Traditional bricks-and-mortar furniture retailers are making a comeback, proving that consumers like to feel the furniture before bringing it home.

The U.S. dollar is stronger. The price of crude oil fell by $1.33 to $46.77. Gold slipped by $17 to $1,329 and appears likely to threaten support at $1,300 to $1,310. Agricultural commodities. wheat -2, corn -1.5, soybean -9, oats flat. Lumber -7 on weak housing data. Bonds are down small. The 10- and 30-year note and bond yields are unchanged. So was the 2s/10s spread (80 basis points). Municipals and junk flat lined, as did Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) and closed-end muni bond funds. Banks remain the world's fair.: Brokerages are holding in well. Same goes for insurance, but my long Hartford Financial Services Group (HIG) is a laggard. Biotech down by about 2%. Allergan (AGN) and Celgene (CELG) are leaders to the downside, with speculative biotech taken to the woodshed, too. Profit-taking continues in retail. Autos are mixed. Energy stocks nonplussed by oil's descent, thus far. Old tech is mixed, but IBM (IBM) is a downside feature. Media is down small. Ag equipment is weaker (I dissed CAT this morning, added to my short) Staples are lower on a stronger currency. In individual stocks, my longs Radian Group (RDN) and DuPont (DD) are doing God's work! Oaktree Capital Group (OAK) is trading better, but it is an odd stock and it's mostly difficult to understand its daily moves. (T)FANG all lower, but not materially. Here are some valuable contributions on our site today: Jim "El Capitan" Cramer on oil and the little guy.  Tim "Not Judy or Phil" Collins sees Babe Ruth -- i.e., Facebook (FB) -- striking out.  Skip Raschke on frowning (and shorting). Rev Shark is waiting for Godot.  Roger Arnold on a rate rise by the Fed (Fischer-style).

JCPenney (JCP) briefly broke $10 to the downside this morning.

Be forewarned -- as I mentioned yesterday, the hot weather that we're seeing in much of America could dent retailers' third-quarter results.

The U.S. dollar weakened. The price of crude oil rose by about 65 cents to over $48 a barrel. Gold flat-lined. Ag commodities were schemissburger: wheat -7.5, corn -5, soybean -3.5 and oats -2. Lumber +1. Bond prices and yields were unchanged. The 2s/10s spread moved one basis point to 80 basis points (it fell yesterday). Municipals were unchanged; same for closed-end muni bond funds. But the high yield bond market rallied, and Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) moved up by 12 cents. Banks continue to hold on to large gains. Same for brokerages. On the other hand, insurance was mixed. Retail was the world's fair, led by Best Buy (BBY) , Nordstrom(JWN) , Home Depot (HD) and Nike (NKE) . Autos were flat. Energy stocks generally ignored higher crude prices. Ag equipment is still hot. Staples were mixed. Biotech flat-lined but there was movement within the group. Old tech was nada. (T)FANG was better, led by Tesla (TSLA) and Netflix (NFLX) . Here are some valuable contributions on our site that were worth mentioning: Jim "El Capitan" Cramer on what we learned from last year's Eve of Destruction.  Tim "Not Judy or Phil" Collins on his intrigue with gold now.  Ben "Goldfinger" Cross goes all Tina Turner on us.  "Retail" Ben Sozzi writes not to buy Best Buy's hype. Tom Graff is on Yellen watch.

The retailer's business structure is changing for the worse -- and it's being ignored.

The market has cured many stressed out players, but also created new ones.

I recently began establishing a long of J.C. Penney (JCP) , and I plan to add further to this position once the market opens this morning.
