemma.  Mike Norman's I told you so.  Ed Ponsi "Scheme" does the

The U.S. dollar declined in value today. This seems to be a key element of the bulls' argument after the Yellen statement yesterday. I sensed a small divergence in the internals late in the morning,  and indeed the market peaked around then. But there is another 15 minutes in the trading day. Crude oil was indifferent to the Fed chairwoman, flat on the session and closing at $38.33. Gold declined by $9 to $1,228 -- also indifferent to the prospects for continued money printing. Agricultural commodities were decimated: wheat -12.50, corn -6.00, soybeans -7.75 and oats -3.75. Not surprisingly, Potash (POT) was lower on the day. Bonds were indifferent to Yellen, rescinding all of yesterday's price gains; iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond (TLT) was down $1.35. The yield on the 10-year rose by three basis points to 1.84%. The long-bond yield climbed by five basis points to 2.66%. Municipal prices rose slightly. Closed-end municipal bond funds were well bid. High yield improved again -- iShares iBoxx High Yield Corporate Bond ETF (HYG) was up 37 cents and SPDR Barclays High Yield Bond ETF (JNK) was up 12 cents. Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) climbed by a nickel. Consumer staples failed to respond to a better currency, with Kimberly-Clark (KMB) the sole gainer on my screen. Banks recovered a tad from yesterday's licking, but are trading well below their highs. Life insurance stocks ripped higher after the MetLife (MET) decision, but are now trading at the day's lows. Lincoln National (LNC) was $1.50 lower than the session price high and Prudential (PRU) was $2.25 below the day's high. And that includes Hartford Financial Services Group (HIG), which I added to! I remain net short the space. Brokerages were only slightly above yesterday's close, and like the above, well below the day's highs. I would be avoiding them for a trade or investment. Retail stocks were mixed. My long fav, Macy's (M), was down a quarter and my short fav, Nordstrom (JWN), up a quarter. Remodeling stocks -- e.g., Home Depot (HD) -- continue to shine. Under Armour (UA) was an upside standout. Energy stocks advanced, led by Schlumberger (SLB), despite the limited price change for the commodity. Old tech was a bit disappointing, with small price changes. Media was mixed, with Comcast (CMCSA) flat and Disney (DIS) up 50 cents. Biotech continues to disappoint, led by controversial Valeant (VRX); I would note that the company's credit default swaps widened to a record high of 930 basis points this afternoon.  The debt markets are typically smarter than the equity markets, my experience shows Biotech biggies Celgene (CELG) and Gilead Sciences (GILD) both were lower. Save for Acadia Pharmaceuticals (ACAD), which had good FDA news, my old Biotech Basket was slightly weaker. Some old friends -- Twitter (TWTR) and Radian Group (RDN) -- catching bids. A current friend and my favorite large cap, DuPont (DD), continued to shine today. Short Caterpillar (CAT) continues its northerly route. Media is saying Apple (AAPL) is no longer in a bear market as it crosses some "levels." I am planning to short more in the days ahead. (T)FANG lagged after a nice run in the last week or two. Tesla (TSLA) and Netflix (NFLX) were lower. So was Facebook (FB) -- everyone's fav. Amazon (AMZN) continues to rip, with $600 in sight, and I have stopped out my loss. Will come back to it when I see some price momentum reversal! NOSH was tasty -- all four components higher. CRABBY was not so crabby --all six components higher.
