The CBOE 10-day put/call has declined to below 0.90 -- a sign of extreme optimism. But in early summer the figure fell to close to 0.81. The 10-year U.S. note yield has moved 15 basis points lower from its 2.51% recent peak. A move below 2.3% might indicate that 2.5% was important resistance, and this could place pressure on bank stocks and selected financials, which slowed down a bit yesterday and underperformed. The five-week advance/decline intermediate momentum indicator has moved from oversold to overbought during the Trump rally.  On the other hand, we now have more than 420 new highs -- the highest reading in 23 months -- and a Dow Theory buy signal has been triggered with the transports following the industrials to new highs. Tactically, I took much of my index shorts off around midday as conviction was trumped -- pun intended -- by risk control and management. Fortunately, some of our core investment longs Radian Group (RDN) , DuPont (DD) , Campbell Soup (CPB) and JC Penney (JCP) (up 4% yesterday) moved to recent highs and a number of my trades (long iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond ETF (TLT) , short TLT puts, for example) panned out successfully, as have some important short positions been additive to performance, such as Apple (AAPL) , Starbucks (SBUX) , the autos (which I covered yesterday) and Coca-Cola (KO) (which has been reduced) , as well as some short-term rentals such as short Cisco (CSCO) , which was covered this week.

The U.S. dollar has weakened considerably. The price of crude oil was down by about two bits to $51.45. Gold fell by another $4 to $1,174. Ag commodities got a lift: wheat up $0.04, corn up $0.11, soybeans up $0.16, oats down $0.15. Lumber down $2. Bonds, the object of my affection today ("Trade of the Week"), reversed from early morning lows. After yields rose by more than 4 basis points on the 10-year, the close was relatively flat. TLT slipped $1.20 from Friday's close, ending the day slightly higher. Bravo! Municipal bonds sold off. But closed-end muni-bond funds got a lift (e.g., Eaton Vance Municipal Incm 2028 Term (ETX) and Blackrock Taxable Municipal Bond Trust (BBN) ) -- hard to explain why, though! The 2s/10s spread dropped by two basis points to 127 basis points. Banks, stated simply, are continuing to be the "world's fair" -- regardless of what rates do. Short Bank of America (BAC) , Citigroup (C) and JP Morgan Chase (JPM) (all small). Brokerages bullish -- led by Goldman Sachs (GS) (on a late HSBC (HSBC) buy upgrade today, seriously??!!!). But insurance lagged, though my long Hartford Financial (HIG) was modestly higher. Auto stocks stalled. I am still small short General Motors (GM) and Ford (F) . Retail was stronger -- with upside leadership from Nordstrom (JWN)  , Best Buy (BBY)  , Foot Locker (FL)  , Nike (NKE) and Urban Outfitters (URBN) . JC Penney (JCP)

The U.S. dollar weakened. The price of crude oil rallied for a second day in a row, rising $1.50 to almost $51. Gold flat, no bounce. Agricultural commodities: Wheat up $0.07, corn down $0.05, soybean unchanged, oats up $0.05. Lumber up $1. Bonds got schmeissed but traded well off the day's lows (as the 10-year yield touched 2.5%). The 10-year and long-bond yields rose by 9 basis points. The 2s/10s spread rose by another 5 basis points to 130 basis points. Muncipals were lower. Junk bonds got hit badly, despite the rise in crude oil. Blackstone / GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB)  rose $0.08. Banks were powerful to the upside. I reshorted at reasonably good prices in the afternoon, after covering my small rental shorts in pre-market trading earlier. Insurance stocks flew. Long Hartford Financial (HIG)  , which rose. Brokerages so strong -- Morgan Stanley (MS) and Goldman Sachs (GS) (up $7). Retail was strong led by Target (TGT) , Foot Locker (FL) , Nike (NKE) and JC Penney (JCP) (long). Autos were the "world's fair." I still have tag end short positions. I expect the upside move to get over-done short term, and I will reload on the short side. Energy stocks up, but small relative to the commodity. Old tech was clobbered. International Business Machines (IBM) , Intel (INTC) , Cisco (CSCO) (short and working nicely) and Microsoft (MSFT) got bashed along with the entire sector. Biotech was down 2%. Allergan (AGN) and Gilead Sciences (GILD) were weak. New lows Vertex Pharmaceuticals (VRX) . Spec weak again (Portula Pharmaceuticals (PTLA) , Sage (SAGE) , Intrexon (XON) , FibroGen (FGEN) , ACADIA Pharmaceuticals (ACAD)  . Big pharma hurtin' badly, once more. Merck (MRK) , Bristol-Myers Squibb (BMY) and Eli Lilly (LLY) being liquidated, much like tech. Media mixed message. Disney (DIS) lower. Ag equipment: Deere (DE) up large on an upgrade, though Caterpillar (CAT) still experiencing weak fundies. Consumer staples broadly lower. Campbell Soup (CPB) excelled on a relative basis, though. (T)FANG a source of funds. Tesla (TSLA) , Facebook (FB) , Amazon (AMZN) and Alphabet (GOOGL) a collective mess. In individual stocks: DuPont (DD) , new high. Radian (RDN) up another up 2%. Oaktree Capital (OAK) not so mighty. Apple hit. Here are some value-added contributions on the site today: 1. Jim "El Capitan" Cramer on " Not What Bulls Wanted to See ."  2. "Meet" Brett Jensen on rotation.  3. Tim "Not Judy or Phil" Collins

