Here is what we see (updated):
The US Dollar is more valuable than it was on Friday against commodities and other currencies.
However, US Treasury Bonds are more valuable, and interest rate yields are lower.
By 1110 ET: Dollar is stronger still. This is bad for US Equities.
Eurodollar at 1.0243
Also, we see Oil/WTI down sharply to $101.11 and even gold down to $1766.80.
So, the US Dollar is more valuable for reasons other than yield.
This appears to be a flight to safety.

S&P 500 Has a cup and handle pattern that is bearish.
At the end of the day, the S&P 500 was up slightly. We were right to have low conviction on the decline today. We felt the decline in long-term interest rates was too bullish for stocks to let them fall too much. However, breadth was very bad, with new lows greatly outnumbering new highs (1,040 : 31).
