The dollar strengthened and is now at a four-month high; I find that few are looking at this. The price of crude oil fell by two bits to under $45 a barrel. Gold is up $3 to $1,332. Agricultural commodities got schmeissed: wheat -10, corn -13, soybean -35 and oats -2. This could weigh on fertilizers and ag equipment stocks. Lumber was down $3 following the housing starts numbers. Bonds rallied. The 10-year U.S. note yield fell by three basis points to 1.555% while the long bond yield dropped by the same basis points to 2.275%. I would add to my short with yield drops back to 1.5% and 2.2%, respectively. Municipals were better to buy. Closed-end muni bond funds continue to rebound. Yesterday the sector was very strong after days of weakness). Junk bonds are stronger. Nonetheless, Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) was lower by a few pennies. Banks were mixed, though Bank of America's (BAC) strong Monday carried through today. I am looking for a Financial Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLF) short entry point. Brokerages were lower despite the Goldman Sachs (GS) beat. Here is Jimmy Cramer's take on Goldman. Life insurance was mixed. I am adding aggressively to HIG (where there is smoke, there is fire?)  Staples saw little price movement. Biotech was weaker. Speculative Intrexon (XON) (a former holding and Biotech Basket member) and Ziopharm Oncology (ZIOP) getting clipped again. Ag equipment got hurt by the drop in commodities prices. Both Caterpillar (CAT) and Deere(DE) are lower. I would add to my CAT short above $80 a share. Retail was broadly lower. I have no longs in the space. My shorts Foot Locker (FL) and Nordstrom (JWN) were back down after strong gains on Monday. (T)FANG was up small, save for NFLX's big drop. Here are some value-added contributions from our great team: Tim "Not Judy or Phil" Collins in preparation of the Mr. Softee's (i.e., Microsoft's (MSFT) ) earnings report today.  "Meet" Bret Jensen on three reasons to expect a pullback.  RevShark on anticipation. I keep on way-way-waiting!  Roger Arnold on ways to play a recovery in first-time home buying.

This trade gives ample time to see interest rates rise.

I'm currently plenty short in the market, but if I had room for more short positions, I'd be shorting banks via the Financial Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLF) on this morning's earnings beat from Citigroup (C) .

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
