Last week's Trade of the Week -- short SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY) -- was a good one. So was the prior week's Financial Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLF) short.

My intermediate-term fair-market-value projection for the S&P 500 is about 1,900, or some 7.5% below the index's current read of roughly 2,056.

Here's how I intend to play the wild session ahead.

The SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY) -- our Trade of the Week -- which we shorted at $209+ a share. The PowerShares QQQ ETF (QQQ). The iShares Russell 2000 ETF (IWM). My other plans: I'll be covering my short of the iShares MSCI United Kingdom ETF (EWU). I might also take off my small short of the Financial Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLF), even though "lower-for-longer" interest rates could doom bank-industry earnings. That said, my XLF moves will depend on how much the financials drop today. I'm also taking SPY, QQQ, IWM and EWU off of my "Best Short Ideas" list, due to changes in those ETFs' risk-vs.-reward quotient this morning. Given the likely rise in volatility (not to mention the possible market chaos that we might see), I plan to use an opportunistic trading strategy today. I'll place both my long and short investments on the back burner and won't increase my long-term commitments. Instead, I plan to opportunistically trade on the long side (an area where I'm not currently well represented), but will be so only on a short-term trading basis for now. That said, it's conceivable that good longer-term long opportunities will arise over the next few weeks or so. The Bottom Line Uncertainty, risks and rewards will all abound today, but I want to err on the side of conservatism. I'll harvest some of my short gains, then approach the market in an opportunistic manner on both the long and short sides. I'll be back to market neutral by the time the opening bell rings today, and then I plan to trade aggressively. Most people other than the most facile and quick traders should probably just sit on the sidelines and watch today's acti

Roughly half the market cap of foundering Yahoo (YHOO). Twice as large as the market cap at struggling Twitter (TWTR), which has just 3% of the workers that Deutsche Bank does. Some $3 billion to $4 billion above the estimated market cap of privately held Snapchat (based on a latest funding round). But remember, Snapchat an unprofitable tech company so far, and produces just some $100 million in annual revenues. Ignorance Isn't Bliss "Where ignorance is bliss, 'tis folly to be wise." -- Thomas Gray, Ode on a Distant Prospect of Eton College (1742) Some say that Wall Street should ignore the massive drop in DB's share price -- but many said the same thing about Lehman Brothers, Fannie Mae, Countrywide and other U.S. financial institutions that crashed during the 2008-2009 market meltdown. And as I noted the other day, Zero Hedge put out an interesting chart comparing Deutsche Bank's price action to that of Lehman: Source: Zero Hedge Personally, I say that ignoring Deutsche Bank's implosion and the associated risks (counterparty, etc.) is beyond the pale. It's also a poor analysis of the situation that European banks currently face, as well as how much the European econo

The U.S. dollar strengthened today against the euro. Crude oil was down 50 cents to $48.40. Gold was up a beaner to $1,288. Agricultural commodities were mixed: wheat -4.50, corn +6.50, soybean flat, and oats +1. Lumber -5.25. Bonds were flat after a sharp rise in the early going. The 10-year yield and long-bond yield are unchanged. The 2s/10s spread is flat at about 92 basis points. Municipals were higher in price and closed-end muni funds continued to glow. High yield (I am watching closely, see above) was down. Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) might be breaking down; it was down 12 cents on the day to $14.55. If I held, I would sell. Banks are worrisome as I wrote, with losses of 2% to 3% for the money centers. I remain short Financial Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLF), which is working; it was down 34 cents, or nearly 1.5% lower. There were so many bank bulls on the recent rise; they have now disappeared and have been silenced. Again, stay independent in thought and mostly throw out the price followers who are trying to sell you something! Insurance was broadly lower. Life stocks Lincoln National (LNC) and MetLife (MET) schmeissed,  but my long Hartford Financial Services Group (HIG) is still outperforming the market and its peer group. I am watching this one closely. Brokerages were awful and rolling over. Retail was weak. My short Nordstrom (JWN) was down by $1; it's my only position in the space. Home Depot (HD) was off $2.50 and conspicuously on the downside. Autos are unsound and running out of gas as previously mentioned. Energy shares were lower, but not materially. iShares Nasdaq Biotechnology ETF (IBB) was down nearly $2. There was no large individual security drops, but a broad-based decline. I have been out of the sector for almost two weeks now. Media was better, led by my short Disney (DIS), up 80-plus cents. Comcast (CMCSA) was up a quarter. Staples were stronger, hurting my Consumer Staples Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLP) short, though it is small in size. Ag equipment was down fractionally. (T)FANG was mixed. Tesla (TSLA) saw profit taking. Netflix (NFLX) reversed from a good gain to a small profit. In individual stocks, my long fav DuPont (DD) suffering from profit taking; I am eyeing the low $60s to replace what I recently sold off. I'm still medium in size, though. Oaktree Capital Group (OAK) continued to slide a bit today, but iShares China Large-Cap (FXI) was up a few pennies. I would short any strength. Sector exposure: XLP up, Materials Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLB) down (more!). Here are some value-added columns on our site today: Jim "El Capitan" Cramer on inspiration from Jay Leno.  Tim Melvin on funds with attractive yields.   Bobby Lang on volatility. (I will have more on the subject tomorrow.)  Jim Collins, Tim's illegitimate son, on the whacky bond market.  Roger Arnold on "The Paradox of Thrift" -- a frequent topic of mine.
As of 10:09 PM all major indices appear on track for about a 0.6% rise tomorrow morning. L...
