One hike is already priced into the market.

Mr. Market is still resilient. As happened two days ago, he faltered in the morning but later recovered. Retail stocks are stronger, led by Foot Locker (FL)Lowe's (LOW) and Nike (NKE) . I covered my FL short earlier today, but

The Federal Open Market Committee meeting minutes were Much Ado about Nothing. Danielle "Double D" Dimartino Booth went "Don Henley" on us. Are we "Peak U.S. Consumer"? Click here and here for details. We're Peak Hedge Funds for sure. I sold half of our Trade of the Week -- puts on the PowerShares QQQ ETF (QQQ) -- for a profit. But I added to my long of the ProShares UltraShort S&P 50

The U.S. dollar weakened. The price of crude oil rose again by more than $1 to $44.53. Gold fell by $9 to $1,341. Agricultural commodities were volatile: wheat +6, corn +2, soybean -1 and oats -1. Lumber +1.50 after yesterday's sharp fall. Bonds reversed yesterday's losses, and I lost on my short bond trade/investment! Yields on the 10-year and long bond fell by five basis points. iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond ETF (TLT) gained more than a beaner. The 2s/10s spread flattened a bit to nearly 80 basis points. Municipals were well-bid, and closed-end muni funds were better. Junk bonds were up modestly. Banks had a second weak day in a row. Insurers and brokerages also were lower as yields fell. Energy stocks rallied. Auto stocks were lower. Ag equipment faded. Retail continued to sparkle, led by Nordstrom (JWN) (small short), Target (TGT) and Foot Locker (FL) (small short). Old tech was moribund. Biotech flat lined. Media was conspicuously lower. Staples were non-descript. Is (T)FANG getting tired? In individual stocks, my long fav DuPont (DD) was down nearly 2% on a European Union "in depth" review of the planned DuPont/Dow (DOW) merger, which could also jeopardize Bayer's quest for Monsanto (MON) . Sanford Bernstein is concerned. Here are some value-added contributions on our site today: Jim "El Capitan" Cramer, like Chauncey Gardiner, is watching. And he also opines on Twitter's "point of intent."  Mark "Summer in the City" Sebastain on volatility.  Eric Jackson on comparing Amazon AMZN (then) to Tesla TSLA (now). Strong analysis!  Guy Ortmann on valuations.  Tom Graff on retail sales and the Fed.  Enjoy the weekend!

The U.S. dollar strengthened. Crude oil rose by $1.66 to $43.37. I heard a lot of references in the media that today's stock market rally was a function of the increase, but stocks were nonplussed when crude went from $50 to $40. I think it is the massive amount of liquidity, sourced by global central bankers, discussed in my Bloomberg appearance. Gold was down $8 to $1,344. Ag commodities: wheat -6, corn -1, soybeans +2, oats -2. Lumber -7 (that's a large change to the downside). Bonds got clobbered; I continue to believe a generational bottom in bond yields occurred in July. My large iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond (TLT) short saved me today. The 2s/10s spread was flat at 81 basis points. Municipal bonds and high-yield debt were flattish. Closed-end muni bond funds were mixed. Banks were higher but underperformed. The same applies to insurance and brokerages. Auto stocks (I cautioned on Wednesday) were slightly higher in the trading session.  Energy stocks rallied off of the higher commodities prices, but the advance was contained. Biotech was up 1%, though Valeant Pharmaceuticals (VRX) was a downside feature after fraud claims. Ag equipment was mixed, as was media. Old tech was reserved in its advance. In individual stocks, Twitter's (TWTR) advance -- up 74 cents -- was conspicuous, wiping out all of the losses after its earnings release. I updated my view this week and have been adding on weakness, but wouldn't chase now.  (T)FANG: two up, two down and one flat. Here are some value-added contributions on our site today: Jim "El Capitan" Cramer on retail.  Tim "Not Judy or Phil" Collins on J.C. Penney (JCP) .  Roberto "Not Rita" Moreno on Bank Santander.  RevShark on calling the top, again.  Mike Norman on a potential surge in financial stocks.

This Treasury ETF could soon show an island formation; but then again, maybe not.

The U.S. dollar strengthened in response to the good jobs report, up 0.75% for the week. The price of crude oil was flat, near $42, after yesterday's smart rally. Gold got schmeissed, down $25 to $1,342. I am watching for a buy entry point but rate differentials and a stronger U.S. currency could pressure precious metals in the near term. See Ben Cross below. Agricultural commodities: wheat +13, corn +2, soybeans +18. Lumber +6. Bonds were hit hard. Short bonds is now my largest investment position. iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond ETF (TLT) was down $1.45. The yield on the 10-year U.S. note rose by nine basis points to 1.59% and the long bond by six basis points to 2.32%. The 2s/10s spread expanded by two basis points to 87 basis points, aiding financial stocks. Municipals got hit and closed-end muni bond funds suffered. Banks were standout beneficiaries from the jobs report. I covered my Financial Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLF) short trade earlier this week. Brokerages were higher. Life insurers rebounded from MetLife (MET) inspired weakness on Thursday. In pharma, Merck (MRK) and Bristol-Myers Squibb (BMY) provided the fireworks, with the former up 10%-plus and the latter down 16%. Retail was inspired by better jobs numbers. Nordstrom (JWN) , my principal short, reversed earlier-week weakness. Old tech was boring, doing little. Autos were up, but only modestly. Media was better. Consumer staples suffered under the weight of a strong U.S. dollar Ag equipment was better, coincident with rising ag commodities. (T)FANG was better, but only modestly so, save Tesla, which was lower. In individual stocks, my long Twitter (TWTR) continued higher. ProShares UltraShort S&P 500 ETF (SDS) , my Trade of the Week, fell by 1.7%. Not so good. Here are several value-added contributions on our site today: Jim "El Capitan" Cramer on the jobs reports supporting the market's gains.  Ben "Goldfinger" Cross on another buying opportunity in gold. I read this one twice! "Big" James Gentile on "what gives" with this market?  Ed Ponsi "Scheme" on "will the real Tesla stand up?"  Rev Shark on getting the market "juiced." Enjoy the weekend!

The iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond ETF (TLT) is down some 1% this morning, while the 30-year U.S. Treasury yield is up eight basis points.

My call of a generational bottom in bond yields looks more right than ever. As a result, I've added to my short of the iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond ETF (TLT) on fixed-income prices' recent strength. I covered my small short of the Financial Sel