The U.S. dollar strengthened, a continuing headwind for companies that derive much from non-U.S. territories and regions. The price of crude oil +$3.85 on the OPEC agreement -- a feature of today's trading session. Gold down $15 to $1,175. Ag commodities: wheat down $0.06, corn down $0.01, soybeans down $0.10 (finally correcting the big advance) and oats up $0.01. Lumber up $1. Bonds got taken to the woodshed. The yield on the 10-year U.S. note rose by eight basis points and the long end climbed by a like amount. The 2s/10s spread widened by six bps to 128 basis points. Municipals got hit. Large losses, again in closed-end muni bond funds. Stay away!  High yield was modestly higher in price and lower in yield. Blackstone / GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB)  down $0.02 cents. Banks responded to rising rates and a steeper yield curve. I am still in my short rental in Citigroup (C) , JP Morgan Chase (JPM) and Bank of America (BAC) . Brokerages were the "world's fair" as the Mnuchin hire (former Goldman partner) as Treasury secretary kindled the animal spirits in Morgan Stanley (MS) and Goldman Sachs (GS) . Insurance companies prospered. Long Hartford Financial (HIG) recovered. Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.A) , lagged. Auto stocks were weak. See Peak Autos and disarray in auto lending markets.  Energy stocks exploded. Retail was conspicuously weaker with only Best Buy (BBY) on my screen, higher in share price. JC Penney (JCP) off only by a nickel. (I am bidding $9ish for JCP). Target (TGT) , Walmart (WMT) and Coach (COH) downside leaders. Old tech was noticeably weak - International Business Machines (IBM) , a downside feature. Consumer staples were weaker and my fav short in the sector, Coca-Cola (KO) was down 2% at a new y

I try through rigorous analysis to identify sectors and companies with intermediate-term prospects that are deteriorating relative to consensus expectations, isolating those areas and corporations with secular growth prospects that are reduced by a changing business landscape. Examples of stocks that I am short that may fit this description include Disney (DIS) , Coca-Cola (KO) and Apple (AAPL) . But this morning I want to look at current and possible shorts -- a shopping list, so to speak -- by iden

The U.S. dollar was weaker. The price of crude oil dived. Crude down $1.91 to $45.17 a barrel. Gold down $2 after yesterday's strength. No biggie. Ag commodities lower: Wheat down $0.05, corn down $0.09, soybeans down $0.10 and oats down $0.04. Lumber down $7. Bonds are slightly higher on the day after early morning weakness. The yield on the 10-year note and 30-year bond are down by 1 to 2 basis points. The 2s/10s spread is flat at 121 basis points. Banks are mixed -- I made a series of short rentals. Brokerages strong -- Goldman Sachs (GS) still the "world's fair." Insurance is higher, save my long Hartford Financial (HIG) ! In miscellaneous finance, The Mighty Oak (Oaktree Capital (OAK) ) looks more healthy than in recent weeks. But I don't know why! Retails is mixed but long JCP hitting a double. Autos stocks slightly plus. Biotech reverses yesterday's weakness. Allergan (AGN) and Celgene (CELG)  are winners. Big pharma continues to stink up the joint. Oil stocks, loved by the media on the "shows" yesterday, are downside leaders. Exxon Mobil (XOM) and Schlumberger (SLB) weaker. Consumer staples are lower. Short Coca-Cola (KO) tripping over itself. But long Campbell Soup (CPB) on the positive side. Consumer discretionary showing strength. My short Starbucks (SBUX)  is up on the day. Media better. Comcast (CMCSA)  up $1.70, an upside standout. Old tech is mixed. International Business Machines (IBM) weaker (after being strong yesterday) and Microsoft (MSFT) an upside leader. Ag equipment down hard the second day in a row. I have been adding to my Caterpillar (CAT) short (down $0.80). Deere (DE)  down $1.25. (T)FANG is mixed with Tesla (TSLA) lower (down $4.50 on my Best Ideas List, short) and Alphabet (GOOGL) up double digits. Amazon (
