The U.S. dollar weakened. Oil rose by 97 cents to more than $50 a barrel. Gold fell by $10 and closed at $1,260. Again, the $1,300 level has proven to be a formidable resistance point. Agricultural commodities continued for the second day in a row to be under pressure: wheat -4, corn -5.5, soybean -14 and oats unchanged. Lumber +2.50. Bonds fell in price and rose in yield, with the iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond ETF (TLT) down $1.50. The 10-year U.S. note yield increased by nearly six basis points to 1.745%.The long bond's yield also climbed by nearly six basis points to 2.55%. The 2s/10s spread expanded by two basis points to 96 basis points. Municipals got hit and closed-end muni bond funds were lower in price. However, the high-yield bond market was strong, with iShares iBoxx High Yield Corporate Bond ETF (HYG) up 62 cents and SPDR Barclays High Yield Bond ETF (JNK) up 26 cents. Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) rose by nine cents to $14.46 a share. Banks gapped higher, as rates rose. Stress test results shortly. Brokerages were strong. Insurance stocks rose, with large gains in Lincoln National (LNC), MetLife (MET) and Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.B). My long Hartford Financial Services Group (HIG) was up $1. Retail was broadly higher but marginally so. My two shorts underperformed; Foot Locker (FL) was lower and Nordstrom (JWN) was up only slightly. Old tech was stronger, with IBM (IBM) up $2.50. Auto stocks rose after being weak for several trading day. Energy stocks followed the commodity higher. Ag equipment was strong, led by a $1.80 gain for Caterpillar (CAT). Media underperformed with small (pennies) gains at Comcast (CMCSA) and Disney (DIS). (T)FANG rallied from morning weakness. Amazon (AMZN) led the parade, but Tesla (TSLA) remains under pressure. In individual stocks, Potash (POT) gained a beaner and Oaktree Capital Group (OAK) and HIG almost did as well. Twitter (TWTR), a recent buy, closed over $17 a share and now is up more than 15% from my buy about a week ago. My fav large-cap, DuPont (DD), was up $1.20 and looks like it has a mission to reach $70 a share. Here are some value-added contributions on our site: Jim "El Capitan" goes beyond Brexit.  Mark Sebastian also chimes in on Brexit.  Carley Garner on gold.  Rev Shark on Friday's "action."

The U.S. dollar strengthened. Crude oil climbed to $49.20, up $1.23. Gold slipped by three dollars to $1,291. Agricultural commodities got schmeissed: wheat -7, corn -17, soybean -12 and oats unchanged. Lumber +2. Bonds were hit as the flight to safety dissipated. The yield on the 10-year note rose by five basis points to 1.666% (yikes!) and the long bond increased by an equivalent amount to a 2.47% yield. The 2s/10s spread steepened a bit to 93 basis points. Municipals sold off and so did closed-end muni bond funds. High yield was stronger. Bank stocks prospered, but were well off their early-morning highs. As I mentioned, C is trading under $43 a share after trading over $44. Bank of America (BAC) and JPMorgan Chase (JPM) gains "twittered" away. Insurance stocks rallied, but like banks, were lower than the a.m. levels. Brokerages were better, but they, too, were well off their highs. Retail showed small gains. FL, my short, was up $1 earlier in the day but closed just seven cents higher than Friday's close. Nordstrom (JWN) was up only two bits after some horrible underperformance. Biotech rallied after recent weakness, with iShares Nasdaq Biotechnology ETF (IBB) up $2.30. Energy stocks were higher, but only modestly so -- a continuing theme of the day. Old tech was mixed, with IBM (IBM) $1.60 higher leading the upside. (T)FANG was strong, led by Alphabet (GOOGL), Tesla (TSLA) and Amazon (AMZN). NFLX was lower on the NYT article I mentioned. Agricultural equipment traded higher despite CAT's 42nd consecutive month of lower dealer retail sales. Media was mixed. In individual stocks, Oaktree Capital Group (OAK) and TWTR rose. So did long fav DuPont (DD), but all were only marginally higher after better gains earlier. Apple (AAPL) was a clear underperformer, flat on the day. In sectors, Consumer Staples Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLP) and Material Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLB) were a tad higher. Here is some value-added commentary on the site: Jim "El Capitan" Cramer on a new oil-inspired dynamic in the marketplace.  Jeremy LaKosh on changing inflation expectations. I will be addressing this subject during the week. "Meet" Brett Jensen And "His Son Elroy" on three biotech opportunities.  Rev Shark wants to exit the Brexit chatter .  Sham "The" Gad "And the Pharoahs" on spin-off opportunities. Wooly bully!

Piper Jaffray is reiterating it "Buy" recommendation on Nike (NKE) this morning, but I respectfully disagree.

Jim Cramer thinks Foot Locker is buy, saying the stock has come down a lot. Cramer said right now he'd rather buy Foot Locker over Nike.

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).

The Materials Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLB) -- this week's Short Trade of the Week -- initially fell, but ended higher on the day. I plan to add to this short today on any further strength. The Consumer Staples Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLP), last week's Short Trade of the Week, also rose. Defensive staples were strong throughout the afternoon. I've moved my short book's emphasis over the past several weeks to individual securities and sectors and away from broad bets like shorts of the SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY) and the PowerShares QQQ ETF (QQQ). That's because the former is working better than the l
