The U.S. currency weakened. The price of crude oil rallied by 67 cents after yesterday's schmeissing. Gold climbed by five bucks to $1,364. Agricultural commodities: wheat -6, corn -9, soybean flattish after yesterday's crash, oats +2. Bonds were flat after starting the day strong. The yield on the 10-year note and long bond were up one basis point to 1.38% and 2.14%, respectively. The 2s/10s spread was down to eighty basis points. Municipals were well-bid. Closed-end muni bond funds were mixed. The high-yield bond market prospered again. Banks were up, but not considerably. They seem to be laboring under the obvious pressures. Brokerages were flattish, disappointing after the schmeissing recently. The same applies to life insurance stocks, which can't get out of their own way. Now we have 30% plus gain in our shorts of Lincoln National (LNC) and MetLife (MET), which is a good thing. Retail was higher after serial weakness this year. My shorts Nordstrom (JWN) and Foot Locker (FL) were up large fractions. Home Depot (HD) retains sector leadership, but Bruce Kamich disses Lowe's (LOW).  Auto stocks are laboring under a peak print months ago in the seasonally adjusted annual rate; after the close, S&P lowered its auto sales forecasts. Energy stocks were mixed to higher. Old tech was dull with little price movement. Staples were stable. Media was quiet, though my short Disney (DIS) was up 60 cents. A nice boost in biotech. iShares Nasdaq Biotechnology (IBB) was up $5 and from these levels I could see some continued strength. Valeant (VRX) was an upside feature, rising more than 15%. (T)FANG was led by Facebook (FB) and Amazon (AMZN). In individual stocks, my long fav DuPont was weak (I am buying), Twitter (TWTR) was flat, Hartford Financial Services Group (HIG) was down a half buck and Oaktree Capital Group (OAK) was slightly higher on the day. My short Apple (AAPL) up 50 cents. Away from our site here are two good reads: Andrew Sorkin's summer reading list.  Knowledge@Wharton on China's debt load.  There also was a lot of value-added product on our site today: Spy vs. Spy on oil with Jim "El Capitan" Cramer and Tim "Not Judy or Phil" Collins.  Ben "Goldfinger" Cross is long and strong gold.  Mike "Stormin" Norman lives up to his name as he

The U.S. dollar weakened. Crude oil rose by $1.67 to $48 a barrel. Gold dropped by $10 to $1,314. Agricultural commodities: wheat -2, corn unchanged, soybean +15, oats +2.50. Lumber +10.00. Bonds were flattish. iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond ETF (TLT) was up 29 cents, likely buoyed by terrorism in Turkey (see above). The 10-year yield was unchanged at 1.46% and the long bond also flat on yield at 2.27%. Non-taxables were flat and closed-end muni bond funds were pennies higher. The high-yield bond market was higher, reversing yesterday's large losses. iShares iBoxx High Yield Corporate Bond ETF (HYG) was up $1.03 and SPDR Barclays High Yield Bond ETF (JNK) was up 44 cents. Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB), down 20 cents yesterday, recaptured 16 cents today. Banks were the "world's fair" and were market leaders with gains of 3% to 4%. I purchased positions (long rentals) on Monday in Citigroup (C), Bank of America (BAC) and JPMorgan Chase (JPM). Insurance stocks were upside features after they were decimated by nearly 20% in the last two days. My long Hartford Financial Services Group (HIG) rose by over a beaner. Lincoln National (LNC) and MetLife (MET) also were up $1, which, considering the magnitude of the previous decline, was quite disappointing. I covered much of my life shorts on Monday. Brokerages flourished. I purchased Goldman Sachs (GS) and Morgan Stanley (MS) on Monday, and today they were up $3 and $1, respectively. Retail was mixed. Home Depot (HD) and Lowe's (LOW) led, but NKE and FL were down after the NKE miss. My short Nordstrom (JWN) was up $1. Auto stocks underperformed. I had covered a lot yesterday. Energy was responsive to higher crude oil prices. Schlumberger (SLB) was up $1.60 and Exxon Mobil (XOM) rose $2.20. Both shorts were covered yesterday. Old tech was strong, led by IBM (IBM) and Microsoft (MSFT). Biotech went from goat to hero. iShares Nasdaq Biotechnology ETF (IBB) climbed $9, led by Allergan (AGN), which was up $10. A dead-cat bounce for Valeant (VRX), which was up $1.40. Speculative biotech also moved higher. Agricultural equipment was stronger, led by dollar gains at Caterpillar (CAT) and Deere (DE). Media was up. I covered Comcast (CMCSA) yesterday. Disney (DIS) rose $1.65. (T)FANG attracted buyers, with Amazon (AMZN) and Alphabet (GOOGL) strong. Netflix (NFLX) rose 4%. In individual stocks, my long fav DuPont (DD) was under pressure and fell $1.33, Oaktree Capital Group (OAK) gained fractionally and Twitter (TWTR) was up a half a buck or so. In sectors, Consumer Staples Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLP) and Materials Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLB) were underperformers. I covered them recently. Here are some valuable contributions on our site today: Jim "El Capitan" Cramer on more than FANG.  Ben "Godlfinger" Cross on, what else? Gold!   RevShark on Da Bulls and Da Bears. Rev is uncertain about today's implications, and I respect his honesty!  Shad Gad "And the Pharoahs" is patient in an impatient market.  Tom Graff on bonds.
