The U.S. dollar strengthened. The price of crude oil fell by $1.50 to $48.40. Gold was essentially unchanged. Agricultural commodities: wheat flat, corn -9, soybean +42(!!) and oats unchanged. Lumber +4. Bonds rose slightly in price. The "action" in iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond ETF (TLT) seems toppy to me, but I am short less on price action and more based on fundamental analysis and historical relationships (see above). The yield on the 10-year U.S. note was unchanged at 1.48%. The long bond yield was up one basis point to yield 2.29%. The 2s/10s spread was up by two basis points to 90 basis points. Municipals were well-bid. Closed-end municipal bond funds were mixed. The high-yield bond market was strong, while Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) was up 11 cents. Banks were a bit of a disappointment, failing to materially follow through after the stress tests were announced. Insurance stocks were disappointing. Small gains for Lincoln National (LNC) and MetLife (MET). Brokerages thrived. Morgan Stanley (MS) rose 75 cents and Goldman Sachs (GS) was up $3. Premature sellage by me. Retail stocks were mixed to lower. Foot Locker (FL) and Nike (NKE) were lower after large gains on Wednesday. Nordstrom (JWN), a short, was up 18 cents. Old tech was stronger, led by IBM (IBM), up $3. Autos were weak, down most of the day. Not a good sign to be in the red on such a strong day in the markets. Agricultural equipment was mixed. Media had a mixed message, though Disney (DIS) and Comcast (CMCSA) were higher (I covered on Monday). Energy stocks shined despite a large drop in crude prices. Exxon Mobil (XOM) and SLB were up nicely. Programs? Regardless, another weird feature of today's market. Biotech was disappointing. iShares Nasdaq Biotechnology ETF (IBB) was flat, with several large and speculative stocks clearly rolling over. New lows for Valeant (VRX). Staples were the world's fair after the Mondelez (MDLZ) MDbid for Hershey. Consumer Staples Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLP), covered on Monday, surged by $1.22. Campbell Soup (CPB) and Pepsico (PEP) were up big. (T)FANG was mixed. Tesla (TSLA) was strong in the regular session, but sold off in the after hours after some safety concerns. In individual stocks, Hartford Financial Services Group (HIG) was up $1.22 (I have been steadily accumulating). My long fav DuPont (DD) was up 90 cents after getting schmeissed in the last few days. There was a vague (and to me, silly) rumor of a Potash (POT) takeover; it makes no sense because Canadian government sees the company as important to the country as an independent entity. Coca-Cola (KO), a short, got caught up in the strength of the defensive sector. Here are some valuable contributions on the site today: Nice video on banks by Jim "El Capitan" Cramer.  "Big" James Gentile is looking forward to fireworks, but not the ones over the holiday weekend!  Brian Sozzi on food companies hurrying up to merge.  Tony Owusu on Facebook's (FB) friendliness.  Rev Shark on meddling central bankers.

KO estimates were cut through 2017, Barclays said. Management reduced guidance, citing sales headwinds. Equal-weight rating and $44 price target.

