The U.S. dollar weakened. The price of crude oil declined by four bits to $49.86. Gold flatlined. Ag commodities rallied: wheat up $0.02, corn up $0.01, soybeans up $0.16 and oats up $0.02. Lumber fell an outsized $9 and closed at a multi-week low. Peak housing? Bonds rallied (I covered a large portion of my bond short early in the day). Yields fell by two to three basis points The 10-year U.S. note yield fell below 1.77% -- though Tepper was quite bearish on bonds. The 2s/10s spread was flat at 95 basis points. Municipals were actually slightly higher in price, but that didn't keep closed-end municipal bond funds from getting schmeissed. the lack of liquidity in that asset class was a subject I wrote about midday. Look at BlackRock Inv. Quality Munic. Trust (BKN) , Invesco Pennsylvania Value Mncpl Incm Tr (VPV) , Etrion (ETX) , BlackRock Municipal Income Trust II (BLE) (more declines of 1.5% to 3%) after a similar drop on Friday! This is supposed to be a conservative asset class, but these funds have lost nearly their annual dividend yields in two days! Junk bonds were slightly weaker but, again, Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) had an outsized decline. Stay far from both closed end municipal bond funds and BGB. Banks were disappointing for the second day in a row. I have expressed my views here. Short JPMorgan Chase (JPM) , Citigroup (C) and Financial Select Sector SPDR Fund (XLF is my Trade of the Week -- down a dime from my cost on the day). See Jim's good columns on sector below. Surprising executive departure at Visa causes price weakness. Insurance was unchanged to lower but brokerages got hit after Friday's strength. Old tech was uneventful. IBM (IBM) down $1 after a slight beat. Retail was a conspicuous market blemish across the board weakness. Home Depot (HD) , Lowe's (LOW)  , Macy's (M) and Nordstrom (JWN) featured losers. Biotech after a very weak Friday. Valeant Pharmaceuticals Intl (VRX) (Ackman) new low, Allergan (AGN)  down $4, but Celgene (CELG)  up $1. Big pharma down small. Consumer staples weakened. Core short, Coca-Cola (KO) , a new low. Autos lower -- Ford at another low. Ag equipment down modestly. (T)FANG mixed. Netflix (NFLX) up big on a nice beat (I remain small short the name) Amazon (AMZN) and Tesla (TSLA) lower. Here are some value-added contributions on our site: 1. Jim "El Capitan" Cramer had several posts on banks.

These 4 names look interesting in this tough market.

The market opens on an up note across the board. It's nice to see retail sales increase 2.7% year over year and 0.6% month over month in September on broad gains across categories. As noted in a recent column, I am starting to get a little more positive on retail, although it is still an underweight in my portfolio. Holiday sales are projected to show a 3.6% rise this year as well. Not stellar, but solid.

 The U.S. dollar strengthened. The price of crude oil rose by $0.64 to $50.47. Gold stunk up the joint, closing down by $15 to $1,253. Market Vectors Gold Miners ETF (GDX) sliced through the 200-day moving average. As I have stated, large gap downs in gold have usually taken two to three days to stabilize and begin recovering. Tomorrow could be the third day. I am still small SPDR Gold Trust ETF (GLD) as a portfolio hedge against central bank lunacy. I want to be there but the only question is price and entry level. I suspect we are close after the two-day panic (and loss of $60/oz). Agricultural commodities: wheat down $0.09, corn down $0.07, soybeans up $0.03 and oats up $0.04. Lumber up $2.50. Bonds continued to roll over on lower prices, higher yields. The 10-year U.S. note yield rose by three basis points and closed at 1.744%. The long bond yield moved similarly. I remain large short in the iShares Barclays 20+ Yr Treas.Bond ETF (TLT) (which was down $0.75). It is now $7 lower than when I introduced it to my Best Ideas List (short) and wrote about A Generational Bottom in yields in July. The 2s/10s spread steepened 1.5 basis points to 89 basis points (well off of the recent 81 basis point low). Municipals and junk bonds exhibited little price change despite the decline in Treasuries. Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB)  down $0.06. I would avoid. Banks continued strong, extending recent gains. Insurance better (led by MET). I am now scaling into shorts after being quite small after covering most weeks/months ago. Good reduce yesterday in Hartford Financial Services (HIG) , this week's Trade of the Week after a 5% rise from Monday.

Huh? Bank shares rallying at the same time as bond market-equivalent stocks?

The U.S. dollar flat-lined. The price of crude oil increased by $2 a barrel to $46.67 on the OPEC chatter, previously mentioned. Gold fell by $4.60 to $1,325 ... not trading well. Agricultural commodities mostly lower: wheat was down $0.02, corn down $0.02, soybeans down $0.07 and oats down $0.01. Lumber up $1. Bonds were unchanged, with little movement in yields. The 10-year yield was up 1, and the long bond was flat. 2s/10s (yield curve) flat at 81 basis points. Municipals flat, but junk bond prices ripped after OPEC and closed much higher on the day. Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) rose $0.13 to nearly $15. I would sell this strength. Banks rallied despite the lousy publicity: Congressional uproar and California state's temporary cancellation of its business relationship with Wells Fargo. More in my opening missive. The canary in the coal mine, DB, rallied after weeks of weakness. My view? Neidermeyer, dead. Deutsch Bank (DB) dead.  REITs fell small, after broad gains in the last few days. I added to my iShares Dow Jones US Real Estate ETF (IYR) short. Insurance and brokerages rallied -- albeit modestly. Staying long HIG and short Morgan Stanley (MS) , Goldman Sachs (GS) , Metlife (MET) and Lincoln National (LNC) . Biotech under-performed. Allergan (AGN) , Gilead Sciences (

Mr. Market. But it seems, these days, the market is again resuming to have no memory from day to day. Bonds' stronger price, lower in yield. The 10-year yield is down three basis points (bps) and the long bond by nearly 5 bps. Importantly the yield curve is really flattening; with the 2s/10s spread down to only 81 bps I remain short the iShares Barclays 20+ Yr Treas. Bond ETF (TLT) . Brokerages and banks rally after being sharply lower on Tuesday. I am short Goldman Sachs (GS) and Morgan Stanley (MS) -- but small Insurance reversing yesterday's "schmeissing." I added to my large Hartford Financial Services (HIG) long. Retail a good sector led by Home Depot (HD) and Target (TGT) . Technology +. Twitter keeps chirping. (T)FANG, save Tesla (TSLA) . Coca-Cola (KO) rallies after recent weakness. (Not good for me, 'cause I am short.) The Bad The price of crude oil is lower today, down by $1.22 to $44.71 a barrel. Gold weaker: down $14 lower to $1330. The Ugly Can't find problem children today.  Programming note: There will be no "Takeaways" as I am going to see the movie "Sully."

Home Depot (HD) , a bull market stalwart, is breaking down.
