My most important take is that the normal correlations between asset classes -- stocks, bonds, commodities and currencies -- is not holding today; this should concern Bulls in the next day or so , if it continues. Most importantly, bonds closed near their highs -- and that is not a RISK ON message. I took the road less traveled buying on Tuesday afternoon and I took the road less traveled shorting on strength today. I am struck by so many low-quality stocks -- which have been schmeissed -- are rallying in rather large percentage terms today. Again, not the best of Bullish signposts. It seems, in watching the business news channels that EVERYONE caught the bottom ... and are again complacent. Ignored in that observation is the monumental technical damage of August 2015 and the fact that the global economy is wobbly and valuations are rich. Ignored is that the market mechanism is broken and Monday is not the last of it in all likelihood. Raise your hand if you think this market is healthy. Lazlo? Brian?Jeremy? Thomas? Bueller? As I have written, Tuesday was a near-perfect capitulation bottom after two -90% days. History shows we get a couple of contra trend rallies that are fierce in delta, but this is typically followed by a period of testing. I added aggressively to my Facebook (FB) short (over $89 today) and materially increased my short exposure through SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY) shorts all day on strength. As I posted in Columnist Conversation, were it not for a trip to the West Coast I would have been even more aggressive on the short side today.  (Medium-size short SPYs now). Banks are the world's fair. I like my early week pickups in this sector. A lot of technical analysts who were predicting another 10% drop on Tuesday are now looking for a rally towards the old highs. This provides little value-added to anyone as the rear window always has 20/20 vision. The close will be a function of the

As I suggested earlier that I'd be doing, I've added to my paired trade of going long on Twitter (TWTR) and short on Facebook (FB).

XL dropped 33% from Friday's close. MDT, F, CELG, CL, JPM, GE, MCK, HD, DAL, PEP and SBUX lost 20% or more. SBUX, BXP, HAS, CVS, ESRX, AET, ADP, FOXA, GILD, ABBV, UNH, MRK, MA, BXLT and DOW lost 17.5% to 20%. Worth Noting: Though profitable, my short covers in Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.B), MetLife (MET), Lincoln National (LNC) and Facebook (FB) late last week were premature.
We did finally see triggers against the last cycles in SPX, but I'm not convinced we won't...

Cost basis $197.60

ConocoPhillips is attracting heavy bullish interest again today. Yesterday the stock...
a trip to the West Coast in the next few days I would be even larger in my short exposure ...