The U.S. dollar was quite strong today. Crude oil got whacked,down by nearly $2 to $46.20. Gold gained $2 at $1,290 but was well off day's highs. SPDR Gold Shares (GLD) was down $1.26. Agricultural commodities mostly were lower: wheat -4, corn -4, soybean -22(!) and oats flat. Lumber was up $4. Bonds continued a spirited rally, with iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond ETF (TLT) up 66 cents. The yield on the 10-year dropped by three basis points to 1.565% and the long bond by four basis points to 2.38%. The 2s/10s spread was down to 89 basis points for a new multiyear low. Municipals were well-bid and closed-end municipal bond funds were smartly higher. The high-yield market was stagnant, but Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) was down an outsize 10 cents. Banks were mixed. The ETF, which I covered in the morning, rose substantially from the lows and was up more than a nickel on the day. Brokerages had no bounce despite the recent declines. Insurance also was mixed. Berkshire (BRK.B) rose a beaner. Retail stocks were mixed. My short Foot Locker (FL), which deals in sneakers, was down by almost $1. Energy stocks were divided. Exxon Mobil (XOM) was up $1 but Schlumberger (SLB) was down half a buck. Biotech continued to lag, as I suggested a few weeks ago when I dumped the group holdings. Allergan (AGN) was weak, and Valeant (VRX) was at a new low. Autos were up marginally. Old tech was nothing. Media and ag equipment were mixed. Consumer staples were higher, not mindful of the dollar's strength. Though my sole short, Coca-Cola (KO), rose 30 cents. TFANG underperformed the broader market as Facebook (FB) continues to breakdown following Citron Research's negative research report earlier in the week. Trade of the Week Twitter (TWTR) gave up a dime after two good days. It's up 9% from Monday's purchase. (I added on today's weakness earlier.) In individual stocks, long fav DuPont (DD) rallied back a beaner, Oaktree Capital Group (OAK) was down small and Hartford Financial Services Group (HIG) finished with a nice gain of half a buck (I added today). In country ETFs, iShares MSCI United Kingdom (EWU) was up 0.5% and iShares China Large-Cap (FXI) was flat. In sector ETFs, Consumer Staples Select Sector SPDR (XLP) and Materials Select Sector SPDR (XLB) were up small. Here are some good contributions on our site today: Jim "El Capitan" Cramer on a showdown on Brexit and oil.   Eric Jackson on Viacom (VIAB).  Mike Norman is buying.  James Passeri on Valeant.  Tin "Not Phil or Judy" Collins on Dow Chemical (DOW).

The U.S. dollar weakened today. Crude oil dropped two bits to $48.85. Gold was up $10.50 to $1,287, making an assault back at the $1,300 resistance area. Agricultural commodities: wheat -3, corn +7, soybean flat and oats +3.50. Lumber -3.50. Bonds rallied for another day. iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond ETF (TLT) was up 40 cents. The yield on the 10-year U.S. note dropped by two basis points to a record low 1.61%. The long bond dropped by one basis point to 2.44%. The 2s/10s spread was flat at 91 basis points. Municipals rose and closed-end municipal bond funds continued to rise. High-yield bonds were hit. Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) fell by eight cents. Banks slipped and continue to show signs of rolling over. Financial Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLF) was down 0.5%. I have been adding to the short. Insurance was mixed, but my only long, Hartford Financial Services Group (HIG), climbed by 50 cents.   Brokerages continue to underperform. Retail was mixed to lower. My short, Nordstrom (JWN), was a standout to the downside, off $1.10. Old tech was lower, led by IBM (IBM). Autos also were exhibiting signs of rolling over. Biotech continues its recent weakness, with iShares Nasdaq Biotechnology ETF (IBB) down 1%. Allergan (AGN) was up almost $3, but most others were lower. I have no interest in bottom fishing and the technical recovery mentioned by some appears to be not so much. Agricultural equipment was lower led by short Caterpillar (CAT). Media was mixed, though Disney (DIS) was stronger. Staples were weaker despite a lower U.S. currency -- my fav large-cap short Coca-Cola (KO) was down 45 cents. Energy stocks were mixed, with Exxon Mobil (XOM) up and Schlumberger (SLB) down. TFANG was quiet, though Facebook (FB) was down $3 on a Citron Research negative report. In selected individual securities, Monsanto (MON) and The Mighty Oak -- aka Oaktree Capital Group (OAK) -- were noticeably weaker. Alibaba (BABA) broke bad. My long fav DuPont (DD) was down by nearly a beaner. Country shorts iShares China Large-Cap (FXI) and iShares MSCI United Kingdom (EWU) were lower, going the right way for the manner in which I am positioned. Sector shorts Consumer Staples Select Sector SPDR (XLP) and Material Select Sector SPDR (XLB) - also are going in the right direction. Here are some valuable contributions on our site today: Jim "El Capitan" Cramer on natural gas elbowing out coal.  Ben "Goldfinger" Cross on a possible breakout in the precious metal.  Tim Melvin on three bank stocks to avoid.  James Passeri on Valeant (VRX) and Walgreens (WBA).  Robert "Not Rita" Moreno on a Facebook short.
