The U.S. dollar strengthened. Crude oil dropped again, but only by two bits to $42.87. Gold was essentially unchanged. Agricultural commodities: wheat -13, corn -1.50, soybeans +7.50 and oats-2. Lumber +1.30. Bonds were better bid despite a weak five-year note auction. The yield on the 10-year U.S. note fell by one basis point and the long bond yield was flat. The 2s/10s spread was 81 basis points, up slightly day over day. Municipals bid were up small. Junk bonds were weaker, but Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) was up a dime to a new recent high of $14.85. This, despite a big divergence between lower oil prices and higher junk bond prices. Banks continued to rally despite weakness in European bank shares. Insurance stocks were well-bid, though my long Hartford Financial Services Group (HIG) , a recent star, was slightly lower. Brokerages flatlined after a large run-up. Retail was stronger, led by my short Nordstrom(JWN) , which was up nearly 3% on an upgrade. Energy stocks were weaker along with the lower commodities price. Biotech got hit, with Gilead Sciences (GILD) down more than 8%. Ag equipment , led by my short Caterpillar (CAT) , was up 5% after an earnings beat. CAT is now well into where I am considering additional shorts. Staples are conspicuously weak on the dollar's strength. My short Coca-Cola (KO) is getting hit. I am planning to add to this short. Autos are nothing -- again, which is disappointing after General Motors' GM earnings "blow out." (T)FANG was lower, but my short Netflix (NFLX) was higher based on a large insider purchase. In individual stock, DuPont (DD) is up on better earnings (more on this tomorrow). Starbucks (SBUX) was up, but well off its high, after a research upgrade at Goldman. Here are some value-added contributions on our site today: Jim "El Capitan" Cramer on tech tie-ups.  Mark Sebastian on Apple's technical setup. He is buying out-of-the-money calls. I remain short, and shorted more today. Gary Morrow is a running with Nike (NKE) . I remain short Foot Locker (FL) .  Tim "Not Judy or Phil" Collins goes tweet tweet.  Roger Arnold on the yield curve and insurance stocks.

The dollar strengthened and is now at a four-month high; I find that few are looking at this. The price of crude oil fell by two bits to under $45 a barrel. Gold is up $3 to $1,332. Agricultural commodities got schmeissed: wheat -10, corn -13, soybean -35 and oats -2. This could weigh on fertilizers and ag equipment stocks. Lumber was down $3 following the housing starts numbers. Bonds rallied. The 10-year U.S. note yield fell by three basis points to 1.555% while the long bond yield dropped by the same basis points to 2.275%. I would add to my short with yield drops back to 1.5% and 2.2%, respectively. Municipals were better to buy. Closed-end muni bond funds continue to rebound. Yesterday the sector was very strong after days of weakness). Junk bonds are stronger. Nonetheless, Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) was lower by a few pennies. Banks were mixed, though Bank of America's (BAC) strong Monday carried through today. I am looking for a Financial Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLF) short entry point. Brokerages were lower despite the Goldman Sachs (GS) beat. Here is Jimmy Cramer's take on Goldman. Life insurance was mixed. I am adding aggressively to HIG (where there is smoke, there is fire?)  Staples saw little price movement. Biotech was weaker. Speculative Intrexon (XON) (a former holding and Biotech Basket member) and Ziopharm Oncology (ZIOP) getting clipped again. Ag equipment got hurt by the drop in commodities prices. Both Caterpillar (CAT) and Deere(DE) are lower. I would add to my CAT short above $80 a share. Retail was broadly lower. I have no longs in the space. My shorts Foot Locker (FL) and Nordstrom (JWN) were back down after strong gains on Monday. (T)FANG was up small, save for NFLX's big drop. Here are some value-added contributions from our great team: Tim "Not Judy or Phil" Collins in preparation of the Mr. Softee's (i.e., Microsoft's (MSFT) ) earnings report today.  "Meet" Bret Jensen on three reasons to expect a pullback.  RevShark on anticipation. I keep on way-way-waiting!  Roger Arnold on ways to play a recovery in first-time home buying.

I added to my long of Radian (RDN) and my shorts of Apple (AAPL) and Foot Locker (FL) . I also increased my bond-market short and went back into SPY puts. Our Trade of the Week this week is to short Netflix (NFLX) at $96.50. Click here and here to see why.  In other market action: The U.S. dollar is weaker. Oil was down nearly another beaner, continuing last week's weakness (which represented crude's worse performance since February). For now, stock bulls are ignoring this. Gold was down $3 to $1,355 at last check. Agricultural commodities were mixed, with wheat -5.50, corn -6, soybeans and -1, but oats +3. Lumber is ending roughly +5.50. Bonds are seeing profit taking. The iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond ETF (TLT) was down $1.30 at last check. The 10-year Treasury yield is up seven basis points to 1.44% as I write this. The long bond is at 2.15%, up five basis points. The two-year/10-year Treasury spread is unchanged at 78 basis points. Municipals sold off today, but closed-end muni funds held up well. High-yield bonds traded better. The iShares iBoxx U.S. Dollar High Yield C

