I'm feeling pressure to force some trades today, but I'm trying to stay selective.

I expect we will see a further correction in the indices. Here's how I'm playing it.

The U.S. dollar, as discussed above, continued to rip higher against the euro. I am concerned. Mark Grant is concerned. The market is not concerned. The price of crude oil (down $0.20) settled lower after yesterday's robust gains. Gold fell $9 as it continues to break down -- closing in on $1,200. Ag commodities: wheat up $0.07, corn up $0.04, soybeans up $0.05 and oats up $0.02. Lumber up $7 following the big housing number this morning. Bonds schmeissed ... iShares Barclays 20+ Yr Treas.Bond ETF (TLT)  down $1.50. The yield on the 10-year and 30-year notes and bonds rose by about 5 basis points. The 2s/10s spread steepened by 2 basis points to about 125 basis points. Municipal bond funds traded lower. Closed-end funds got hit. High-yield was flat, though Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) rose by $0.05. Banks continued to be the "world's fair" but to this observer it is getting heady and panicky. My finger is on the short Financial Select Sector SPDR Fund (XLF) button. But not yet. Insurers outperformed, but my long Hartford Financial (HIG) under-performed. Brokerages up big again. Very over-bought. Autos mixed. Energy stocks, some profit taking. Retail strong after Wednesday's weakness. Led by Best Buy (BBY) and Home Depot (HD) . Biotech was marginally higher, led by Allergan (AGN) and Celgene (CELG) . Valeant Pharmaceuticals (VRX) still in the regulatory cross hairs. Big pharma down -- but barely. Old media led by an analyst upgrade in Microsoft (MSFT) . Consumer staples plagued by a strengthening U.S. currency. Investment short, Coca-Cola (KO) , can't get out of its own way ... a good thing. Consumer discretionary was mixed. (T)FANG had a good second day in a row -- but stocks off their highs as Netflix (NFLX) turns red. Apple (AAPL) a bit lower after a great day yesterday. Here are some value-added contributions on our site today: 1.Jim "El Capitan" Cramer on banks. I am less positive than Jimmy -- believing that it is late in the financial stock move. 2. Rev Shark on market manipulation.  3. Homie

The U.S. dollar strengthened meaningfully. Any more strength will begin to raise concerns about multinational profits. The price of crude oil expanded by $0.80 to nearly $45/barrel. But, we are still in a short term downtrend. Gold fell be $23. I rebuilt my GLD position on the weakness. We are near the 200 day moving average. Ag commodities: wheat down $0.04, corn down $0.02, soybeans up $0.08 and oats are flat. Fertilizer stocks traded well today. Lumber up $1. Bonds got schmeissed. iShares Barclays 20+ Yr Treas.Bond ETF (TLT) down a beaner. The 10-year U.S. note yield rose by four basis points and the long bond by three basis points. The 2s/10s spread widened by two basis points to 101 basis points. Municipals were surprisingly weaker. Closed end muni bond funds flatlined. But high yield was much stronger iShares iBoxx $ High Yid Corp Bond ETF (HYG) +$1 and SPDR Barclays Capital High Yield Bnd ETF (JNK) +$0.40. Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) +$0.13. Banks benefited from the steepening yield curve. I shorted JPMorgan Chase (JPM) , Citigroup (C) and Financial Select Sector SPDR Fund (XLF) late in the day. Insurance stocks were terrific. Long Hartford Financial (HIG) (large) looks like it might be breaking out. (I still owe you guys an analysis of the good quarter release from last week -- coming soon! Small shorts in Lincoln National (LNC) and Metlife (MET) , rose. Brokerages Morgan Stanley (MS) and Goldman Sachs (GS) were the "world's fair." Autos advanced. I remain short (small) General Motors (GM) and Ford (F) . Retail rebounded. My only long JC Penney (JCP) was punk (up a dime after being up three times that amount earlier in the day). Biotech was +3.5%. Allergan (AGN) , Celgene (CELG) ++ Speculative biotech (Portola Pharmaceuticals (PTLA)  , SAGE Therapeutics (SAGE) , Aerie Pharmaceuticals (AERI) ,  Nektar Therapeutics (NKTR

The U.S. dollar strengthened. The price of crude oil continued to roll over: down $0.66 to $44.68. Ag commodities: wheat down $0.05, corn up $0.02, soybeans up $0.03 and oats down $0.04. Lumber up $5. Bonds got schmeissed (iShares Barclays 20+ Yr Treas.Bond ETF (TLT) down a beaner) after staging a two-day recovery. The 10-year U.S. Treasury rose by 2 basis points in yield while the long bond advanced by 4 basis points. The 2s/10s spread rose back to 100 bps. Municipals were flat to higher. Junk bond prices edged a bit higher as well. Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB)  up $0.02. Banks were mixed. Our Trade of the Week made a morning move higher -- and then dropped to new daily lows. I added on the short side. Financial Select Sector SPDR Fund (XLF) up by $0.08. Insurance was very strong after a Lincoln National (LNC) beat (I remain small short). Hartford Financial (HIG) lacked this time. Brokerages are surprisingly strong, led by Goldman Sachs (GS) . Old tech down - with Comcast (CSCO) , Microsoft (MSFT) and Intel (INTC) lower. Retail still stinking up the joint with Nordstrom (JWN) , Target (TGT) , Foot Locker (FL) et al. notably weaker. I added to a poorly performing JC Penney (JCP) today. Awful sentiment in biotech, pharma and generic -- for obvious reasons. Biotech was a biowreck, breaking support levels. Allergan (AGN)  , Valeant Pharmaceuticals (VRX)  , Merck (MCK) etc lower. Speculative biotech like Sage Therapeutics (SAGE)  , Portula Pharmaceuticals (PTLA) ,  Acadia Pharmaceuticals (ACAD) , Aerie Pharmaceut
