It would be polite to say many of these predictions were off the mark; missing the target entirely might be more accurate.

The U.S. dollar strengthened on Fed chair Janet Yellen's labor market remarks. Multinationals face this expanding headwind. And so do countries that have borrowed in U.S. dollars. The price of crude oil flat lined. Gold up $2. Ag commodities lower across-the-board: wheat down $0.02, corn $0.04, soybeans $0.13 and oats up $0.01. Lumber down $2.50. Bonds staged a good rally. The yield on the 10-year fell by 5 basis points to 2.55% and the long bond by a comparable amount. The 2s/10s spread fell by 2 basis points to 131 basis points. Municipals were well bid and closed-end muni bonds enjoyed an up (but modest) improvement. Junk bonds were also higher. Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB)  up $0.03. Banks held their gains despite lower bond yields. Insurance stocks were mixed. Brokerages showed no price movement. Autos continue to stall. I am out of my shorts, here. Energy stocks were unchanged, in line with crude oil. No positions here, either. Biotech did little. Dead cat bounce for Valeant Pharmaceuticals (VRX) . Gilead Sciences (GILD) rallied and some speculative biotech ripped (Portola Pharmaceuticals (PTLA) , Intrexon (XON) ). Retail (more on this subject tomorrow) was irregularly higher, led by JC Penney (JCP)Kohl's (KSS) and Home Depot (HD) . Media was stronger, led by Disney (DIS) , which got a Bank of America (BAC) upgrade. Fertilizers are mixed - Potash Corporation of Saskatchewan (POT) lower (I am still not interested in this name), Monsanto (MON) higher. Consumer staples were lower - with Kimberly Clark (KMB) and Coca-Cola (KO) leading to downside. But Campbell Soup (CPB) , a long, caught a bid. Ag equipment mixed, showing no correlation today to commodities. (FANG) was higher, but moderately so. Amazon (AMZN) and Alphabet (GOOGL)  were both up. In individual stocks DuPont (DD) still DuLovely. Radian (RDN) now modestly higher, after being weak all day. Oaktree Capital OAK still getting its leaves t
