They are all now in play, until proved otherwise.

I started the day with a discussion of the new administration's policies and why I believe there are headwinds to their passage over the next few months or quarters.

Think of it as a consumer-products company, like Gillette.

Stronger volume and bullish indicators should take KMB higher.

The U.S. dollar strengthened on Fed chair Janet Yellen's labor market remarks. Multinationals face this expanding headwind. And so do countries that have borrowed in U.S. dollars. The price of crude oil flat lined. Gold up $2. Ag commodities lower across-the-board: wheat down $0.02, corn $0.04, soybeans $0.13 and oats up $0.01. Lumber down $2.50. Bonds staged a good rally. The yield on the 10-year fell by 5 basis points to 2.55% and the long bond by a comparable amount. The 2s/10s spread fell by 2 basis points to 131 basis points. Municipals were well bid and closed-end muni bonds enjoyed an up (but modest) improvement. Junk bonds were also higher. Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB)  up $0.03. Banks held their gains despite lower bond yields. Insurance stocks were mixed. Brokerages showed no price movement. Autos continue to stall. I am out of my shorts, here. Energy stocks were unchanged, in line with crude oil. No positions here, either. Biotech did little. Dead cat bounce for Valeant Pharmaceuticals (VRX) . Gilead Sciences (GILD) rallied and some speculative biotech ripped (Portola Pharmaceuticals (PTLA) , Intrexon (XON) ). Retail (more on this subject tomorrow) was irregularly higher, led by JC Penney (JCP)Kohl's (KSS) and Home Depot (HD) . Media was stronger, led by Disney (DIS) , which got a Bank of America (BAC) upgrade. Fertilizers are mixed - Potash Corporation of Saskatchewan (POT) lower (I am still not interested in this name), Monsanto (MON) higher. Consumer staples were lower - with Kimberly Clark (KMB) and Coca-Cola (KO) leading to downside. But Campbell Soup (CPB) , a long, caught a bid. Ag equipment mixed, showing no correlation today to commodities. (FANG) was higher, but moderately so. Amazon (AMZN) and Alphabet (GOOGL)  were both up. In individual stocks DuPont (DD) still DuLovely. Radian (RDN) now modestly higher, after being weak all day. Oaktree Capital OAK still getting its leaves t

It is important to note that the euro briefly fell below $1.05, the lowest since March, 2015. If this trend continues, multi-national profits will be shattered. Though in line with expectations, the Fed move tanked bonds (moving the yield on the 10-year U.S. note up by 10 basis points to 2.58%). ( My Generational Bottom in Yields call is getting more powerful on a daily basis). Crude got hit badly, down $2 a barrel. Gold slammed again. And, stocks tanked -- with a classic buy-the rumor-sell-the-news event this afternoon.  Peter Boockvar on the Fed's move, here and
