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

Bonds and bond-equivalent stocks (REITs, utilities and consumer staples) act well -- as concerns about the possible timing of fiscal stimulation (not surprisingly) surface. Notes and bond yields are about 3 basis points lower in today's session -- at the low this morning they were down 6 basis points. iShares Barclays 20+ Yr Treas.Bond ETF (TLT) up a little less than a beaner. Retail better on a more defined probability (lower) of a border tariff tax. J.C. Penney (JCP) , Target (TGT) , Walmart (WMT) , Kohl's (KSS) and Norstrom's (JWN) leading the way. Energy stocks stronger (on a higher crude oil price) -- Schlumberger (SLB) Exxon Mobil (XOM) are up. Hartford Financial (HIG) a standout in the insurance space. Added to this name. Campbell Soup (CPB) continues to exhibit good absolute and relative price action. I Love Gold! And I have added to SPDR Gold Trust ETF (GLD) . Oaktree Capital (OAK) up for the fifth day in a row (but modestly so). I have added to The Mighty Oak. Oil up $0.60. Gold up $17.60! The Bad Brokerage, banks and insurance are stinking up the joint. A good thing, as I am short Goldman Sachs (GS) (a recent Best Ideas List short), Bank of America (BAC) , Citigroup (C) , JP Morgan Chase (JPM) ,

The U.S. dollar firmed making a multi-month high against the euro earlier in the day. Crude oil was flat, closing right on the figure of $54 a barrel. Gold rose $4, and I re-established my long this week, although it's still small. Ag commodities were schmeissed for the second day in a row: Wheat down $0.075, corn down $0.065, soybeans down $0.08 and oats down $0.01. Lumber rose by nearly $5. Bonds had a spirited rally with TLT up a beaner. Closing at $118.70 I went long for a trade at $117.30 yesterday in anticipation of a Friday rebalancing on the part of pension plans (selling stocks, buying bonds because of the large differential of performance). Sir Arthur Cashin mentioned as much as $35 billion in stocks to sell. Stay tuned. Some might have been taken off today. The yield on the 10-year and long bond fell by about 5 basis points. The 10-year is approaching 2.5% (a two-week low). The 2s/10s spread flattened by 2-3 bps to 1256 basis points. Municipal bonds were well bid but closed-end muni-bond funds continue to be sold (more tax selling likely). Junk bonds were lower but Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) went contra, up a large $0.10 to a recent high. I am not sure why the divergence because bank loan market didn't move much. Banks sold off and I re-established an Financial Select Sector SPDR Fund (XLF) short. A contrarian pay and consistent with my bond market expectations over the next few months. See 15 Surprises here and here. Insurance stocks got schmeissed. I am long Hartford Financial (HIG) and short Metlife (MET) and Lincoln National (LNC) (recent Best Idea List inclusions). Net net I made out fine in the space. Autos sold off. I plan to be a buyer of General Motors (GM) in a general market correction. Old media was sold. IBM (IBM) , short, down a buck. I recently added. Energy shares lower despite an unchanged crude oil price. Consumer staples were lower, save my long Campbell Soup (CPB) (that acts like a champ). Retail broadly on sale. JC Penney (JCP) held up well -- and I re-established some January and May short put positions taking in premium on a stock I like and would buy at lower levels). Biotech stunk with Gilead Sciences (GILD)  and Celgene (CELG)  both weak. Best Ideas new member, AGN was up $3 and I named it my favorite large-cap long for next year. Speculative biotech was clipped, too (Intrexon (XON) , Sage (SAGE) and ACADIA Pharma
