The U.S. dollar weakened. Crude oil ramped up to $46.06, up $1.40, proving most pundits wrong both on the downside early this year and the upside recently.  As I have warned, few commodities forecasters are very rigorous in their projection process.  Me, I had a general and strong view that OPEC was dissolving and prices would drop last October. Today, I don't know.  Gold was up $12.40 to $1,277. Agricultural commodities: wheat -2.50, corn -3.25, soybean -5.25, oats -4.25. Lumber down 50 cents. Bonds rallied. The 10-year note yield dropped by two basis points to 1.74% and the long bond by three basis points to 2.58%. Municipals were well-bid, but closed-end municipal bond funds were mixed. Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) was down six cents to just below $14. Banks fared well for most of the day but turned red in the mid-afternoon. Small losses, though. Financial Sector Select SPDR ETF (XLF), the object of my recent disaffection (I am short), was off 26 cents. Insurance generally declined, though Lincoln National (LNC) was flat. Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.B) continued to lose ground, down nearly $2 again today. Brokerages got hit; I covered too early this week. Private equity stocks continue to lag. Retail was the story of the day -- it was a nuclear holocaust. Nordstrom (JWN), my short, was down by $3.40. Macy's got whacked by $5.60. Others were a mess, too. Old tech was weak, led by IBM (IBM), down a beaner. Energy stocks failed to rally in the face of the commodity rise, but losses were contained. Schlumberger (SLB) and Exxon Mobil (XOM) were off fractionally. Auto stocks were lower. Ford (F) was off 20 cents and General Motors (GM) was down 27 cents. They seem to be rolling over after recent gains. Media was weighed down by the Disney miss. DIS was down $4.65 and Comcast (CMCSA) was off 60 cents. Consumer staples were hit across the board. Agricultural equipment performed well in a relative sense -- flat. Biotech was another group that gave a false signal yesterday. iShares Nasdaq Biotechnology ETF (IBB) was down 2%. Valeant (VRX) was down 5.5% and has no rally. My former speculative biotech basket was rotten to the core with large losses. Celgene (CELG) was down $2.50 and Gilead Sciences (GILD) down $2; I believe they are both value traps. (T)FANG was higher most of the day but got hurt with chatter over antitrust issues with Alphabet (GOOGL), down $7. AMZN is a monster, up another $12. Tesla (TSLA) was up small, though Netflix (NFLX) broke down $2.80. NOSH was unappetizing; Nike (NKE) was down $2, O'Reilly Automotive (ORLY) was off $6, Starbucks (SBUX) declined $1.20 (I am short and the shares appear to be rolling over; I might add to this position on any strength) and Home Depot (HD) slid $3. CRABBY's six components were lower.  In terms of individual stocks, Apple continues to stink up the joint (down nearly a beaner -- it remains in liquidation mode). Short or sell it, don't hold it! Twitter (TWTR) up flat, Potash (POT) continues weaker, Radian Group (RDN) is back down and Oaktree Capital Group (OAK) declined 85 cents and is getting back to my buying levels. Long fav DuPont (DD) slipped 30 cents. iShares MSCI United Kingdom (EWU), my short Trade of the Week, was down by only four cents. I remain short. Here are some great columns that appeared on Real Money Pro today: Jim "El Capitan" Cramer on how to win!  Gary "The Sun Will Come Out To" Morrow writes about Facebook (FB) -- he is not high on the stock but is a buyer on weakness.  The stock, like Amazon, continues to be a beast! Jared "Not Bob" Woodard features the latter company in his post.  Tim "Not Phil or Judy" Collins sees issues at Perrigo (PRGO).  Jeremy LaKosh on GM as a value play. He makes some solid points, but I remain short the name.   Tony Owusu sees a silver lining at Disney.

Continuing the theme that I expressed in my last missive, I note that bank stocks have suddenly reversed from session highs to session lows.

I recently warned that the rotation out of former market leaders and into oversold financial, cyclical, industrial and energy/commodities stocks could be short-lived and have adverse broad-market ramifications.

The U.S. dollar weakened meaningfully in the trading day. The price of crude oil rose by 35 cents a barrel to $44.13. Nat gas dropped by six cents. Gold was essentially flat at $1,274. Agricultural commodities = schmeissburger. Wheat -9.75, corn -3.50 and soybean -21.75. Lumber +3.40. Bonds rose in price, and were lower in yield. The 10- and 30-year note and bond moved down by 2.5 basis points, yielding 1.75% and 2.61%, respectively. Municipals were well-bid, and closed-end municipal bond funds continue to float higher to new 2016 highs. I had permature termination in this space late last year! High-yield debt was flat, but Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) was up three pennies to $14. Banks stocks were disappointing and continued a multiday selloff. I remain short Financial Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLF) at good prices. Brokerages were lower by about one-half percent. I covered my Goldman Sachs (GS) and Morgan Stanley (MS) shorts earlier in the week. Life insurance, my favored short sector because of reduced reinvestment opportunities in a low- rate setting got whacked. Lincoln National (LNC) was down $2 and MetLife (MET) a beaner. Hartford Financial Services Group (HIG) was conspicuously higher, up 15 cents. I like the pair trade long HIG/short MET-LNC. Energy stocks were unchanged. Old tech traded flat, save IBM (IBM), up $2. Retail got hit on L Brands' (LB) bad comps and mall concerns. Nordstrom (JWN), a short is my only holding in retail. Agricultural equipment, on the heels of a Caterpillar (CAT) diss from Greenlight's David Einhorn, were down measurably. Autos, despite a plug of General Motors (GM) by Einhorn at the Sohn Conference, were flat. Consumer nondurables fell as our currency strengthened. Disney (DIS) led media, up $1.10. Biotech is still drek. Speculative biotech rolling over. (T)FANG was weaker, led by Amazon (AMZN), down $11, and TSLA, down $10. I added to the latter short today. NOSH was yuck. In individual names, Mr. Market gave yesterday but took away today in Twitter (TWTR) and Potash (POT) -- I wouldn't bottom fish, as I have mentioned recently. The Mighty OAK -- Oaktree Capital Group -- was flat, and DuPont (DD) was down 55 cents. Apple continues to trade rottenly, down $1.15. Apple needs a visionary, a house hippie, in my view. Here are some great posts on Real Money Pro today: Jim "El Capitan" Cramer on what's working now.  Tim "Not Phil or Judy" Collins goes Texas on us in his discussion of a controversial Freeport-McMoRan (FCX)!  Robert "Not Rita" Moreno on CAT's technicals. Another controversial one in which Jimmy and I hold to differing viewpoints.  James Passeri on a great review of the Ira Sohn Conference -- a must read!  Chris Laudani rains on Macy's (M) parade.
