My call of a generational bottom in bond yields looks more right than ever. As a result, I've added to my short of the iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond ETF (TLT) on fixed-income prices' recent strength. I covered my small short of the Financial Sel

The U.S. dollar was weaker. Crude oil dropped by nearly $1 to $41.10. The causality between energy prices and junk bonds and equities have disconnected recently. Gold rose by $7 to $1,333. Agricultural commodities: wheat -3, corn -3, soybeans -7. Lumber -3. Bonds were weaker despite poor economic data and a downbeat Atlanta Fed GDP forecast. I believe that the fixed-income market is discounting a recession. The 10-year U.S. note lost one basis point in yield to 1.50% and the long bond was flat, yielding 2.22%. The 2s/10s spread was relatively flat at 79 basis points. Municipals were up small. Closed-end muni bond funds were mixed. Junk bonds acted junky. Banks and insurance stocks were mixed and brokerages were lower. Financial Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLF) was up eight cents -- a new (small) short based on the flattening in the yield curve and the prospects for deteriorating domestic economic growth. Autos were lower on Ford's negative guidance and outlook. Oil stocks weakened off of crude oil's continued dive. Retail stocks, save Home Depot (HD) and Lowe's(LOW) (which were stronger), faltered. Agricultural equipment gave back recent gains; I missed shorting Caterpillar (CAT) (which I wanted to execute) but was not around this morning. Media was lower, and was old tech. Staples picked up a bid after recent weakness. Biotech was flat after spirited action yesterday. (T)FANG featured big rips by GOOGL and AMZN after the close and post earnings. In individual stocks, Apple (AAPL) continued to gain (up $1.50) and DuPont (DD) might have an appointment with $70a share. Here are some value added contributions on our site today:: Jim "El Capitan" Cramer on Ford and peak autos. Thanks for the shout-out, Jimmy!  Ben "Goldfinger" Cross on the Federal Open Market Committee, gold, aluminum and Ford.  Big Jim Gentile on autos -- fuhgetabout 'em!  RevShark on the prospects for a market breakout. The Divine Ms M on the subsurface "action."

The U.S. dollar faltered. The price of crude oil fell another $1 on top of days of losses. No correlation at all with stocks. Gold up $20 to $1,341. A two-week high. Agricultural commodities: wheat flat, corn +4, soybeans +13, oats -1. Lumber -2. Bonds ripped higher, with iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond ETF (TLT) up $1.90. The yield on the 10-year U.S. note dropped by six basis points to 1.50%. The long bond was 21%. As mentioned earlier the 2s/10s spread dropped to 78 basis points, within three basis points of the lowest spread since 2007. Municipals were well-bid. Closed-end muni bond funds gave up a bit despite the gain in taxables. Junk bonds were higher. Banks continued to rally. I shorted Financial Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLF) near day's end. An awful Deutsche Bank (DB) profit report sent the shares nearly 4% lower. Insurance stocks were hit on higher bond prices. Retail universally was lower after some tentative signs recently of technical improvement. Crude oil's decline hit energy stocks -- another group that appeared to have improved technically. Maybe not so much. Media was mixed. Staples were weak, led by lower guidance at KO. Biotech was up 3%, led by good news from Allergan (AGN) . Ag equipement was mixed. Deere (DE) was lower but my short Caterpillar (CAT) continues its strong climb. (T)FANG featured an earnings-inspired run from FB after the close. In individual names, Apple was higher, Twitter lower and Oaktree Capital Group (OAK) was down nearly 4% in reaction to earnings. which I will get to tonight. Here are some valuable contributions on our site today: Jim "El Capitan" Cramer on four stocks that upset the short community.  Tom Graff on the Fed.  Rev Shark invokes The Happenings. We'll see the Fed in September.  "Big" James Gentile on when good earnings really aren't. Ed Ponsi "Scheme" on the tale of two Apples.

The dollar strengthened and is now at a four-month high; I find that few are looking at this. The price of crude oil fell by two bits to under $45 a barrel. Gold is up $3 to $1,332. Agricultural commodities got schmeissed: wheat -10, corn -13, soybean -35 and oats -2. This could weigh on fertilizers and ag equipment stocks. Lumber was down $3 following the housing starts numbers. Bonds rallied. The 10-year U.S. note yield fell by three basis points to 1.555% while the long bond yield dropped by the same basis points to 2.275%. I would add to my short with yield drops back to 1.5% and 2.2%, respectively. Municipals were better to buy. Closed-end muni bond funds continue to rebound. Yesterday the sector was very strong after days of weakness). Junk bonds are stronger. Nonetheless, Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) was lower by a few pennies. Banks were mixed, though Bank of America's (BAC) strong Monday carried through today. I am looking for a Financial Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLF) short entry point. Brokerages were lower despite the Goldman Sachs (GS) beat. Here is Jimmy Cramer's take on Goldman. Life insurance was mixed. I am adding aggressively to HIG (where there is smoke, there is fire?)  Staples saw little price movement. Biotech was weaker. Speculative Intrexon (XON) (a former holding and Biotech Basket member) and Ziopharm Oncology (ZIOP) getting clipped again. Ag equipment got hurt by the drop in commodities prices. Both Caterpillar (CAT) and Deere(DE) are lower. I would add to my CAT short above $80 a share. Retail was broadly lower. I have no longs in the space. My shorts Foot Locker (FL) and Nordstrom (JWN) were back down after strong gains on Monday. (T)FANG was up small, save for NFLX's big drop. Here are some value-added contributions from our great team: Tim "Not Judy or Phil" Collins in preparation of the Mr. Softee's (i.e., Microsoft's (MSFT) ) earnings report today.  "Meet" Bret Jensen on three reasons to expect a pullback.  RevShark on anticipation. I keep on way-way-waiting!  Roger Arnold on ways to play a recovery in first-time home buying.

This trade gives ample time to see interest rates rise.

I'm currently plenty short in the market, but if I had room for more short positions, I'd be shorting banks via the Financial Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLF) on this morning's earnings beat from Citigroup (C) .

Last week's Trade of the Week -- short SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY) -- was a good one. So was the prior week's Financial Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLF) short.