The U.S. dollar is stronger. Crude oil is breaking down, off $2 to $45.35. Smaller draw of supplies is the reason. Gold is down by $6 to $1,361. Bonds are flat. The yield on the 10-year U.S. note is unchanged while the long bond is down one basis point. The 2s/10s spread is unchanged at 80 basis points. Municipals and high yield are flat. Closed-end municipal bond funds continue to climb in price. Banks are solid, but are off the highs modestly. Brokerages are up a bit. Life insurance is terrible; no bounce after a sustained drop. Retail is lower, with my short Foot Locker (FL) down, though my other short Nordstrom (JWN) is higher. Old tech is quiet. Energy stocks are getting hit. I covered too early a week ago! Biotech is down a tad. Auto stocks are up modestly after their schmeisssing. Staples are down small save for PepsiCo (PEP) on an earnings beat. Media and ag equipment are doing nada. (T)FANG is mixed. Nothing special there. In individual stocks, TWTR, DD, RDN and Oaktree Capital Group (OAK) are up modestly. Apple (AAPL) is up two bits but still looks weak. Same for Starbucks (SBUX). Here are some value-added columns from our hard-working contributors: Jim "El Capitan" Cramer, who is probably deeply ensconced in his garden on Long Island, writes about Amazon's (AMZN) all-time high. Jim observes that this is occurring while retail is not folding. But retail has already been a land mine, so I am not sure whether the non-Amazon retail space is safe to invest in yet. "Meet" Bret Jensen on five stocks for the second half.  Roger Arnold on conflicting economic narratives. "Stormin'" Mike Norman sees a pullback in gold.  Chris Laudani on overvalued staples. This was also a theme of mine back in late May.

The U.S. currency weakened. The price of crude oil rallied by 67 cents after yesterday's schmeissing. Gold climbed by five bucks to $1,364. Agricultural commodities: wheat -6, corn -9, soybean flattish after yesterday's crash, oats +2. Bonds were flat after starting the day strong. The yield on the 10-year note and long bond were up one basis point to 1.38% and 2.14%, respectively. The 2s/10s spread was down to eighty basis points. Municipals were well-bid. Closed-end muni bond funds were mixed. The high-yield bond market prospered again. Banks were up, but not considerably. They seem to be laboring under the obvious pressures. Brokerages were flattish, disappointing after the schmeissing recently. The same applies to life insurance stocks, which can't get out of their own way. Now we have 30% plus gain in our shorts of Lincoln National (LNC) and MetLife (MET), which is a good thing. Retail was higher after serial weakness this year. My shorts Nordstrom (JWN) and Foot Locker (FL) were up large fractions. Home Depot (HD) retains sector leadership, but Bruce Kamich disses Lowe's (LOW).  Auto stocks are laboring under a peak print months ago in the seasonally adjusted annual rate; after the close, S&P lowered its auto sales forecasts. Energy stocks were mixed to higher. Old tech was dull with little price movement. Staples were stable. Media was quiet, though my short Disney (DIS) was up 60 cents. A nice boost in biotech. iShares Nasdaq Biotechnology (IBB) was up $5 and from these levels I could see some continued strength. Valeant (VRX) was an upside feature, rising more than 15%. (T)FANG was led by Facebook (FB) and Amazon (AMZN). In individual stocks, my long fav DuPont was weak (I am buying), Twitter (TWTR) was flat, Hartford Financial Services Group (HIG) was down a half buck and Oaktree Capital Group (OAK) was slightly higher on the day. My short Apple (AAPL) up 50 cents. Away from our site here are two good reads: Andrew Sorkin's summer reading list.  Knowledge@Wharton on China's debt load.  There also was a lot of value-added product on our site today: Spy vs. Spy on oil with Jim "El Capitan" Cramer and Tim "Not Judy or Phil" Collins.  Ben "Goldfinger" Cross is long and strong gold.  Mike "Stormin" Norman lives up to his name as he

