My opener captured my near-term market view and levels of support and resistance.  The market is in the hands of machines and algos -- they are ruining sentiment and our business.  Dow Intradaze!  Words can't describe today's (T)FANG Insanity, which was demonstrated in trading in Amazon (AMZN) both during the trading day (up $52) and after hours (down $80!). Thanks to my pal David Rocker (Rocker Partners legend) for getting me to write about the insanity. My exchanges with Rev Shark in Columnist Conversations are an example of the uniqueness of our site and the value of respected debate.  Auto stocks, despite a good Ford (F) beat, were lower on the day. I wrote again about "Peak Autos."     I covered my small Amazon short in after hours at $549. I plan to re-short on strength.  Here is my short rationale.  Ss (S &P) and Qs (Nasdaq) over Rs (Russell). The U.S. dollar was weaker. Crude oil closed up $1.46 to $33.76. Natural gas was six cents higher. Gold was down $2. I remain uninvolved and I plan to stay uninvolved. Agricultural commodities: wheat and corn were both four cents lower; soybeans got crushed, down fifteen cents. OJ prices ripped higher, up 8%. Bonds got hit a bit and interest rates rose modestly, by one to two basis points in yield. Municipals were flat but closed-end municipal bond funds rose smartly, with some gaining close to 1% --BlackRock Municipal Income Trust II (BLE), BlackRock Municipal Target Term Trust (BTT) and Eaton Vance Municipal Income 2028 Term Trust (ETX) High-yield bonds were well-bid -- iShares iBoxx $ High Yield Corporate Bond ETF (HYG) was up 40 cents and SPDR Barclays High-Yield Bond ETF (JNK) was up 15 cents. Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) had an outsize gain of 35 cents, the largest daily move I can remember, and traded over $13 briefly. I have remarked in each of my last three Takeaways that the price action was improving. Phew! Financials had a good day, with regional banks beating out their money center brethren. I added to Citigroup (C), Bank of America (BAC), Wells Fargo (WFC), Comerica (CMA) and Fifth Third Bancorp (FITB) in the last two days. WFC is my long "Trade of the Week." Life insurance stocks were modestly higher. I am long Hartford Financial Services Group (HIG) and short MetLife (MET) and Lincoln National (LNC). Energy stocks responded brilliantly to the crude price rise. Last week I opportunistically covered Schlumberger (SLB) and Exxon Mobil (XOM) at really good prices. Today, SLB was up $4 and XOM rose $1.70! Retail stocks were weaker, but only modestly so. I suspect the proximate cause was higher energy prices.. Old tech was stronger and Microsoft (MSFT) results were an after-hours highlight, with shares up 2%-plus after the close.  Media still is weak, led by my Best Ideas List short, Disney (DIS).  (T)FANG was insane and broadly higher, but obviously got hit after the close, reflecting Amazon's miss. Facebook (FB) was the world's fair, but Netflix (NFLX) was conspicuous in its continued underperformance. I covered FB short last week at $91.30. Tesla (TSLA), my short "Trade of the Week," was flat, including after hours. Here is my NFLX short write-up. The shares are about $20 lower than its price when I put it on my Best Ideas List as a short a bit more than three months ago. So far, so good. NOSH was strong, with Nike (NKE) and O'Reilly Automotive (ORLY) doing well. Starbucks (SBUX) was also higher, a short. CRABBY was higher, thanks to BAC and BGB. Two new Best Ideas flourished -- Goldman Sachs (GS) and Procter & Gamble (PG). GS was up $3.40 and is now $6 above my Best Ideas price entrance. Du Pont (DD) hasn't done as well but was higher today and I am accumulating. More on all three by next week. Weight Watchers (WTW) down by more than a beaner, as Oprah gained four pounds this week from too much bread! Alibaba's (BABA) price reversal was vicious, closing down $3 after being up a like amount. The headline numbers were good, but there was less than meets the eye regarding their quality. I would stay clear of Yahoo! (YHOO) despite a lot of interest that I received from subs. Potash (POT) traded better after the dividend cut. I will update my thoughts on the conference report and results. My other loser, Radian Group (RDN), even rallied. More on this one soon -- still trying to come to grips with the reason for the sharp price drop. Glib, your name is Laszlo Birinyi. I am sorry to write so bluntly, but it's true as I vividly recall his self-confidence on "Fast Money." Self-confidence is the worst trait in a business with so much uncertainty. Remember this message when you get the "hard sells" in the business media.
