In spite of the National Retail Federation raising its fourth-quarter holiday sales forecast to 4% as opposed to the original 3.6% number, nearly all retailers of consequence who have issued preliminary holiday sales results (Wal-Mart Stores (WMT) , TJX Companies (TJX) , Ross Stores (ROST) , Best Buy (BBY) , Bed, Bath & Beyond (BBBY) and Nordstrom (JWN) have not yet released estimates) have indicated weaker comparable-store sales at their brick-and-mortar facilities. The market has punished all misses at this juncture.

In the retail space I am only long JC Penney (JCP) and short Home Depot (HD) . (JCP is the subject today of a technical piece by Real Money's Bruce Kamich.)

Bonds and bond-equivalent stocks (REITs, utilities and consumer staples) act well -- as concerns about the possible timing of fiscal stimulation (not surprisingly) surface. Notes and bond yields are about 3 basis points lower in today's session -- at the low this morning they were down 6 basis points. iShares Barclays 20+ Yr Treas.Bond ETF (TLT) up a little less than a beaner. Retail better on a more defined probability (lower) of a border tariff tax. J.C. Penney (JCP) , Target (TGT) , Walmart (WMT) , Kohl's (KSS) and Norstrom's (JWN) leading the way. Energy stocks stronger (on a higher crude oil price) -- Schlumberger (SLB) Exxon Mobil (XOM) are up. Hartford Financial (HIG) a standout in the insurance space. Added to this name. Campbell Soup (CPB) continues to exhibit good absolute and relative price action. I Love Gold! And I have added to SPDR Gold Trust ETF (GLD) . Oaktree Capital (OAK) up for the fifth day in a row (but modestly so). I have added to The Mighty Oak. Oil up $0.60. Gold up $17.60! The Bad Brokerage, banks and insurance are stinking up the joint. A good thing, as I am short Goldman Sachs (GS) (a recent Best Ideas List short), Bank of America (BAC) , Citigroup (C) , JP Morgan Chase (JPM) ,