The U.S. dollar strengthened. This is bearish for economic activity, commodities prices and profits. The price of crude oil got hit ... hard. At $46.50, it's down $2.50 on the day. Gold was up $18 to $1,357. Hey, Mikey, he likes it! Agricultural commodities: wheat +2, corn -9.50, soybean -60.50(!!), oats -1. Lumber +7. Bonds continued to ramp in price and move lower in yield. iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond ETF (TLT) was down $2.00. The yield on the 10-year U.S. note fell by nine basis points to 1.37%.  As I mentioned earlier, that's a 63-year low in yield. The long bond yield declined by 11 basis points to 2.14%. The 2s/10s spread flattened to another low at 82 basis points. Municipals were well-bid today. Closed-end muni bond funds were only slightly higher in price, though. The high-yield bond market continues to move with equities -- in this case, lower. Bank stocks are the negative feature in the market today, with declines of 3% to 4%. It's much worse (down 5% to 10%) in EU banking shares. Brokerages equal schmeissburger. Life insurance stocks were taken to the woodshed. My shorts Lincoln National (LNC) and MetLife (MET) were down $2 apiece, and my long Hartford Financial Services Group (HIG) fell $1.30; I have been adding. Retail was weaker after being weak all year; my short Nordstrom (JWN) was off 80 cents. Best Buy (BBY), Macy's (M) and Nike (NKE) were all worse off than Friday's close. My short Foot Locker (FL) was essentially unchanged. Old tech was weak but not materially so. Biotech was weak, though down less than 1%. Allergan (AGN) was up $2.50, though Valeant (VRX) hits new lows; more speculative biotech was much lower. Autos are tanking further, and so are housing stocks. Both groups have rolled over badly despite some sponsorship from "value investors." Ag equipment stocks were punished, with my short Caterpillar (CAT) down two beaners and Deere (DE) off $1.50. They must be watching the 60-cent decline in the price of soybeans!  Moreover, dealer sales continue to founder and the strength of our currency is like a dagger in the hearts of these stocks. Staples remain an upside feature. (T)FANG was under pressure. Tesla (TSLA) is a dog with fleas, lower for the second day in a row. Needham cut Netflix (NFLX), but it was still up 1% on the day. In individual stocks, Twitter (TWTR) was down nearly 1% but Oaktree Capital Group (OAK) was flat. My long fav DuPont (DD) was down $1.25 and approaching my buy level after I sold some off in the high $60s. I live in the $61 to $62 area, Apple (AAPL) again is breaking down, off almost a beaner.  Disney (DIS) shares are suffering under some weak movie experiences; that chart, too, looks like it is rolling over.  Here are some value added posts on our site today: Jim "El Capitan" Cramer chimes in on Deutsche Bank, the canary in the coal mine.  "Meet" Bret Jensen makes a second-half forecast.  Tim "Not Judy or Phil" Collins likes the Valeant chart. At some point there could be value, but the prospects for asset sales and writedowns and a $31-billion debt load in the face of eroding fundamentals makes me pass. Tom Graff likes bonds.  Rev Shark on the challenging markets.

The U.S. dollar weakened. The price of crude oil rose by 83 cents to $49.15. Gold roared ahead, up $25 to $1,345 as it breakouts from the $1,300 level. Agricultural commodities got schmeissed across the board: wheat -16, corn -4, soybean -16 and oats -7. Bonds continued to ramp. iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond ETF (TLT) was up $1.68. The yield on the 10-year U.S. note dropped by four basis points to 1.46% after hitting 1.40% early in the morning. The long bond yield declined by seven basis points to a 2.24% yield. The 2s/10s spread declined to a new record low of 85 basis points. Not good for financials that borrow short and lend longer and that have an asset-sensitive balance sheet. Municipal bonds were down small but closed-end funds traded somewhat higher. High-yield bonds were mixed. Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) was up a dime and back to $14.50 in the search for yield. Banks disappointed for the second day in a row, as I suggested in my Sell Banks post yesterday morning. http://realmoneypro.thestreet.com/dougs-daily-diary?published[value][date]=2016-06-30#why-im-not-bank-20160630 All major money center banks were lower today. After the close Warren Buffett filed for permission to go over 10% of Wells Fargo's (WFC) ownership, though he currently doesn't have an intention to do so. He is averaging down! Brokerage stocks also were lower, but marginally so. Insurance stocks also stunk after a feeble rally from large declines in the last week. I remain short Lincoln National (LNC) and MetLife (MET). Retail was mixed to higher. Shorts Nordstrom (JWN) and Foot Locker (FL) didn't do a damn thing. Old tech flat lined. Autos rallied small but could get hit on the after-the-close news. I covered much of my shorts in the belly of Monday's declines. I am a short seller on strength now. iShares Nasdaq Biotechnology ETF (IBB) was up $5. Allergan (AGN) rose $3 and there were good gains for value plays Celgene (CELG) and Gilead Sciences (GILD). Energy and media were mixed. Ag equipment was mixed. Caterpillar (CAT) was up a half a buck but Deere (DE) was down after a Morgan Stanley downgrade yesterday. (T)FANG returned to favor, led by Amazon (AMZN), Alphabet (GOOGL) and Netflix (NFLX), which caught an upgrade. Staples quieted down. In individual stocks, Twitter (TWTR) is making a move back toward some previous resistance (I added). My longs DuPont (DD) and Hartford Financial Services Group (HIG) showed little movement. Here are some value-added contributions on our site: 1. Jim "EL Capitan " Cramer gets toothy.  He also chimes on Tesla's (TSLA) accident.   Again, Tom Graff on bonds and Tim "Not Phil or Judy" Collins on bond spreads.  Eric Jackson on the impact of the Lions Gate (LGF) deal on Viacom (VIAB).  Rev Shark on correction risks.
