The market continues to be in rally mode as everyone watches the presidential inauguration ceremonies. Biotech is not participating in the rally. Bristol Myers-Squibb (BMY) is one reason the sector is not participating, as its key oncology drug Opdivo will not pursue accelerated approval to be used in the treatment of front-line lung cancer. Shares are down some 10% on this news. Competing oncology compound Keytruda seems to have the momentum right now and has been powering Merck's (MRK) shares recently.

The U.S. dollar weakened. The price of crude oil rose by about two bits to $51.40. Gold fell by $8 to $1,203. I am buyer, to replace the half position I sold soon. Ag commodities: wheat down $0.08, corn up $0.02, soybean down $0.05 and oats up $0.01. Lumber was flat. For the second day in a row bonds got schmeissed iShares Barclays 20+ Yr Treas.Bond ETF (TLT) down over a beaner, again. (Good sale in fixed income last week!) The 10-year bond yield rose by 7 basis points to 2.46%. The long bond yield rose by 5 basis points. The 2s/10s expanded by 4 basis points to about 124 basis points. Municipals got hit and so did closed-end muni-bond funds. High yield was junky - but Blackstone / GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) rose by a penny. Banks continue to be sold for a second day in a row -- despite much higher bond yields and lower bond prices. Crickets from financial bulls -- who seem to rationalize the large move this week and lack of correlation to bonds as a random act. Our "Trade of the Week" (short C) is now down by 5.5% or $3 since the trade was discussed in my Diary. Retail remains for sale. But my view is that a sentiment extreme is developing. Insurance stocks got whacked, including fav Hartford Financial (HIG) . Brokerages got hit, too. Goldman Sachs (GS) , put on Best Ideas List last week at $242, is down to $231. Biotech was lower, but not materially so (Celgene (CELG)Allergan (AGN) lower). Hwwever, spec biotech roiled to the downside (Intrexon (XON) , Ziopharm Oncology (ZIOP) , Acadia Pharmaceuticals (ACAD) , Aerie Pharmaceuticals (AERI) ). Autos mixed. Ford (F) up, General Motors (GM) down. Good for our
