The U.S. dollar weakened. Oil rose by 97 cents to more than $50 a barrel. Gold fell by $10 and closed at $1,260. Again, the $1,300 level has proven to be a formidable resistance point. Agricultural commodities continued for the second day in a row to be under pressure: wheat -4, corn -5.5, soybean -14 and oats unchanged. Lumber +2.50. Bonds fell in price and rose in yield, with the iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond ETF (TLT) down $1.50. The 10-year U.S. note yield increased by nearly six basis points to 1.745%.The long bond's yield also climbed by nearly six basis points to 2.55%. The 2s/10s spread expanded by two basis points to 96 basis points. Municipals got hit and closed-end muni bond funds were lower in price. However, the high-yield bond market was strong, with iShares iBoxx High Yield Corporate Bond ETF (HYG) up 62 cents and SPDR Barclays High Yield Bond ETF (JNK) up 26 cents. Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) rose by nine cents to $14.46 a share. Banks gapped higher, as rates rose. Stress test results shortly. Brokerages were strong. Insurance stocks rose, with large gains in Lincoln National (LNC), MetLife (MET) and Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.B). My long Hartford Financial Services Group (HIG) was up $1. Retail was broadly higher but marginally so. My two shorts underperformed; Foot Locker (FL) was lower and Nordstrom (JWN) was up only slightly. Old tech was stronger, with IBM (IBM) up $2.50. Auto stocks rose after being weak for several trading day. Energy stocks followed the commodity higher. Ag equipment was strong, led by a $1.80 gain for Caterpillar (CAT). Media underperformed with small (pennies) gains at Comcast (CMCSA) and Disney (DIS). (T)FANG rallied from morning weakness. Amazon (AMZN) led the parade, but Tesla (TSLA) remains under pressure. In individual stocks, Potash (POT) gained a beaner and Oaktree Capital Group (OAK) and HIG almost did as well. Twitter (TWTR), a recent buy, closed over $17 a share and now is up more than 15% from my buy about a week ago. My fav large-cap, DuPont (DD), was up $1.20 and looks like it has a mission to reach $70 a share. Here are some value-added contributions on our site: Jim "El Capitan" goes beyond Brexit.  Mark Sebastian also chimes in on Brexit.  Carley Garner on gold.  Rev Shark on Friday's "action."

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).

Money needs to move back out of governments at some point, and it could be after the Brexit vote.

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.

The U.S. dollar was slightly weaker. Crude oil was up 40 cents to over $50. Gold is unchanged. Agricultural commodities are mixed today after sharp gains: wheat +2, corn -0.50, soybean +2.50 and oats +2.25. Lumber is down $6.50. iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond ETF (TLT) is up 55 cents. The yield on the 10-year U.S. note and long bond are down a basis point. The 2s/10s spread is unchanged at 94 basis points. Municipals were bid and higher. Closed-end municipal bonds were mixed. High yield was stronger, again. iShares iBoxx High-Yield Corporate Bond ETF (HYG) was up 40 cents and SPDR Barclays High Yield Bond ETF (JNK) was up 15 cents. Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund's (BGB) streak came to a temporary halt, down a nickel. Banks were mixed with little price change. Insurance stocks were fractionally better, with my long Hartford Financial Services Group (HIG) rallying 35 cents. However, brokerages were hit with some profit-taking. Retail was broadly higher. My short Nordstrom (JWN) was up 80 cents. Remodeling came back from recent drops. Consumer staples were mixed. Kellogg (K) was an upside standout, based on vague rumors that Coca-Cola (KO) is interested in the company. I have no clue.  Energy stocks are on a magnificent streak -- still, following higher crude oil prices. Autos strengthened, with 25-cent gains for Ford (F) and General Motors (GM). Old tech showed nothing. Old media flat-lined. Biotech, which I sold out of and observed the media's love affair with after gains in the space, was conspicuously to the downside. VRX lower and so was most of the sector. iShares Nasdaq Biotechnology ETF (IBB) was  down $6, or 2.2%. Agricultural equipment was unchanged. (T)FANG was lower save Telsa (TSLA) due to the Ron Baron Bounce! NOSH's tasty bits included O'Reilly Automotive (ORLY) and Home Depot (HD). In individual stocks, Potash (POT) continues higher, Oaktree Capital Group (OAK) saw a second nice advance in a row, Monsanto (MON) looks like it might be rolling over (but it's a newsy stock), DuPont (DD) is a monster, and Apple (AAPL), my Trade of the Week, was up again today. I am about to short more. Here are some good, value-added commentary on our site: Jim "El Capitan" Cramer looks toward the skies.  Tom Graff looks at the gloomy domestic economy.  Melvin, millennials and homes.   Rev Shark on portfolio positioning.  Muhammad Ali rubbed off on "Diamond" James Gentile.  Or maybe it was Randy Newman's "short people."

