The U.S. dollar weakened. The price of crude oil rose again by more than $1 to $44.53. Gold fell by $9 to $1,341. Agricultural commodities were volatile: wheat +6, corn +2, soybean -1 and oats -1. Lumber +1.50 after yesterday's sharp fall. Bonds reversed yesterday's losses, and I lost on my short bond trade/investment! Yields on the 10-year and long bond fell by five basis points. iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond ETF (TLT) gained more than a beaner. The 2s/10s spread flattened a bit to nearly 80 basis points. Municipals were well-bid, and closed-end muni funds were better. Junk bonds were up modestly. Banks had a second weak day in a row. Insurers and brokerages also were lower as yields fell. Energy stocks rallied. Auto stocks were lower. Ag equipment faded. Retail continued to sparkle, led by Nordstrom (JWN) (small short), Target (TGT) and Foot Locker (FL) (small short). Old tech was moribund. Biotech flat lined. Media was conspicuously lower. Staples were non-descript. Is (T)FANG getting tired? In individual stocks, my long fav DuPont (DD) was down nearly 2% on a European Union "in depth" review of the planned DuPont/Dow (DOW) merger, which could also jeopardize Bayer's quest for Monsanto (MON) . Sanford Bernstein is concerned. Here are some value-added contributions on our site today: Jim "El Capitan" Cramer, like Chauncey Gardiner, is watching. And he also opines on Twitter's "point of intent."  Mark "Summer in the City" Sebastain on volatility.  Eric Jackson on comparing Amazon AMZN (then) to Tesla TSLA (now). Strong analysis!  Guy Ortmann on valuations.  Tom Graff on retail sales and the Fed.  Enjoy the weekend!

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).
