It's fair to ask how so many people failed to foresee the recent downturn in business prospects for Apple (AAPL), the earnings disappointment at Disney (DIS) or this week's "Retail Wreck."

If BBBY can continue to hold the $45 level it could rally over $50.

Let's wrap up my take on Wall Street's major sectors with a look at a few more market segments. (You can read my earlier thoughts on the market's other major sectors here and here.)

The U.S. dollar strengthened. Crude oil fell by a quarter to $43.40. Nat gas was a nickel to the good. Gold fell by $12.60 to $1,279 and it continues to look like $1,300 is a formidable hurdle. Agricultural commodities quieted down, with wheat and corn moving small. Soybeans +8.50 and oats -3.50. Lumber +1.50. Bonds lifted in price and dropped in yield for the second day in a row. The yield on the 10-year and long bond dropped by two basis points to 1.78% and 2.64%, respectively. Municipals flattened. Closed-end municipal bond funds were mixed. The high-yield market was off somewhat. Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) was down a penny to $13.95. Banks got whacked -- fortunately, as I remain short Financial Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLF) at good prices. Drops of 2% to 3% for the major money center banks. Deutsche Bank (DB) continues lower. Let's watch this and the poor performance of the European banks closely in the weeks ahead. Life insurance stocks also got schmeissed -- again, a good thing for me as I am short Lincoln National (LNC) and MetLife (MET), both down by about a beaner. Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.B) was lower after yesterday's $2+ decline. Brokerages also got hit, with MS down 65 cents and GS down $3.10. I covered my trading short rentals today on this weakness. Old tech was mixed. I covered my MSFT trading short (I didn't like the quality of the earnings report) for a $2 gain this morning. Retail was mixed, but my sole exposure -- short Nordstrom (JWN) -- was down $1.20, continuing its recent weakness. Again, a good thing! Former retail longs Macy's (M), Best Buy (BBY) and Bed, Bath & Beyond (BBBY) were taken to the woodshed today. Consumer staples strengthened. Autos continue their sloppy streak -- I doubled my shorts recently. Ford (F) was down 15 cents and General Motors (GM) down 65 cents. Even Phish (Let Trey Sing!) knows about Peak Autos! Bummed is what you are in "Contact" when your auto stocks are towed. Energy stocks were lower, with Schlumberger (SLB) down $2 and Exxon Mobil (XOM) off 35 cents. I like, others don't. Media made for uninteresting viewing, with Disney (DIS) and Comcast (CMCSA) lower. Biotech continues as a bio wreck. iShares Nasdaq Biotechnology ETF (IBB) was down nearly $8, or almost 3%. Speculative biotech was annihilated, with Acadia Pharmaceuticals (ACAD) down 7% and Portola Pharmaceuticals (PTLA) off nearly 6%. (T)FANG was weighed down by a $9 loss in Tesla (TSLA) as management departures and a Chanos diss on "Fast Money Halftime" impacted the security. Earnings are after close and I am going into it with my small short. TSLA is on my Best Ideas List. NOSH all up, but small. CRABBY was crabby, led by declines in Radian Group (RDN), Citigroup (C) and Alleghany (Y). In miscellaneous action, Twitter (TWTR) had an unaccustomed up day, but Potash (POT) stayed in jail (and I don't see a reason why it will get a "Get Out of Jail" card over the short term with weakening fundamentals). Radian was lower, Oaktree Capital Group (OAK) continues its two-day loss of leaves, Hartford Financial Services Group (HIG) is burdened by its brothers and sisters in the insurance space (I am buying more on weakness), and fav DuPont (DD) continues its decline (but it's too early to add to). Apple gives up much of yesterday's gains, down a beaner. Here is some great analysis from today's Real Money Pro: Jim "El Capitan" on the good health of the broadcasting industry.  Jeremy LaKosh looks for a potential entry point in automaker Ford.  I already have mine – and it's on the short side! RevShark's got the seasonal and Fed fever and jitters. Another good one from Rev on the absence of fear in the marketplace.  Ed Ponsi "Scheme" on trading a lower currency. No Ponsi Scheme in this column!  Divine on the issue of "giddiness."  She's always a great read and makes me think more outside of the envelope.

Stocks slid sharply in the final hour to finish at the day's lows after a real roller coaster of a day! Booyah! The U.S. dollar weakened. The price of crude oil rose by 63 cents to $45.96. Gold climbed by $17 to $1,267. Silver rose by 30 cents. Agricultural commodities: wheat +1.50, corn +7.00, soybean flat and oats -2.25. Bonds rose in price, declined in yield. The yield on the 10-year U.S. note dropped by three basis points to 1.83% and the long bond by only one basis points to yield 2.68%. Municipals were well-bid. Closed-end municipal bond funds were mixed. The high-yield market showed little price movement. Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB), up earlier in the day, closed down a dime. Banks are at the lows of the day. I double my XLF short today. JPMorgan Chase (JPM) and Citigroup (C) were down by about a half a beaner, while Bank of America (BAC) slid by 25 cents. Brokerages were lower. Morgan Stanley (MS) was down 30 cents and Goldman Sachs (GS) was off about $2.50. Life insurance, the object of my disaffection, got schmeissed with dollar-plus losses for MetLife (MET), Lincoln National (LNC) and Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.B). My long Hartford Financial Services Group (HIG) also was lower by a similar amount. Retail stocks were broadly lower, led by Bed, Bath & Beyond (BBBY), Home Depot (HD) and Lowe's (LOW). Short Nordstrom (JWN) was off 65 cents. Old media sank, led by IBM (IBM), down $3.35, and Microsoft (MSFT), down $1.30. Auto stocks held well, with a good gain for Ford (F), up 45 cents. Energy stocks fell despite a higher commodity price. Schlumberger (SLB) was down $1.15 and Exxon Mobil (XOM) off 80 cents. Biotech was only slightly lower. Allergan (AGN) was down a beaner. Ag equipment was under pressure, with Deere (DE) and Caterpillar (CAT) down about 1% each. Media was mixed, though Disney (DIS) was down $1.20 after a rich premium deal for Comcast (CMCSA) to acquire DreamWorks (DWA) was announced. (T)FANG was lower, save Facebook (FB), which was up nearly $8. NOSH saw all components lower. CRABBY components all were lower as well. Apple (AAPL) was a leader on the downside, off $3. Short/sell, don't hold.  Oaktree Capital Group (OAK) was lower after earnings (I'll review tomorrow). Some good stuff on Real Money Pro today: Jim "El Capitan" Cramer on the worst over for pharma.  RevShark is running with the bulls.  Tim Melvin on Carlyle Group (CG) and its tons of cash.  Tim "Not Judy or Phil" Collins on playing earnings-related volatility of Amazon (AMZN), LinkedIn (LNKD) and Expedia (EXPE).  Daniel "Oil Vey" Dicker on Hess (HES) over Pioneer Natural Resources (PXD).