The U.S. dollar was unchanged. Crude oil was up a beaner to nearly $50 a barrel. Nat gas up two cents. Gold was up $4.40 to $1,247 but still in a downtrend. Agricultural commodities were on another tear: wheat +9.75, corn +9.00, soybean +7.00 and oats +6.00. Fertilizer stocks, such as Potash (POT), are responding. Bonds were weaker in price, higher in yield. iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond ETF (TLT) was up nearly a buck. The yield of the 10-year U.S. note was up two-and-a-half basis points to 1.73%. The long bond was up by three basis points to 2.554%. The 2s/10s spread still is at 93 basis points. High yield prospered, with iShares iBoxx High-Yield Corporate Bond ETF (HYG) up 40 cents and SPDR Barclay High Yield Bond ETF (JNK) up 15 cents. Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) hit another new high, rising 18 cents to $14.66. Banks rallied, but not intensely, perhaps because of continuing flat yield curve. Brokerages were stronger with Goldman Sachs (GS) up $2 (it got 250,000 summer intern applications!) Insurance stocks were firmer, with Lincoln National (LNC) up $1.10, or 2.5%; my long Hartford Financial Services Group (HIG) lagged, up only 15 cents. Old tech lagged with little price change. Biotech was up, with iShares Nasdaq Biotechnology ETF (IBB) rising more than $4 and led by Celgene (CELG). Acadia Pharmaceuticals (ACAD), a former biotech basket member, was up nearly 13%, or $4.60. I sold out of the space last week. Autos was up small. Retail was disappointing, with most in the space marginally higher or down. Home Depot (HD) and Lowe's (LOW) were low points Ag equipment was stronger, with Deere (DE) and Caterpillar (CAT) both up. Energy stocks surged, led by Schlumberger (SLB), up $3.50. Media was a noticeable underperformer, with Comcast (CMCSA) and Disney (DIS) flat. (T)FANG underperformed, with Alphabet (GOOGL) down almost $6 and Facebook (FB) barely higher. NOSH was mixed, with Nike (NKE) and Starbucks (SBUX) better but O'Reilly Automotive (ORLY) and HD lower. In individual stocks, POT was a highlight, up $1.20, perhaps on higher ag prices. Oaktree Capital Group (OAK) climbed $2.50 on a favorable Barron's article. Here are some value-added columns on our site today: Ben "Goldfinger" Cross likes gold.  "Diamond" James Gentile on what the rate of rate rise means for stocks.  Cramer and Mohr on the soft dollar benefits.  Rev asks does the market even care what Yellen says?   Jeremy LaKosh on the labor market.

The U.S. dollar got schmeissed after the weak jobs report. Crude oil fell by 70 cents. Gold was up by $30 to $1,242. Agricultural commodities were inconsistent in price change today: wheat +8, corn +2, soybean -7 (after yesterday's huge ramp) and oats -1. Lumber +5. Bonds soared. iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond ETF (TLT) was up $1.70. The 2s/10s spread stood at 92 basis points; a multiyear low, at 90 bps, occurred yesterday. The 10-year U.S. note dropped by nearly 11 basis points to 1.70% and the 20-year yield fell by seven basis points to 2.52%. Municipal bonds were stronger, as were closed-end muni bond funds. High yield traded slightly higher in price. Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) was flat. Banks were the principal victim of lower rates; I expect a good portion of the spring rally to be retraced this summer. I added to my Financial Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLF) short. Citigroup's (C) management warning weighed on its shares. Jamie Dimon's auto loan warnings also are weighing on the bank sector as well as the auto space as credit quality and future funding issues arose. Brokerages were weak. Insurance stocks got smoked; I remain short Lincoln National (LNC), down $1.50, and MetLife (MET), down $1.40. My long Hartford Financial Services Group (HIG) was down 60 cents. Energy stocks fared better than the commodity drop with only modest losses. Retail exhibited modest price changes -- flat lined, on average. Old media fell back, led by IBM (IBM), down $1.25. Autos continue their weak spell, with both Ford (F) and General Motors (GM) falling to recent lows. Again, value traps. Ag equipment continued to be responsive to a Joy Global (JOY) beat. Both Deere (DE), on a Goldman upgrade, and Caterpillar (CAT) experienced nice gains. Media was flat to slightly lower. In individual stocks, Alibaba (BABA) traded poorly (still!) after its partial distribution by Softbank. Starbucks (SBUX) is still leaving a bitter taste. Apple (AAPL) was up small in a weak tape after a few days of underperformance. The Mighty Oak -- aka Oaktree Capital Group (OAK) -- dropped some leaves. DuPont (DD), my fav long, continues to be a dream coming true. Here are several value-added contributions on Real Money Pro: Jim "El Capitan" Cramer firing some yield-seeking missiles.  Skip Raschke loves gold and has some secrets how to trade it. And Tim "Not Judy or Phil" Collins has some additional thoughts on a trigger to buy gold.  "The Piano Man" RevShark sings about the Fed being a matter of trust.  Versace and Hawkins on what the jobs report might mean for stocks and economic forecasts.
